1Password for Windows app

I added my wife to my family account. Bookmarked the website, https://my.1password.com, added the Chrome extention ... and I downloaded the "1Password for Windows" app (she's on Windows 10) - but I did not run it.

Do I need to? What does it do?

    Hi there, and welcome to the forum @dolphin826reality 🐬👋

    Since it sounds like you downloaded 1Password for Windows, but didn't run it -- Your wife will still need to run the 1Password installer that you downloaded, and then they'll be prompted to login to their 1Password Account using the details found in the Emergency Kit she would have downloaded during account creation.

    Once you get that squared away, you'll be all set to get started using 1Password! If you have any more questions, feel free to ask away though! 😊

    Likewise, we have a great guide on getting started with 1Password for Windows that can be found at the link below.


  • Thanks Blake!
