The application “1Password” is not open anymore.

Every time I restart my computer, 1Password does not open when clicking on the Application icon on the Dock and Applications folder. I receive this error when my MacBook has been on for a long time.

Here is the error: "The application “1Password” is not open anymore."

I have the most recent version of 1Password:

I have to shut down 1Password using "Activity Monitor" every time.

I can see on multiple forums (including this one) that this is a common problem.

Is this bug going to be fixed?

1Password Version: 7.9.2
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: MacOS Monterey 12.1

    Sounds good @ShaneKeller, thank you!

  • hi - is there any update to this issue?

    keep having to reinstall 1Password for it to open - same issue as the original poster.


  • Hello there, I'm having exactly the same problem as OP. Quiting in Activity Monitor works well. 1Pass (7.9.2) has been installed from App Store, MBP 16" M1 with macOS 12.1. I didn't have this problem on previous MBP 16" 2019.

    Hi @jacks and @jirsbek 👋


    While we investigate this issue further, here is our suggested workaround:

    1. In the Finder, click Go menu > Utilities.
    2. Open Activity Monitor and click the CPU tab.
    3. Search for "1Password"
    4. Select all matching processes with ⌘–A or Edit menu > Select All.
    5. Click the 🛑 force quit button in the toolbar and Force Quit.
    6. When all processes disappear, reopen 1Password normally.

    I hope that helps!


    Thanks for letting us know. As of this writing, we do not have any updates regarding the issue, but as you've mentioned, quitting in Activity Monitor will work and is currently our suggested workaround.

  • This issue is still happening for me. Hoping for an update to the app soon.

    Hi @ShaneKeller 👋

    My apologies for the ongoing issue. We've had some users report that using the beta version of the 1Password for Mac app helped resolve the issue. If you're able to, can you try updating to our latest beta version to see if that helps?

    Install a beta release of the 1Password app

  • @Alvin.L_1P I will give the beta a try and let you know. Thank you for the suggestion!

    That's great news! Thanks so much for the update @ShaneKeller

  • @jack.platten & @Alvin.L_1P -- The 7.9.3 Beta still does not solve the issue:

    Hey @ShaneKeller:

    Thanks for the update, and I'm sorry you're still running into issues here. We're still working on getting to the bottom of this, so for the meantime, the workaround provided above by Alvin would be your best bet.


  • You'll have to add me to the "I also have this problem" list. The workaround of force quitting from the Activity Monitor works for now.
    I'm using a 2016 15" MBP with macOS 12.1

    Hi @BrianinPNW:

    Thanks for letting us know. As Alvin mentioned, using the beta version of 1Password might improve your state of play: Use 1Password beta releases
