    Hi @olivboots

    I'd be happy to help. When syncing via iCloud 1Password uses Apple's 'CloudKit' technology to store its database. It doesn't use the file based iCloud Drive. As such I'm not sure I follow what you're saying here:

    Could you please elaborate on what it is you're seeing / how you came to that conclusion? Thanks!

  • Hello,
    Well, when i try to manage the Icloud memory via my Iphone there is two lines for "1Password - Password Manager".
    One is 24.9 Mo and the second 17.1 Mo.
    Thanks

    @olivboots:

    If I understand what you are saying, you are looking inside iCloud Drive, correct? As Ben explained, 1Password uses Apple's 'CloudKit' technology to store its database. It doesn't use the file based iCloud Drive.

    What do you see inside 1Password > Settings > Sync instead? Are both your devices using iCloud to sync there?

  • Hello,
    I'm not looking at the icloud drive. When you ask to manage wich app can use icloud, the system show some details about the use of each app. !

    When i go to the 1password settings, i see that it use icloud to sync (both ipad and iphone). I tried to stop sync on the ipad and then set it up again. It says it sync but the result is the same.
