How to prevent 1P's icon from appearing in the Dock at startup

I'm running 1Password 7 Version 7.9.2 (70902004) from the Mac App Store on macOS Monterey 12.1.

Every time that my Mac starts up, 1P is launched and its icon shows up in the dock using up space in the recently used apps.

Screenshot: 1P icon showing in the Dock

It's a real nuisance to me and I couldn't find a setting to disable 1P to launch at startup as 1P doesn't even show up in my login items. I would just like 1P to launch in the background without having its icon populate the Dock.

I don't mind having 1P mini showing in the top menu bar, but I really don't need its icon systematically taking up space in the Dock.

Thank you.

    I am facing the same issue; it is irritating. There are other apps that launch at login and are added to the menu bar --such as CleanMyMac, AlDente, and OneDrive-- but do not appear and stay on the Dock.

    Hi folks,

    Our design team has done some brainstorming around this, though it doesn't look like we've yet landed anywhere solid. I'll be happy to add your thoughts on this to the conversation. :+1:

    Hi Ben, This sounds like it's going to take forever to resolve! Yet, please note that, in the mean time, it is really annoying. It's like being spammed every day! I'd appreciate if you would give us a reasonable resolution time frame. Thank you for your understanding.
