Learn about each category type in 1Password
Now, you know what categories are all about, this goes into more details about each one. There are some categories that can be filled in in the web mode and they are the first italicized three listed below:
Logins are simple items that just have a username and a password but it can be much more. If you include a website address in it, the web browser in 1Password can use it to fill in those details. If you want, you can also add more than one website address in the same Login item.
Don’t leave your credit or debit cards in random places on your iPhone without protection, store it in 1Password and be confident that it’s secure in 1Password. 1Password can also use these information to make your shopping a bit easier in the web mode as it can fill the data that many sites ask for.
Identities are great for storing names, addresses, job titles, email addresses, and other items related to a particular person. Each person can have more than one identity. This is useful when you have separate information; one for work, one used for home and/or for entering different billing/shipping addresses.
Like the credit cards category, the Identities category can also be filled into websites when the information contained within the specific identity is needed.
Store all the information about your bank accounts in 1Password, so you can always look it up quickly on your iOS devices instead of going through your papers or calling your bank for it.

You can also use 1Password on your computer to attach a copy of your license as an image file to the item and sync it to your iOS devices.
Love email clients instead of web apps? Store all the details you need to log into your email clients in 1Password, so you no longer have to check the email provider’s help documents.
You shouldn’t have to remember or look for your membership IDs to clubs when they ask for it. Just open 1Password, go into this category and you can tell them the ID or some stores will let you use an image of your membership cards instead of the cards itself.
So, if you have stores like that, scan your cards and store it into 1Password on your computer, sync it to your iOS devices and you don’t need to the cards anymore after that.
This category is a special category that stores passwords created with 1Password’s strong password generator. This serves as a safety net, to allow you to refer to them if needed prior to saving them in one of the other categories.
You won’t be able to create new items into this category, instead, use the password generator within the other category items to generate a new password.
