If I am a 1Password v6 license holder, what do I need to to do move to v7?

  1. Do I need to purchase a new license?
  2. Do I need to install v7 on the same computer as is running v6 and hope for a conversion of some sort to change my dropbox file from a "1Password.agilekeychain" file to "1Password.opvault" file?

    @pcgs51 - happy to help! :) There are currently two ways to use 1Password:

    With a 1Password account:

    • You sign up for an account at the main 1Password  sign-up page.
    • Your subscription includes the 1Password apps across all platforms, with all updates and upgrades for as long as your account is active.
    • Once you sign in to your account in 1Password on a new device, all of your data is instantly available - no need to set up third-party sync.

    As a standalone product:

    • You purchase licenses for each platform separately.
    • These licenses include all in-version updates, but a major version upgrade (such as 1Password 7) may require a paid upgrade.
    • You create local 1Password vaults, and if you like, choose how to sync your data. You can set up sync using a third party service (like Dropbox or iCloud.) If you do not set up sync, your data will remain only on your device.

    1Password accounts also include access to your data via a web browser, and per-item backups so you always have a safe copy of your data off of your devices, and can roll back to a previous version of an item if a change is accidentally made. Of the two, a 1Password account (membership) is the best way to use 1Password for most users.

    However, if you want to stick with a standalone license, we have those too. But I would recommend in that case that you use these instructions to convert your older Agile Keychain(s) to the newer OPVault format before you upgrade to 1Password 7 for Mac. Let us know how you get on! :)

    Thanks for the link Lars,

    FYI, I purchased 1Password in February of 2013 for my Mac. Does that qualify for a lifetime license?

    The instructions you sent tell me to update to the latest version of 1Password. However, I have opened my copy of 1Password v6 many times and checked for updates and am told my 1Password IS up-to-date.



    So given this situation, how do I update to v7?

    Thanks,
    Priscilla

    There is no such thing as a "lifetime license." Licenses for specific versions of 1Password for Mac never expire, so in that sense, they are "lifetime" - you can use them to download the version for which they were purchased (1Password 3 for Mac, 1Password 6 for Mac, etc), but that purchase only works for that version. What doesn't exist is any way to make a one-time purchase that gives you access to all future upgrades.

    I have opened my copy of 1Password v6 many times and checked for updates and am told my 1Password IS up-to-date.

    That's because it's checking for updates within version 6 -- like 6.8.8 to 6.8.9 or the like. And 6.8.9 IS the final update of version 6. What it doesn't check for (yet) is the presence of newer full version upgrades, such as version 7. But you can certainly download 1Password 7 for Mac from our downloads page and either sign up for a 1password.com membership or purchase an upgraded standalone license. Do you know which you'd prefer?
