I am a new user. What is a 'vault' and what is an 'item'. A beginner's guide would be helpful!

Why is this not a basic part of your site and service?

    Hey @MrNils! Great questions. :) A vault is a container for your passwords, credit cards, addresses, and anything else you want to store in 1Password. They're used to organize your information, and you can have multiple if you want to categorize things. Item refers to all the things I just mentioned — passwords, credit cards, etc. — that are stored within a vault. We also have a glossary of terms used in 1Password if you'd like to peruse it:

    Hope this helps!

  • thanks. I've signed up mostly to manage passwords to websites I use. Do you have a step by step guide to replacing current permissions with the 1pass protocol on each of these sites?

  • Does each website get its own vault?

    @MrNils No problem!

    Do you have a step by step guide to replacing current permissions with the 1pass protocol on each of these sites?

    I assume you mean for changing your passwords? If so, yes we do:

    I'd recommend giving the getting started section of our support website a read to familiarize yourself with 1Password:

    Does each website get its own vault?

    Each website has its own Login item. Login items are stored in vaults. You only need one vault, unless you have more than a few hundred items, then you may want to organize them into separate vaults.
