Suggestion: Asking for the region, when creating 1Password account.

Hello people,

I have a suggestion for 1Password.com or rather for the interface when you create a 1Password account.

I noticed that you are not asked in which region the data should be stored. I just clicked on create account and didn't think about it.

I have a 1Password account in the United States, respectively at 1Password.com, even though I am in the EU.

I know that theoretically I could open a new account in 1Password.eu and migrate my data, but this is a big effort.

Wouldn't it be great if after choosing the type of account you are asked in which region you want to open the account?

By default, an account is always created in the United States (1Password.com).

I look forward to hearing your opinions on this.

Thanks for reading.

Have a nice day and stay healthy.

Mattis

  • Hi @Mattis!

    I think this would be perfect. When I started for the first time with 1Password I didn't know that there are more than one region available. I found out and switched to 1Password.eu. But I didn't have so many entries in my first vault, so it was no problem for me to switch. But for new customers actually coming from LP (or other password managers ;) ) it would be a super feature to ask for the region when creating an account. :+1:

  • Hi @DenalB!

    I really appreciate your opinion. I'm glad to hear you like my suggestion.

    When I started for the first time with 1Password I didn't know that there are more than one region available.

    That's exactly the same I thought.

    But I didn't have so many entries in my first vault, so it was no problem for me to switch.

    You are right, it is not that difficult to migrate the data, but because I use 1Password for families each family member would have to take these steps and on the new account enroll all devices, enable two-factor authentication, print a new emergency kit and so on.

    Have a great day. :)

    Ups, that sounds difficult to switch... I didn't think about a family membership. :'(

    Have a great day. :)

    You too! :+1:

    Don't worry, we can't think of everything all the time. If we did, we wouldn't be human. ;)

    You too! :+1:

    Thank you :)
