Transfer licensed 1Password to a new Mac

Hello, I am a long-time user of 1Password, I bought a stand alone license in November 2015 on my MacBook Air.

I recently bought a new MacBook Pro in 2021 and I would like to transfer my 1Password license from my old MacBook to my new one.

I first downloaded the app through App Store and found out that that version only supports monthly subscriptions. I deleted that version from my Mac.

Now I have downloaded the 1Password 7.7 from your website and installed it. All of my data instantly popped in from my iCloud, which is great, but I cannot use any of the features (add new passwords, use autofill in browsers etc.).

How can I transfer the already purchased license from my old MacBook to my new one?

Another info, on my old MacBook Air, the version of 1Password app is 6.8.8:

Thank you for your help in advance.


1Password Version: MacBookAir: 6.8.8 (688001); MacBook Pro: 7.7 (70700015)
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: MacBook Air: macOS Catalina 10.15.3; MacBook Pro: macOS Big Sur 11.1
Sync Type: iCloud

  • I think you have to buy a new license for 1P7. As I understand it, 1P7 is a not a free upgrade from earlier versions ; you have to purchase it (standalone or membership).

    Just download the latest version 6.8.9 from here and your license should work with this version on your new MacBook.

    As @sammy_j wrote you have to buy a new license for using 1Password 7 in standalone-mode. But there is also the possibility to switch to a membership. So you would be able to use any version of 1Password on all your devices. ;)

  • Thank you both @sammy_j and @DenalB for your answers.

    If that is so, I'll try an older version of 1Password, I think it should suffice my current needs.

  • You're very welcome @bacek! Glad that I could help. ;)

    If you need further assistance just come back here. :+1:

    To use 1Password 6.8.9 you would need to download 1Password from your purchase history if you previously used the Mac App Store version. 1Password 7 is indeed a membership or a license. I would recommend looking into one of our membership options. They are the best path forward with 1Password. Alternatively, licenses for 1Password 7 are available to purchase directly from within the app.

  • Thank you all for your answers. At the end I decided to but a new stand-alone licence for 1Password 7 and I must admit, I am very satisfied. It works flawlessly and the new user interface is a fresh redesign of an already awesome app. Keep up the good work guys.
