I have 1Password Mac and 1Password iOS Pro set to sync over WiFi. Lately, i've noticed that almost every time I launch 1Password on my iPhone, it gives me the message “Please unlock 1Password on your Mac for Wi-Fi syncing to continue. 1Password encountered a problem.” I understand this to occur if my mac is open and it's trying to sync and my vault is locked.
What I don't expect should happen is that I would get this message when my mac isn't even awake. I can be on a whole other floor of my house, with my MBP quietly taking a nap, lid closed, and 1Password iOS is telling me I have to unlock on my mac. To make it worse, this message will repeat about every 30-60 seconds. Like, it doesn't take the hint or it doesn't recognize that 1Password Mac isn't "live" at the moment.
I had seen where someone Tweeted at you with the same issue back in February, and that's about when it all started. Before then, I don't recall receiving that message unless my mac was awake, and I opened 1Password on my iPhone but my mac's vault was locked. This should be the expected behavior, right?
