1Password 7 or 1Password X ?

I have just upgraded from a licensed 1P 6 to a 1P 7 Family subscription. I was trying to find out how to adjust password length (for those sites that don't allow 20 digits - quite common) and the forums kept mentioning 1P X ?! What is the difference ?

    1Password 7 is the Mac app. 1Password X is our newest generation browser extension. 1Password can function without 1Password 7 being installed. I am a heavy Mac user and prefer to have both in use. You can find out more about 1Password X with this link. https://support.1password.com/getting-started-1password-x/

    If you do not use 1Password X, you would to use one of our other extensions commonly referred to as companion app extensions or sometimes simply extension. https://support.1password.com/1password-extension/

  • If I decide to add 1Password X along side of my existing 1Password 7 For Families subscription (Mac), do I need to uninstall the old extensions for each browser, or will the 1Password X extension take care of that? I still want to keep 1Password 7 app on my computers.

    Also, does the menu bar 1Password come from the desktop app or the extension?

    It looks like 1Password X is maybe easier or more reliable than the old extensions. So I'd like to give it a try.

    You will have to uninstall the old extension from your browsers if you want to remove it completely from there.

    It comes from the desktop app.
