Chrome Extension Won't Install

Trying to install the 1password extension for Chrome. It seems to install fine but when I click on the icon I get an external protocol request which tells me I need version 4 of 1password. I have version 6. Can you help?

1Password Version: 6
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: 10.10.5
Sync Type: iCloud
Referrer: kb:undefined, kb-search:can't install chrome extension


  • Hi @loulesko,

    What you're describing sounds awfully like something like a proxy or equivalent is interfering with the communication between the extension and 1Password mini.

    Do you happen to use any of the following?

    • Anti-virus software.
    • Third party firewall software.
    • An ad-blocker that you install such as GlimmerBlocker or Freedom.
    • Parental control software.
    • Any active proxy service.
    • Any active VPN service.

    If need be we'll review a diagnostic report too but we may be able to bypass requesting one based on what we learn from the above list.

    Hi there @littlebobbytables my friends computer was indeed running anti-virus software. Everything is working perfectly now.
    Thank you for your help.
