How to Use 1Password to Protect Your Site + Connect RebelMouse to Google Analytics and Search Console
1Password is RebelMouse's preferred method to securely store and transfer login credentials. Fundamental to understanding 1Password is the concept of "vaults." RebelMouse will create a new vault for your company. In this vault, you will not only find the passwords we want you to have access to, but you'll also use your vault to add credentials you want to share with/transfer to RebelMouse. This way, anytime you need to share a password with us, you can add it to your company vault and vice versa.
To begin, you'll receive an email from your account manager inviting you into our 1Password system. You can ask for invitations for several users on your side if you wish. Follow the instructions provided by your account manager to set up your account. It's important to note that you should write down your master password in a secure location as this will be important to have for future logins.
How to Set up 1Password
You can use 1Password entirely in your browser if you wish. The directions will be the same. If you don't want to use your browser to access 1Password, here's how to download and install 1Password's app:
- Click on your name in the upper right-hand corner of your 1Password account.
- Select Get the Apps.
- Choose the appropriate download for your system.
- Install the downloaded file, and follow the instruction prompts to complete the setup process.
Adding Details and Passwords to 1Password
Click on [Your Company Vault] to access the system. This is where you'll see all of the project's relevant credentials stored. This is also where you'll add your own credentials if necessary.
To add a new entry, click the + button on the bottom (or top) of the screen.
A pop-up window will appear with many different options for the types of things you can store, including logins, passwords, and secure notes.
Typically, you will select Login. You can now enter the relevant information into 1Password. The most relevant will be username, password, website (URL of where you log in), and, if applicable, notes.
You can now view, add, edit, or delete credentials in your company vault. Please keep in mind that we only give temporary access to vaults during the time frame in which we need to share credentials with each other.
How to Give RebelMouse Access to Your Google Analytics Account
Sign in to your Google Analytics account. Click the gear icon in the bottom left-hand corner, and then make sure you're in the ADMIN tab. In the account, property, or view column (depending upon whether you want to add users at the account, property, or view level), click User Management.
In the list of users, click +, and then click Add users.
Next, enter the email address for the user's Google account. (RebelMouse will inform you of which email addresses need to be added.) Select Notify new users by email to send a message to the user(s) when you're done. Finally, select the permissions you want the user(s) to have and then click Add.

How to Give RebelMouse Access to Your Google Search Console Account
Owners have full control over properties in Google Search Console. They can add and remove other users, configure settings, view all data, and use all tools. If you want to give someone limited access, add them as a user instead.
How to Add an Owner
To add another user as an owner, or upgrade someone's status from user to owner, open your Webmaster Central page. Then choose a property, scroll down to the Verified owners section, and click Add an owner.
Next, add in the new owner's user information and click Continue. Finally, ask the new owner to add the property to their property list.
How to Add a New User
Choose a property in your Google Search Console account. Next, click Settings (gear icon) and then select Users and permissions. From there, click ADD USER and type in the email address of the user you want to add — RebelMouse will inform you of which email addresses need to be added — and select the permission the user should have:
- Full: Has view rights to all data and can take some actions.
- Restricted: Has simple view rights on most data.
Finally, click ADD. The property will be added to the new user's Google Search Console account automatically.
How to Give RebelMouse Access to Your Mailchimp Account
RebelMouse has its own Mailchimp agency account that we use to team up with our clients. If our team needs access to your Mailchimp account, we will simply send you a request from ours, which you can then accept to grant access. All we will need from you is an email address that is associated with a Mailchimp user account that has admin-level access.
If you want to know more in-depth details about the process, please see Mailchimp's documentation on agencies.
If you need any help around granting us access, please see Mailchimp's documentation on how to grant account access.
