When I choose "quit 1Password" from the Apple menu, then click the icon in the dock, 1Password opens

This means 1Password hasn't really quit, doesn't it?

1Password Version: 5.401

  • Hi @ericamon,

    When you say 1Password opens I assume you mean it opens the main window and your vault is unlocked?

    There is the main window which you see when you launch the application but there is also a helper processed we call 1Password mini that remains loaded at all times. It's what allows you to use 1Password inside your browser and all of the Auto-lock timers that can be configured from within the Security tab of 1Password's preferences.

    If you want your vault to lock every time you close the main window that's quite possible. One of the Auto-lock options is titled Lock when main window is closed and ticking the checkbox will achieve this.

    Does this help at all?

  • Brilliant! Thank you, that fixes it.
