I bought 1 password for IOS ...am I required to rebuy for Andriod and other devices?

Community Member

I want to access by password repository on Andriod but it asks me to re-buy for $9.99. Will I also have to pay to access from my PC? This can get expensive.

  • Hi @michaelmatatia. 1Password 4 for Android is free to install through Google Play, and is free to use indefinitely as a reader app. This means that you can sync, view, and fill your data on Android without purchasing the Premium features on that platform. However, if you'd like to add or edit items on Android, you'll need to unlock the Premium features.

    We charge per platform to keep costs down. If we offered a universal license, we would have to charge a lot more, because we still have to support development costs of each platform. This way, our customers can pay just for the versions that they need. As well, we offer bundles whenever possible, for a reduced cost, such as in the case of OS X + Windows, and we will certainly consider expanding this to other platforms in the future.

    With that being said, unfortunately because of how the Play Store is designed, we are not able to bundle the premium features on Android with 1Password on other platforms. The in-app purchase is handled directly through the Play Store and is linked to your Google account.

    I hope that clarifies things a bit. Please let me know if you have any other questions. :)
