Many online services offer two-factor authentication (also known as two-step verification) as an additional layer of security that helps protects your account. 1Password can be used as an authenticator app that generates six-digit codes for services that make use of one-time passwords.
Instead of opening or switching to 1Password on your iPhone or iPad whenever you need a verification code, the 1Password app for Apple Watch keeps them within easy reach.
- Open 1Password
- Choose a login that has a one-time password
- Tap Add to Apple Watch
Your login now appears within the 1Password Apple Watch app and displays a verification code that refreshes every 30 seconds.
For easy access, keep 1Password located within your Apple Watch’s dock. To do this:
- Open 1Password on Apple Watch
- Press the side button to show the Dock
- Swipe up on 1Password and tap Keep in Dock
Now, your verification codes are always available just by pressing the side button and selecting the 1Password app.
