What exactly is a sign-in address and what is it used for?

What exactly is the sign-in address used for? (like what is it and what does it do?) It just seems a bit redundant to use that and my personal email address. I'm sure I'm missing something though!

    Hi @dannim - That's an excellent question! For an Individual account, you're right, it's a bit redundant. That's why the sign-in address is always for this type of accounts. For Family and Team accounts it gives you a recognizable URL like or This gives all members of the account a common URL to access their 1Password data.

    I hope this helps. :)
