Desktop App using 20% of CPU

Community Member

Over the past few days, I have noticed the desktop app using 20% of my CPU when it is running, it doesn't make a difference if the window is open or closed, only quitting the application reduces the CPU usage. I have version 8.7.1 on Production channel. Windows is up to date, and things were working last week.

I did disable the link between the Chrome extension and the app, which fixed that issue. But didn't seem to reduce CPU usage of the app. Could this be related to the certificate issue?

1Password Version: 8.7.1
Extension Version: 2.3.5
OS Version: Windows 10

    Hi @minamhere, thank you for this report - and I'm sorry about the CPU usage issue you've encountered.

    I'm not sure whether the certificate issue would produce the resource usage you've described, but it does sound like 1Password may be grinding its virtual gears on something. I'd be happy to investigate for you and shed some more light on this.

    To get that started, can you send a brief email to [email protected]? Here's some additional info we can use to expedite your issue:

    • A diagnostic report from the device where the issue is occurring. You can get this by going to (⋮) > Settings > Advanced > Send Diagnostics**.

    This will create a file on your desktop. Attach this to your email and we'll check it out. 👍

    • Include as well your forum username
    • And a link to this discussion

    With that in one place, we'll be well-positioned to dig in, learn what we can about this issue, and get back to you as soon as possible. I'll hope to see you over there! 👋

    I'm experiencing the same thing, 1Password started using an entire CPU core. I have sent in a support ticket with diagnostics, referenced this thread, and my forum username.
