I am using 1Password standalone 126.96.36.1996 and am slowly upgrading my computer systems; one part of that will be 1Password, but for now I use 188.8.131.526 with a Dropbox sync between iPhone and four computers, and it works well.
My Dropbox vaults are stored on each Windows PC in the Dropbox folder locally, which then gets sync'd to the web. The data magically gets accessed via Dropbox from any of my other devices, which also use the same Dropbox account. Everything works perfectly!
However, I am wondering if it is possible for unencrypted data (ie: passwords) or an unencrypted file to end up sync'd to Dropbox, and hence onto the Web. For example, when I open 1Password and decrypt a password, does 1Password do it in computer memory so that the decrypted password never gets stored to disk or sync'd to Dropbox on the Internet? I'm guessing that's how it works, but is there any possibility that something unencrypted might get sync'd to my Dropbox account on the web? I'm just nervous about computer security and things I can't see! Does anyone know how the process works, and how safe it is?
