Can't create a vault other than on

I'm new to using 1password and have been surprised to find that I seem to be able to create a new vault only from the website, and not from within either the MacOS or iOS apps. Is this correct or am I missing something?

If it is correct is there a reason for it, security for example? Or is it something that will be added to the apps in time?

    Hi @zanthony,

    Thanks for writing in to ask about creating vaults! The ability to create account vaults from the apps is something we'd like to add, although I don't have a timeframe for when, or in what version. That would certainly be handy! For now though, you'll need to create new account vaults from

    If you have more questions or need anything else, be sure to let us know. Cheers! :)

  • Thanks for the quick response Drew_AG. Certainly seems like natural functionality, so hope to see it added soonish. Cheers!

    I can't promise it will be added soonish, but that doesn't mean it won't be - we simply don't have any timeframe for it right now. But you're right, it certainly seems like a natural feature to have in the app, and I'd also like to see it added.

    Have a great rest of the week! :)
