Primary (iCloud) vault can't be set to default

I'd like to use my Primary (iCloud) vault, but every time, I close or even leave the app, it changes back to use the Personal vault, which is synced with 1Password.


1Password Version: 7
Extension Version: 14.4.1
OS Version: Not Provided
Sync Type: iCloud

    Hi @syluccy!

    If you open 1Password Settings, did you set your Primary vault in the Always open to menu (it's the first one in the list)?

  • That's the only place, I could set Primary vault, other vaults are not even ticked, cause I don't want the app to search in other vaults, just the Primary. Where is this Always open to part?

    It is on the screen prior to that one. If you tap the "< Vaults" at the top left of the screen you should see it there. If you're elsewhere in the app you can find it by navigating to Settings > Vaults.


    That said, we strongly discourage such setups (a combination of legacy "standalone" vaults in addition to modern membership vaults) at this point. Our suggestion would be to migrate the contents of the Primary vault to the Personal vault in your membership, and delete the Primary vault:

    Move your existing 1Password data to a 1Password account

    Keeping the Primary vault around will almost certainly cause hangups in the future. I hope that helps!


  • Wow! You're the best!
