1Password on Mastodon

Why has the 1Password app icon on my Mac turned all blue and how can I get the regular icon back?

Just before Christmas I installed a 1Password8 update (beta channel) on my MacBook Pro running Ventura. After the update I noticed that the App icon in /Applications and the Dock was now all blue. At first I assumed it was a deliberate change related to the festive season until I noticed that another Mac running the exact same version still had the normal icon.

I just updated to a newer beta version and the icon is still all blue. Why is this please and how can I get it to revert to the normal 1Password icon?

1Password Version: 8.10.0
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: macOS 13.1

    @ChrisJenkins The blue icon indicates that you are running the Beta. If you want the regular icon you will need to revert back to the Production release channel.

    Wonder why they made that change. Seems unnecessary. Ah well, I guess it is back to the production channel for me then.

    Hi @ChrisJenkins

    In November/December, we updated the icon of the beta version of 1Password to better distinguish it from the production version with the usual icon. We also updated the icon slightly around this time which is why we introduced this updated icon for the beta version of 1Password. @OAW is correct in saying that reverting back to the production release will bring back the regular icon.

    So I can have the (nice) regular icon and the production release, or the (horrid) beta icon and the beta release but not the nice icon with the beta release. I pretty much always run the beta release (so I can report issues more rapidly) but I really hate the all blue icon. Guess I will just revert to production then.

    Thank you for the feedback. Switching to the production version would indeed return the non-beta version icon to the app.

    Alternatively, macOS allows you to set a custom icon for your installed apps:

    1. Open your Applications folder.
    2. Right-click on the 1Password app.
    3. Click Get Info.
    4. Drag the icon that you'd like to see on top of the existing icon. You might need to enter your Mac admin password.
    5. Right-click on the 1Password icon in the menubar and click Quit.
    6. Re-open 1Password.

    The downside is that the custom icon will likely be undone with each update to the beta so switching to the production version is still the best option if you'd really like the non-beta icon. I've passed along a request on your behalf to the product team to include a way to change the icon from inside of the app in the future.
