  • Hi @hwshi:

    I'm sorry to hear you were running into this as well and it's great to hear you were able to get it sorted. After you've successfully connected 1Password for Android to your Dropbox account, it's safe to reinstall Dropbox on your phone. Let us know if you run into any further trouble! :smile:

  • I was having exactly this issue with my new Pixel 6 phone that I received yesterday, and it was causing much frustration! Thanks to the OP, other posters and to Jack for providing the workaround. Tried it just now and it was a success, without having to go back in the Dropbox browser window.

    It appears that thiis is very common for Pixel 6 users, although not exclusively. Is it possible that the common factor with this issue is due to running on Android 12? Perhaps it has broken something with either the 1Password or Dropbox apps, or the linking between them?

  • I noticed the issue this morning on one (on AT&T), but strangely not both, of my Pixel 3as recently upgraded to Android 12 (so no, it's not a Pixel 6-specific issue). This may be because this particular phone got updated to Android 12...twice...sigh

    Anyhoo, by following the steps detailed in this thread, including peri's all-important "tap the back arrow on your device to go back to the 1Password screen" trick, I was able to get it going again. Of course, by initially disconnecting the 1Password for Android app, that caused my other Pixel 3a (on Verizon) to start acting up, too...rinse and repeat, and now both are back to normal.

    FWIW

    Hi @hwshi. I'm not clear as to whether you're still having trouble syncing or if you were able to get your data synced over. Do you have 1Password syncing at the moment?

    If not, please have a look at my comment above and let me know if that helps. You should be able to install Dropbox without any issues.

  • I followed Jack's directions but was unsuccessful ...I could not reopen 1Password for Android on my IMac after I disconnected it and do not know how to relink Dropbox using my web browser...so I am totally stuck...my old phone still had 1password but after disabling
    it on Dropbox, then it does not work at all.... this happened after I got a new Pixel phone.....any tips would help

    Didn't look at the whole 1Password changelog for Android to see if Dropbox support had been updated recently or not (don't use Dropbox) but I recall reading Dropbox made changes to how apps are authorized. This new method was supposed to be the only one available starting september 30th. Other apps were affected by authorization problems at some point and needed updates. It was announced in 2020 though.

  • My computer just got an update from 1Password and the update failed because it failed to find the version of the installed Password
    application....hope that is not because of disabling 1Password for Android on my computer....what do I need to do now ?

  • Hi @letsroll and @shengruoyu:

    Just to confirm, you're not having luck with these steps?

    1. Delete the Dropbox app from your phone.
    2. Go to the Dropbox website and disconnect the 1Password for Android app: Settings > Connected Apps > 1Password for Android > Disconnect
    3. Ensure that there's a spare device slot in your Dropbox account if you are using a free account: Settings > Security > Devices
    4. Re-open 1Password for Android, relink your Dropbox account using your web browser.
    5. After tapping Allow, do not exit Chrome or 1Password. Instead use the back button/gesture on your device to go back to the 1Password screen.

    If these steps aren't working, please email us at [email protected] with a link to this thread and more details, and we'll be able to investigate further.

    Additionally, @letsroll, while those issues aren't directly related, it sounds like we'll need to take a closer look at your setup to figure out what's going on. I'd like to ask you to create a diagnostics report from your Windows PC:

    Sending Diagnostics Reports (Windows)

    Attach the diagnostics to an email message addressed to [email protected].

    With your email please include:

  • In your step 4 above, when I went back to reopen 1password for android, it was gone and I could not find it
    so I stopped there...I also do not how to relink using the web browser.... if you want to do a diagnostic then
    you will have to send one for a Mac as I have a Mac computer where I use Chrome and an android phone
    Pixel 5a....

  • Hi @brian5542:

    I'm sorry you're running into trouble with getting 1Password working with Dropbox. In my numbered list of steps, on which step are you running into issues? Let me know, and I'll be happy to investigate further!

    Jack

  • Hello,

    the connetion with dropbox i have the same message error.
    The app was not correctly configured and cannot access your Dropbox

  • Glad I found this thread as the exact issue was happening to me (Pixel 2 to a Pixel 6 Pro). Deleting old devices from Dropbox, disconnecting old 1Password apps from Dropbox (I left the one active one from my Pixel 2 in case things went badly), and then getting stuck on the "Allow" page was frustrating. Switched back to the 1Password app a couple of times and it just launched an identical tab in Chrome with the same problem. However, a couple of times doing that and then the app seemed to find the vault and allow me to connect. Pretty serious issue for users!

  • Hello,

    i have also disconnecting old 1P in dropbox but don't work for me.
    Same issue forme.

  • I just got a new (2021) Sony Xperia 1 iii and I'm having the same problem. Went through all the recommendations on this thread and nothing worked. I'm wondering if its an Android 12 thing.

  • @Parker Daniels Could be, recent versions of Android became even more restrictive for apps and how they can handle data it seems. Also Dropbox did make some changes to their authorization mechanism.

    I faced it on Android 10 and another app that uses Dropbox, authorizing did nothing, you add to do some convoluted stuff involving what @peri said earlier there : https://1password.community/discussion/comment/618687/#Comment_618687.

    Ditched Dropbox now but yeah, not fun.
