    Are wallet items encrypted in dropbox?

    That is a good question, dougiedd!

    The Cloud Storage Security section in 1Password's User Guide explains this pretty well:

    The information which 1Password keeps decrypted in your data is very similar to what you may have in a browser bookmarks file. In addition to the location and title are tags, Folder, password strength, creation time, and last modify time. Any of the fields that can be used for sorting or arranging the display of your items in the 1Password app are not encrypted. Everything else is.

    All username and password data along with Login fields, notes, wallet data, etc. are always encrypted. Offhand, I can't think of anything besides what is listed in the View > Columns menu that is unencrypted.

    The list in that menu is as follows.

    • Icon
    • Title
    • Location
    • Type
    • Modified Date
    • Created Date
    • Folder
    • Password Strength
    • Tag

    I hope that helps. Please let us know if you have any other questions. We are always available to answer them. :-)

    Cheers!
