After adding a family membership - I now have two instances of each password

I'm an old 1Password users (I think since version 5). I have a vault on Dropbox.
I created a family subscription and (I guess?) migrated the Dropbox vault.
Now, I have two instances of each account. I guess I need to delete the Dropbox vault? But I'm scared :).
Is this actually what I need to do?

1Password Version: Not Provided
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: Not Provided
Sync Type: Not Provided

    Hi @Yogevs

    Thanks for taking the time to write in. I can understand the hesitation. I'd be happy to help you through how to do this safely. The first thing I would recommend would be verifying that you can sign in at in your web browser and from there you are able to see all of your data. If you can this tells us the migration was successful and Dropbox is no longer needed. In that case, we can proceed. If that does not happen as expected please stop here and write back. :)

    Once we know your data has been migrated we can remove the Dropbox vault from the app(s). Instructions for that can be found here:

    Please note that this doesn't actually delete any data from Dropbox, it just removes it from 1Password. After you've done that, if you're satisfied that everything is working, you can delete the sync file (.agilekeychain / .opvault) from Dropbox.


    P.S. If you haven't already I would highly recommend printing a copy of your Emergency Kit. :+1:

  • Would it make sense to leave the file on Dropbox for backup?

    Probably not much, since it would not contain all the changes from today forward. It would be easier to use the item history feature if you need to revert an item to a previous version:
