Back in November 2019, I asked about moving from 1Password 6 to Family. At that time, I was worried about some user comments about problems migrating passwords over, so I decided to stick with version 6 for the whole family. I think it might be time to bite the bullet and make the move to the Family plan.
Background: I've been using 1Password since version 3.x. I have 4 family members, my wife, and 2 college-age kids. We all have MacBooks and iPhones. We all use 1P 6. We all use Dropbox to house our 1P key files. My wife and I share the same dropbox setup (to share all our passwords). My wife and son just got new MacBooks. In the past, normally on a new device, I installed dropbox, then 1P, and it would see the database and just set itself up. Today I noticed on my wife's new laptop, that she had a "trial" account.
Anyway, let me get to the point. I want to try out the Family plan, first for my wife and myself. Do I try the 14 day trial? Will it let me migrate my data from dropbox? Are the new passwords stored in the cloud? I'm pretty sure that I want to move to the Family plan. Should I just pay for it (skip the trial version)? Will that be easier and more full featured? Once I set myself up, will I just invite my wife? Will all our passwords be in the new environment? Next I will invite one son to join. Will it be smart enough to see his passwords in his drop box and migrate them to the account? What happens on his iPhone? Will he get the invite on all his devices? What about my other son on his new MB Pro, where he hasn't installed 1P yet? Does it prompt him to download and install 1P? Will we be getting 1P 7?
Sorry for all the questions, but I tend to over research things before making the move. I really want this new setup, but want to make sure all my old passwords, etc, are moved over. I use 1P for a ton of stuff (credit cars, secure notes, identities, passwords). Will they all get copied over?
One last wrinkle, I still have an old iMac running El Capitan. Will the Family plan work there? All our other macs are running High Sierra and my son's new one is on Big Sur. Will I have issues with our setup?
Thanks in advance!
