#LayerUp with 1Password and Intel

May the 4th is World Password Day. That’s always an occassion to celebrate for us at AgileBits, and a great opportunity to remind everyone to get their passwords into shape. But this year is special: our friends at Intel have asked everyone to #LayerUp, and to help them out, we’re serving layer cake.

Like any cake that’s worth the calories, your security starts with a good strong base: your Master Password. But it shouldn’t stop there. Passwords can be guessed or stolen, and, this year, Intel is reminding everyone to protect themselves by using multiple layers of security, whether that’s with multi-factor authentication, or our own system of two-secret key derivation.

This might sound like a lot of work, but if you have a 1Password.com account, you are already protected by multiple layers of security. You don’t even need to do anything. Huh. Turns out you can have your cake and eat it.

Later today we’ll publish a follow-up post which will go into (much) more detail about how we bake our security layer cake and why. But first, it’s time for presents!

    ¿Is Emergency Kit available to those, like me, with Apple’s App Store purchases?
    If not please can you be more specific or targeted when writing articles. Thank you

      Hi Andrew! Thanks so much for the comment!

      The Emergency Kit is something available to all our customers using 1Password membership – either Teams, Families or Individuals. It’s a great back-up document to have in case you forget your Master Password or Account Key.

      If you are subscribed through an in-app purchase, you can still access your Emergency Kit by logging into 1Password through a web browser and downloading it again. If you are using an Individual subscription you will need to go to https://my.1password.com and follow the instructions found on this article https://support.1password.com/emergency-kit/.

      You can find your username, Secret Key and Master Password in your Personal Vault

      If you have a Family account, your URL will be the one you set up when you created your family account.

      Thanks again for commenting!

    when I signed up for 1PW didn’t know about saving an emergency kit or other information. When I get your replies I am usually very busy and it takes me days to try out your suggestions. I could truly use a human factored job performance aid (JPA) like ti have worked on with the Canadian forces in the past for maintenance training. Often what I see is not what you tell me I should be seeing. And having this dialogue capability does not seem to exist. Am I wrong? is there a chat window?

      Hey Paul! If you need help, you can always Contact Us. We handle support via e-mail precisely because folks get busy and e-mail allows you to pick up the conversation where we left off when you do have the time. If one of my teammates has already responded to you, they’ll get notified when you reply, even if it’s weeks or months later and every one of us can see your ticket in our system and can jump in to lend a hand. If you’ve already reached out to support and either haven’t received an initial reply or are still waiting for a follow-up, feel free to reply to this comment with your ticket ID from the auto-reply you received when you first reached out and I’ll hunt it down and see what I can do to help you out. :)
