    When examining email, if you are unsure, it is useful to learn how to use your email client's Show Full Headers for an email to help in differentiating good vs. bad email. But this takes some knowledge about how email is routed, so its difficult for most users.

    When there is a link in an email that you are asked to use, to check the safety of a link, you should copy and examine it before using it. Many Phishing and Snowshoe email scams are designed to look exactly like a legitimate email, and it can be very difficult for most users to detect the difference. Copy the link, paste it, and examine it before using it.

  • Hi. We've had 1password for a while and were just congratulated for signing up and the asked to verify our 1password account and given a number to type in. I tried to look at the link that is in the email, but it just says click this link. My 1password works fine. Is this a spam email?

    @redflower,

    We only began offering 1Password account subscriptions in February, so it's possible that you had a standalone license before that, and just signed up for a 1Password account. In fact, that's exactly what it sounds like you did. In that case, you should have received an email that contains a number. You don't need to click any links in that email; just enter the code when the app prompts you. So there is no risk of phishing since you aren't clicking a link.

    Learn more about the difference between a 1Password account and a standalone license.
