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!

Duo Universal Prompt

Duo's next-generation authentication experience, the Universal Prompt, is coming to web-based applications that display the current Duo Prompt in browsers.

Migration to Universal Prompt for your 1Password application is a two-step process:

  • Update the 1Password application to support the Universal Prompt.
  • Enable the Universal Prompt experience for users of that 1Password application (when the Universal Prompt becomes available)

1Password needs an update to support the Universal Prompt when it's ready, but the update isn't available yet. The "Universal Prompt" section reflects this status as "Waiting on App Provider". Please contact AgileBits to request Duo Universal Prompt support for 1Password.

After AgileBits makes the necessary changes available you may need to install an application update on your server, or log in to 1Password as an admin to enable Duo Universal Prompt support.

Universal Prompt Info - Update Not Yet Available

You'll later return to the settings on this page to activate the Universal Prompt for your 1Password users once we've released it.

Click the See Update Progress link to view the Universal Prompt Update Progress report. This report shows the update availability and migration progress for all your Duo applications in-scope for Universal Prompt support.

Test Your Setup

Enable Hostname Whitelisting

If you plan to permit use of WebAuthn authentication methods (security keys, U2F tokens, or Touch ID), Duo recommends enabling hostname whitelisting for this application and any others that show the inline Duo Prompt before onboarding your end-users.

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.
