Dear 1Password Support Team,
As far as I understand the coming release of 1Password 8 will (sadly) only support cloud vaults, and will also only be offered as a monthly subscription. After considering the pros and cons I came to the conclusion, that I don't want to upgrade to 1Password 8 and, as long as it's technically possible, would like to stay on version 7.x.x. At least until I find a new application to manage my passwords locally.
I currently have three local vaults which I occassionally sync over Wifi from my Mac to my iPhone and iPad. I also use the (legacy) Firefox Add-On to access my passwords. On iPhone and iPad I use the password fill-in feature (not the new extension).
Since the annoucement of the transition I have been increasingly worried that my setup might stop working once 1Password 8 is released on Mac and on iOS. I would therefore appreciate if you could explain what your plans are for license holders of 1Password 7. Please also explain if there are any steps I need to take to prevent an automatic upgrade.
1Password Version: 7.9.1
Extension Version: 188.8.131.52
OS Version: macOS 11.16.1
