Abby covers how to add your passwords and how to edit the entries.
- [Instructor] Chances are, the first thing you're gonna want to do in 1Password is start saving you passwords. There are two main ways to do that. First we're gonna take a look at using the 1Password desktop application. Alright, so we're gonna start by clicking this plus button down here at the bottom. And we're gonna choose Login. And this is just if we wanted to save login information for any website like Facebook, Twitter, Meetup.com, anything like that. We're gonna go ahead and name it. And we're gonna be saving some Facebook information. So I'm just gonna type Facebook.
And then we'll go ahead and enter a username. We're using our fake person Sarah and her Facebook login is Red30Sarah@gmail.com. Next up, we're gonna enter her password. Now if we didn't already have a password for Facebook, we can click on this button right here. It kind of looks like a life preserver. But I think it's actually meant to be one of those dial in front of a lock. If you click that, we could generate a password. Now there are a lot of options here. From length, how many digits you wanted.
If you wanted to use symbols. We'll talk more about this later. But it's a good option to know about. I'm gonna go ahead and just delete that. Because Sarah already has a password. I'm just going to go ahead and enter that next. Great. I'll just click outside of that box. At this point we have everything we need to really use it. But the more information we fill in, the easier it'll be to search for this later as we get more and more login information. So I'm just gonna add a little extra.
Under website, I'm just gonna type Facebook.com. I'm gonna go ahead and add a note. And we'll just say this is Sarah's Facebook account. And I'll go ahead and add a couple of tags. We'll add a personal tag. As you type these, you just separate it by a comma. And that'll differentiate the different tags. And let's add another tag called social. Perfect. I think that's enough information. I'm gonna go ahead and click save. Great, so now if they were to switch over to Chrome, or any web browser, and we were to go to Facebook.com, and we go to our 1Password browser extension.
If I click it, it automatically searches and finds the right login for us. If I hover over it, I can see all that information that I've just entered. And if I click it, it automatically fills it in. And logs me into Facebook. Now just to show you something really quick, if I were to logout, and try to login again, let' say I try to do it manually this time. And I do red30Sarah@gmail.com and I'm just gonna enter a password that is incorrect this time.
If I go to login, I can see that I can create a new entry into 1Password for this. Or I can update an existing entry. Now, I don't actually want to do either one of these things because what I entered was a wrong password. So I'm actually just gonna click not now. But I wanted to show you this to show you how easy it is to update existing passwords. So down the line when Sarah does change her password, she doesn't have to go to the 1Password application if she doesn't want to. Sarah can login just login to Facebook. 1Password will come up with this prompt. You can just choose update existing and update the password that way.
But like I said, I don't want to do any of that right now. So I'm gonna click not now. Now let's look at the second way to enter information into 1Password. I'm gonna move over to Linkedin. I'm gonna go ahead and just login as if I normally would to Sarah's account. So for Linkedin, Sarah uses a different email address. She uses her work email address, which is firstname.lastname@example.org. which is email@example.com. I'll go ahead and enter the password that Sarah uses for linkedin.
And I'll just click sign in. 1Password automatically prompts us to save this login. So I can see that it's our personal account for Sarah. It automatically named it for us. And then it asks us if we want to add any tags. I'm just gonna go ahead and do that. I'll go ahead and add work, comma and we'll go ahead and add social again. Perfect. And now I'm just gonna save that login. So if I move back to 1Password, the desktop application, I can see that Linkedin account that we just saved, using the browser extension.
Depending on how many online accounts you have, could be time consuming and tedious to enter all of your passwords manually. Remember, using the browser extension will help you remember to enter your password as you're typing them into sites. And will ultimately become your best friend when you're trying to enter those passwords to access your online accounts.
