    Hi @Barney2,

    It sounds like you never added your account to 1Password 7 for Windows, that is why it is read-only now. Do you access your data via web interface on in the browser now? Please confirm.

    To add your account to 1Password 7, please do the following:

    1) Sign in to your account on in your browser.

    2) Click your name in the top right, select Get the Apps, and then click the blue button under step two that says "Already have the app? Add your account directly." Allow this link to open 1Password for Windows.

    3) That will fill all of your sign-in credentials in 1Password 7 for Windows, except your Master Password. Enter your Master Password, click Sign In.

    Let me know how it works for you after that. Thank you! :)
