Documents in 1P are stored unencrypted on hard drive

I have 1Pv6. I store documents such as a pdf of my passport in the Identities section. Using an app, I can search my hard drive and find the
passport pdf, unencrypted.

As a test, I created an image called MyImageABC, so I know I never had used that name before. I put it in my Identity as an Attachment, then deleted it. Using EasyFind, I can find it in .../private/var/folders/dg/n5z7w9wh8xn60w00r6bjcrv00000gn/T/com.agilebits.Attachments.noindex/C8BE7594-143F-4458-9105-37593884AA33. It is unencrypted.

This seems like a security risk. How can I change this such that the local version can not be accessed (unencrypted) except by 1Password?

Thank you.

1Password Version: 6.8.9
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: OS 11.1
Sync Type: iCloud

    When the document is accessed for viewing it is available at such a path. When you lock 1Password any unencrypted copies are removed. Here is a short recording of how the process works. If you would like you can replicate this on your device by locking 1Password. I am using 1Password 7 but the process should be very similar with 1Password 6.

    If this doesn't help or if you'd still like our security team to chime in please let me know and I'll ask them to reply with further. details

  • I tested, and you are correct. After locking 1P, the documents are no longer there. Thank you for your help, and keep up the great work!
