Duo Security is now a part of Cisco

About Cisco



Last Updated: April 3rd, 2019


AgileBits has partnered with Duo Security to bring two-factor authentication to 1Password for Teams and Business, complete with inline self-service enrollment and Duo Prompt.


This document takes you through configuring your 1Password for Teams account to use Duo Push. You'll sign up for a Duo account, set up 1Password to use your new Duo account, and enroll your 1Password username and your device for use with Duo's service.

Once you complete this process, Duo Security’s two-factor authentication platform protects access to your 1Password data by requiring approval when logging in to your 1Password for Teams account.

First Steps

  1. Sign up for a Duo account. The Duo Free plan is free for up to ten users with unlimited applications.
  2. Log in to the Duo Admin Panel and navigate to Applications.
  3. Click Protect an Application and locate 1Password in the applications list. Click Protect this Application to get your integration key, secret key, and API hostname. (See Getting Started for help.)

Treat your secret key like a password

The security of your Duo application is tied to the security of your secret key (skey). Secure it as you would any sensitive credential. Don't share it with unauthorized individuals or email it to anyone under any circumstances!

Configure Duo Security

  1. Log in to your 1Password for Teams website as an administrative user.

  2. Once logged in to 1Password click on your team name in the upper-right hand corner. Click Team Settings.

  3. On the "Team Settings" page click Duo.

  4. Click the toggle control on next to Enable Duo.

  5. Configure the Duo options as follows:

    Option Value
    Remember Device Authentications Specify the maximum number of days that 1Password will skip 2FA for you after a successful Duo login.
    Duo Integration key Copy and paste in the integration key from the 1Password application you created earlier in the Duo Admin Panel.
    Duo Secret key Copy and paste in the secret key from the 1Password application you created earlier in the Duo Admin Panel.
    Duo API hostname Copy and paste in the API hostname from the 1Password application you created earlier in the Duo Admin Panel.
  6. Click Save Settings when done.

Test Your Setup

If you are not enrolled in Duo, you can control the login experience by applying different new user policies to the 1Password application in the Duo Admin Panel. If "Require Enrollment" is applied to the 1Password application, you will be prompted to enroll in Duo on your next login to 1Password for Teams.

1Password Duo Enrollment

If you are already enrolled in Duo, you'll see the Duo authentication prompt when you next log in to 1Password for Teams from the website, desktop app, or mobile app. You can approve a Duo Push authentication request on your smartphone or tablet, approve authentication over the phone, or enter a passcode generated via the Duo Mobile app, text message, or hardware token.

Note that if you have enabled offline access to your vault in 1Password or opted to sync your 1Password information to a local standalone vault then it is possible to view your 1Password information without completing Duo 2FA.
