I have a membership in 1Password, do I need to have iCloud store 1Password information?


I'm setting up iCloud on my Macbook and notice that it automatically has selected 1Password to be backed up to iCloud.
I know that my 1Password is backed up with 1Password on its servers.
I'm pretty sure I don't need or want my 1Password information also in iCloud.
I just wanted to make sure and see what your recommendations are.

I'm also wondering if with iCloud, my documents and files are saved on my computer as well as in iCloud?

Sorry the screenshot came out so large. I don't know how to shrink it for this.

Thank you.

1Password Version: 7.3.1
Extension Version:
OS Version: OS X 10.14.5
Sync Type: 1PW account
Referrer: forum-search:iCloud stores 1Password.

    Hi @gmj!

    Even if 1Password is selected in your screenshot, it doesn't mean that your 1Password data will be synced to iCloud (that's a separate sync setting). 1Password will save there just some configuration settings (for example, it will show you the list of all your accounts when you configure 1Password on a new device for your convenience).

    Other than this you are right: if you use 1Password.com, you do not need your data in iCloud :)
