Do I need to upgrade my license to get 1Password 8?
According to Dave's email,
"Download 1Password 8 beta for Mac
1Password 8 will require a subscription to our 1Password membership and will rely exclusively on 1Password.com (or .ca or .eu).
If you are still using iCloud or Dropbox or WLAN Sync, now is a great time to migrate over your data so you’ll be ready for the new release. You can trade in your license for 50% off your first 3 years by launching 1Password 7 and clicking the upgrade link."
I have been using 1Pass since 2014. I think I got it from the App Store on my Mac. My version automatically updates every time a new version comes out. I'm confused about what I may have to do to get 1Pass 8 and continue receiving updates. I'm still using iCloud to sync, and I use the app on my Mac and iOS devices. I do not use 1Pass through my browser.
1Pass has worked great for me for seven years. It's easy to use, and I already have so many other technical things that I deal with daily that I am resistant to having to make a major change to my 1Pass system and learn it all over again. That's why I have stuck with using the apps and not the browser.
When Dave says 1Pass will rely exclusively on 1Password.com, does that mean we will have to change over to a membership, rely on the 1Pass servers and use only our browsers? If so, for me that will be like completely starting over again.
Please clarify this for me. It literally scares the heck out of me to think that I will have to relearn the basics of 1Password.
