1PW 6 on M1 Silicon

Hi, I am having issues getting 1Password 6 to operate correctly in Apple M1, MacbookAir Bir Sur 11.3.

When I try to open it, it just freezes upon hitting return after entering my master password. It does work through the Chrome browser extension, but this really reduces my functionality. Appreciate any help. Thanks.

    Hi @gbarton985

    1Password 6 was discontinued in 2018... a few years before anyone had heard of M1 or Big Sur. Unfortunately as such we're able to guarantee any sort of compatibility with it. The good news is that the current version of 1Password, v7, does support M1 and Big Sur. This version as well as any future versions are included with our 1Password membership service. You can read more about the benefits of membership here:

    Additionally we have a team of folks dedicated to helping those who are using older versions to make sure the transition goes smoothly. If you would like to chat with them I'd be happy to put you in touch. Please reach out to [email protected] via email. :)
