App store vs 1Password store versions

steffisteffi Junior Member

I cannot remember the history as to why I seem to have both versions.

It's possible I upgraded the 1Password store version with an app store version and lost most of the functionality.

I just redownloaded the 7.7 pkg and reinstalled and I have the functionality back.

Can somebody please remind me of the differences between these versions.

I know I must have had a reason to buying the 1Password store version.

    The Mac App Store version of 1Password is a free "purchase" so that it can be tried by anyone, and so that people with 1Password memberships can use it without making a separate purchase. Only the website version of 1Password for Mac has a purchase option, and the App Store will not recognize purchases made elsewhere, so you would have been in read-only mode when using the Mac App Store version without a membership.

    What's strange about this then it why the Mac App Store version showed me an update was available because I don't believe I would have had any prior reason to download this from the App Store.

    The Mac App Store should only show updates for apps that were downloaded from there. Have you checked your previous purchase history?
