    Hello @eingfoan,

    Thanks for reaching out to us about 1Password 8 on the Mac App Store.

    We’re glad you’re as excited about 1Password 8 for Mac as we are. At this time, it is not currently available in the Mac App Store; however, you can download the app directly through our site: https://1password.com/downloads.

    More options to help you deploy 1Password 8 to your team are coming soon, but I don't have an exact timeframe on when they will be available. If you'd like, I'll contact you by email so we can stay in touch and let you know when there is any news on the deployment front.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    Thank you,

    Hi @Scott.S_1P ,

    For me the only important thing would be: will it ever appear on AppStore? If yes my work is done if „no“ I have to automate deployment with current package.
    It would be great if you can answer yes or no. Timeframe to me is not important as long as 7 is maintained security wise.

    I'm curious why you guys aren't answering the question of whether 1P8 will ever be on MAS?

    Hi @kngspook,

    While I wish I could give you a definitive yes or no, the truth is that the decision hasn't been made. I can tell you that 1Password 8 is not currently on the Mac App Store, and that it hasn't been ruled out. "Never say never," right? Like Tommy mentioned, consider signing up for Updates about Mac App Store availability if it's important to you.

    I hope this information helps. Let me know if you have any questions about 1Password 8.

    Hmm, alright. Well, as you weigh your decision, let me just throw out two arguments in favor:
    1. Automatic updates are smoother though the MAS (and less invasive) than any other frameworks I've seen, and having the latest and most secure version of 1Password seems like a virtue.
    2. Being on the MAS evokes a feeling of trust -- that the app is containerized, not doing anything too sketchy, etc. That's why I found it alarming that you guys went from being on the MAS to not being on MAS. It made me wonder: "Are they doing something with 1P8 that isn't allowed by MAS? If so, what? Should I be worried that they're no longer MAS compliant?" And for the application I trust most with my life outside the operating system itself (maybe even more than the OS, given the documents I store in there?), that feeling of trust was held particularly tightly by me.

    @kngspook i can see your points and agree
    @Scott.S_1P for enterprises a rather yesish or a rather noish would also be ok. Whether to start packaging or not

    @Christian_XYZR, I don't have any additional information about our plans for the Mac App Store. It looks like you've seen the signup form for updates on this topic, so we'll be sure to send you an email when there is any news.
