agile keychain still showing after conversion to OPvault as new default vault format for Dropbox

I tried to set OPVault as the new default vault format for Dropbox syncing following the steps outlined here:

I followed sets 1 through 3 (Note: I originally purchased via AgileBits store) yet when I turn Dropbox sync back on the vault still shows as 1Password.agilekeychain

Any guidance appreciated!

1Password Version: 5.4.1
Extension Version: 4.4.3
OS Version: 10.11.1
Sync Type: Dropbox

  • Hey @m8k! Could you try restarting your computer and performing the steps again? The Terminal command may not have went through properly if you're still seeing an Agile Keychain in your Dropbox account. Also make sure Dropbox is open and syncing. That can cause some issues. Let us know how it goes! :)

    Hi Penderworth,

    I did a clumsy yet effective workaround:

    1. On Mac (OS 10.11.1): Stopped Dropbox syncing then moved the old 1Password folder from Dropbox to my desktop.
    2. On my iPhone (iOS 9.1): in 1Password Pro 6 app I stopped Dropbox syncing. Deleted 1Password Pro 6 app from my iPhone.
    3. Shut down iPhone.
    4. Restarted Mac.
    5. On Mac: Ran Terminal commands for AgileBits purchase from
    6. Re-enabled Dropbox sync on Mac.
    7. Re-started Mac.
    8. On Mac: Re-synced 1Password to Dropbox, verifying both sync and OPVault format of new Dropbox vault.
    9. On iPhone I re-isnatlled 1Password Pro 6. Synced it to new OPVault in Dropbox. Verified.

    All seems fine now.;)

  • @m8k Glad to hear you were able to resolve this, despite having to do the workaround bit. I'll keep those steps in mind if someone else mentions this in the future — we definitely appreciate you sharing the process here so we can see what happened as well. If you do have any other questions, feel free to let us know. Enjoy 1Password! ;)
