Instructions are vague for setup up 1Password as an Authenticator

Here is the link.

This section is vague and I do not uderstand.

When I login to my 1Password I get a series of vaults to choose from. I do not see a "login item for the website" like the instructions on this page say to select. What login item and what website?

Can someone please explain the instructions to me?

Thank you,

    Hi @jlucero! Welcome to the forum!

    What login item and what website?

    The website for which you are trying to configure two factor authentication. I suppose you already have a list of items store inside 1Password, correct? If you do, click on that Login item inside 1Password.

    For example, if you want to configure two factor authentication for you Google account, click on your Google login inside 1Password and click on the Edit button, so you can continue with the remaining steps in the instructions.

  • Ok I don't have any of the sites in 1Password just vaults, O365 is the one I want to setup. I will have to find instructions to add one of them to 1Password. Thank you!

    If you install the 1Password extension in your browser and login to the website, 1Password will prompt you to save those credentials inside the app. That is going to be the easiest ways to add your logins to your 1Password vault ;)
