Everything worked fine until I updated my master key : the 1Password Android app requested an account details update... and at the "connection" step it goes into an "infinite loading loop" after complaining that "1Password cannot work without Google Play services" (which it does, because it did work since I initialized my account more than a year ago and util TODAY when I needed to update my master key)
In the end I tried :
I used the 1Password Android app for more than a year WITHOUT ANY ISSUE, and NO Google Play services.
I have Samsung SM-G960F phone on which Google Play services are a NO-GO for security reasons.
Note that I apply all updates required by the 1Password Android app published on Google Play, even if I don't have Google Play SERVICES installed.
I'm really p***** off right now because it seems that the missing Google Play services WERE NOT REQUIRED AT ALL (it worked like a charm), and now just because people need to scan QR codes it locks out people not using Google Play services ?
I can assure you, many apps that claim "not to work without Google Play services" actually work after complaining, only the impacted features do not, say, QR code reading.
I can assure that all users not using Google Play services can ignore the missing QR code feature and would rather enter the master key by hand that install Google Play services... this dependancy is completely overkill and makes me think of moving away from 1Password just because of this...
I have no use of 1Password if I can't use it on my phone, and PLEASE do not suggest using my phone browser to access 1Password (as I read on a reddit post answered by a 1P employee), are you aware of the browser being the #1 vector of vulnerabilities and attacks ?
I understand that QR code reading is an awsome feature, but it should not BLOCK the connection process...
What could help me would be to provide a specific "version code" I could manually download from the play store, that does NOT contain the google play service update, although it is not certain that the missing Google Play services caused the infinite loading loop.
Current version code is 70704002 (for v7.7.4)
I chose 1Password for very specific reasons :
