1Password 8 and Apple App Store
I realize that this is an old topic but I ran into the issue today:
Got a new MacBook and setting it up. One of the first things: 1Password! Open App Store, type in 1Password, yep there is it is, install. Done. You want to enable Safari extension. Yes!
A while later 1Password tells me: You want to upgrade to 1Password 8 via download?
Me??? I just installed it how can there be an update? Google. Result something about version 8 not being in the App Store, one liners, no real explanation but ok. Go ahead, download and upgrade ...
Hhm, things getting weird ... two 1Password Apps but seems the same vault? But 1Password in Safari only works when the 1Password 7 App is unlocked.
Googling, searching, reading forum articles here ... apparently 1 Password 7 came with the extension build in, for 1 Password 8 you have to download "1Password for Safari".
Download extension, install, remove the old one, remove old 1 Password 7 App, etc ...
Hhm, what I thought takes me 10 min, installing 1Password, ended up to be about 2 hours of digging around to find out what's going on. Very annoying and unnecessary.
Why is 1 Password 7 still in the App Store and hasn't been removed to avoid this?
