You need computer-based Zotero to use Web-based  See the Zotero page to install and use.


Open up your computer-based Zotero panel, go to the gear icon and set Preferences for Sync.  Enter you username and password.  Be sure to erase this afterwards, if you're on a public or shared computer.

I recommend that you not check the box for "Sync automatically."
