Changing master password

I attempted to change my master password. The new password is stored in my vault but is invalid when I use it to log in. My old master password works for login, but I get a message that says my credentials are not recognized. The message includes my key information and has a space for the master password. When I enter either the old or new password, I get an "Invalid" message. Clicking a "Not Now" box clears the message box. What do I need to do to eliminate the message box?

    Hi @Hillds!

    I attempted to change my master password. The new password is stored in my vault but is invalid when I use it to log in.

    Is this happening in the 1Password for Mac app only? In other words, are you able to login using your new password on the 1Password.com website?

  • I am unable to log into the 1password.com website with either the old or new password.I only use 1Password on my Mac. I had it installed on my PC but had to wipe the hard drive due to having been hacked. I have not re-installed on the PC. The password change was attempted on the Mac.

    @Hillds:

    So it's possible that you are using a standalone vault in your 1Password for Mac app. The way 1Password unlocks is:

    • If a Primary vault exists, then it unlocks using the Master Password for that vault, regardless of what, if any, memberships are signed in
    • If a single 1Password membership is signed in, then it unlocks using the Master Password for that membership account
    • If multiple memberships are signed in, then it unlocks using the Master Password of the first added membership

    Since you are not able to login to 1Password.com with either password, I think you tried to change the password for your Primary vault, which is separate. I would like to ask you to generate a diagnostics report from your Mac and email it to us to [email protected], so we can take a look at your 1Password configuration.

    After you have sent the email, please feel free to post the ticket number you received so we can locate your message and connect it with this forum discussion.

    Looking forward to your message!

  • I have downloaded the zip file and run the diagnostics. However, when I try to attach the report to an email to [email protected] I get a message indicating the attachment does not fully load due to security reasons.
    Please advise how to send report.

    @Hillds:

    What email client are you using?

  • gmail

    @Hillds:

    I don't know of an official Gmail client for Mac, so I assume you are trying to send it via the Gmail Web app in a browser, right?

    Can you try sending it via Mail.app on your Mac directly? Google is blocking your attachment for some reason, I wonder if sending it via an actual email client on your machine would allow you to send it without problems.

  • I finally found the report and just sent it. Thanks for your patience.
