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.

  1. Open 1Password
  2. Choose a login that has a one-time password
  3. 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.

  1. Open 1Password on Apple Watch
  2. Press the side button to show the Dock
  3. Swipe up on 1Password and tap Keep in Dock
