How do I use my license from Win for the Mac version?

Community Member

I have two laptops, one is a MacBook Pro and one is Windows based. I purchased a license last night for the upgrade to 1Password 7 on Windows. I am trying to use my same license for my MacBookPro but I can't seem to do it. I tried clicking on the email on my Mac but noticed it is marked "win" at the end of the license file. How do I use the license I purchased for my MacBook Pro? Am I forced to pay another $50 for a Mac license? I would have purchased for both computers at a discounted rate but that was not offered. Thanks for helping.

1Password Version: 7.0.2
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: OS X 10.13.4
Sync Type: dropbox

    You are indeed if you want standalone licences, although you'll probably experience something of a push from AgileBits towards the subscription service which includes use of all of the apps.

    Hi folks,

    A Windows license cannot be used on 1Password for Mac. It would require a separate 1Password for Mac license, or a 1Password membership (which as Stephen mentioned includes access to all of our 1Password apps).
