1password App Refrences Mac Os X

1password1password App Refrences Mac Os X

1Password 7 uses the Secure Enclave in your Mac to protect your encryption key when you use Touch ID, so that no programs on your computer can interfere. Single process architecture 1Password 7 combines the main app and 1Password mini into a single process, which eliminates connection issues and provides a secure and reliable communication channel.

Hey @MBehr and @Thomas_U! Thanks for the question and sorry for any confusion. 1Password X is our newest browser extension that works directly with a 1Password.com account and doesn't even require a standalone 1Password app like 1Password 7 for Mac or 1Password 7 for Windows in order to function. It's pretty great if you've got all your data in a 1password.com account, since you're now restricted only by what browsers you can install (Chrome and Firefox, as well as some Chrome derivatives like Brave and Vivaldi, are supported). So it works on Linux, on Solaris, nearly anywhere you can install Chrome.

However, if you're using 1Password for Mac or 1Password for Windows, you can still use 1Password X as long as your data is in a 1password.com account -- and now, 1Password X can interact with the local Windows or Mac 1Password app as well, (un)locking each other when you unlock one. This is very much a beta feature at present, and obviously this won't work if you're still using standalone vaults...but if you're using all-1Password.com accounts/vaults, it's pretty awesome. And in that situation, it could even replace the regular (desktop app required) extension (currently at 4.7.3.90).

Anyway, hope that answers your questions, but feel free to ask any follow-ups you might have, and let us know what you think re: 1Password X if you decide to give it a whirl!

I'm using Version 3.8.22 of 1Password on MacOS Mojave. I understand my version of 1Password is very old. Whenever I try to log in with my master password, the software crashes. How can I back up my data and upgrade to the latest version.

  • Welcome to the forum, @Alex_Etkin! I'm sorry for the trouble, but it sounds as if you're already aware what the origin of the problem is on this one: the age of the version you're using (combined with the new-ness of macOS version). We've actually got a great, step-by-step guide to upgrading from version 3; please follow those instructions and let us know how that goes for you!

  • Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately, following the guide is problematic. The first step in uninstalling the 1Password 3 extensions is to 'Open the 1Password 3 main app and unlock by entering your Master Password.'

    I'm unable to get into/unlock the 1Password 3 app. When I open the app and enter my Master Password, the app crashes. It won't unlock.

    Please let me know how I should proceed. Thank you.

  • @Alex_Etkin - yes, this has gotten more and more difficult as macOS has progressed and 1Password 3 for Mac has remained the same (first introduced in 2009, last meaningful update in 2012). If you can't even launch 1Password 3 for Mac, then just proceed to the next step, as there's no real way to extract any items which were saved in 1Password 3 for Mac's extension but not synced to the main app. I trust - especially if you haven't been able to use it for a while - that you don't have any of these at any rate. Go ahead with the rest of the steps and let us know how you get on.

  • I've downloaded a 'Read-Only' version. The File > Import selection is greyed out. Do I need to buy a new license for $49.99? Will my purchase allow me to choose File > Import and then import my saved passwords from 1Password 3?

  • @Alex_Etkin - I'm sorry for the delay in my reply here. Yes, to both: you'll need to purchase a new license for the new version (you can do that by clicking the Read Only link on any of your items, which will take you to the Purchase Options screen, where you can click the link to purchase a standalone license:
    Also: yes, that will then allow you to import your previous 1Password data. Let us know if you have any questions.
