Does the browser extension require the app?

Coming from LastPass, evaluating 1password for Families.

Can I user 1password in the browser, autofill, autosave, without having the application also installed?

i.e. I'm using a work computer and rather not install the app if possible, for the occasional personal use.

    Hi @Endicot - It's great to hear you're giving 1Password Families a test drive. Great question! 1Password has to be installed in order for the browser extension to function properly since the extension communicates with the main app. If you're using 1Password at work, you can always log into the web app and access your data from there. :+1: Let us know if you have any additional questions. We're here and happy to help out.
