Will I be able to make changes in 1PW 8 when not online?


I prefer to make changes to my passwords/records while off line, and then allow 1PW to sync later when I am on line. Since 1 Password 8 (electron) seems to need an active server connection to operate at all, will this still be possible when 1PW 8 is released?

Please put a list of 1PW 8 YouTube videos you think are the most informative somewhere in the community where it would be easy to find.

I plan on moving to 1PW8 as soon as it is out of Beta. I have trusted 1PW since before 2010, and see no reason to change.

1Password Version: 7
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: mac OS 10, mac OS 12

    Hi @Fort_Wayne_Frank:

    1Password 8 allows offline viewing and changes without a connection to the internet just like 1Password 7 does. If you've tried 1Password 8 Early Access, is that not the experience you've had? If you were having issues with 1Password 8 Early Access, we'd like to look into it further.

    Thank you for your response. No, I have not used 1Password 8 Early Access, I am seeking more information before I try it. I am going by what I've read that the construction of applications with "electron" is web-based and requires "an active server connection". I am hoping that the fact that 1Password 8 has been completely re-written and based upon a completely different architecture does not impact (very much) how I have used, and enjoyed using, 1Password previously.

    While yes, Electron does use web technologies, nothing about our use of Electron prohibits us from working with cached 1Password membership data while offline in the same manner 1Password 7 has always done.
