    A forum is not a chat. You are addressing AgileBits and your answer, when it comes, will be from a real person. Just probably not within four minutes.

    You don't HAVE to upgrade to 1PW5. You probably SHOULD, as it is a free upgrade, but it is your decision.

    As you have the Mac/Win bundle, you presumably bought direct from AgileBits. In that case, you should upgrade from AgileBits, as (due to restrictions by Apple) if you want the version from the App Store, you would have to purchase again.

    The only technical advantage of buying from the App Store is that it is the only way to use iCloud sync. But Dropbox sync is available in all versions, and has some advantages over iCloud.

    Hello @gpiaget,

    We've seen a large surge in queries over the last couple of days so it is taking time to get to everybody. We answer the questions from oldest to newest but one gotcha with forums is each time you post to a thread you knock it to the top of the list. Unfortunately top of the list is newest meaning it takes longer before we see the post.

    Now to your question. As danco has covered you already have a licence to run 1Password 5 for Mac as it was made free to all existing 1Password 4 for Mac customers. I'm not sure how applicable the Mac App Store aspect of your query is now given you don't need to purchase anything but for your edification we do have a page that talks about the differences, you can fine this page at Should I buy 1Password from the AgileBits Store or the Mac App Store?

    Does any of this help answer your query? If you still have questions or follow up ones please do let us know.
