No way to turn off beta builds?

Community Member

I decided to check out the macOS beta to see what feature changes might be coming, and discovered that I can't switch back to the stable version. The instructions for doing so on the website were as follows:
However, it is not possible to do so, because the checkbox for "Include beta builds" is disabled:

I guess my only recourse is to uninstall the beta, reinstall the stable version, and re-enter my credentials?

1Password Version: 7.2.5.BETA-0 (70205000)
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: macOS 10.14.2

  • @gedankenexperimenter,

    At this point you would simply need to drag the 1Password to the trash and install the stable version from

    There were no database schema changes so there should be no need to wipe everything out and re-sign-in.

  • I did remove the beta version and reinstall the stable version, at which point the Chrome extension stopped working until I also removed and reinstalled it.

    I do think it would be good to fix this bug (the disabled beta build checkbox) or update tte documentation to agree with the current behaviour.

  • @gedankenexperimenter,

    Thanks for the feedback, I let the documentation team know.

  • While I'm at it — the full title of this forum category is "1Password 6 Beta"…

  • @gedankenexperimenter,

    I don't see that here, "Mac Beta" is what I see. There is a sub-forum called 1Password 6 Beta that exists as an archival forum.

    Just follow the Mac Beta link (next to Topics in the top left of this page), and you'll see it:

    Yup, that's a sub-forum to the Mac Beta forum. This topic itself is in 'Mac Beta' and not 'Mac Beta/1Password 6 Beta'.

  • Oh, I see. I think the forum here seems so primitive to me that I assumed without realizing it that the structure was non-hierarchical, and therefore that was a heading for the content below, rather than a container. I stand corrected!
