Why can we not have an explicit statement about 1Password being a subscription-only service?
I would like to congratulate the team on the release today. As anticipated and appreciated it is very much the same as the Linux app. Having a variety of elements work differently based on operating system has long been a bane for 1Password users.
Aside from that I have criticism to offer which I hope you are open to. I wrote this in December 2020
The writing has been on the wall for years. AgileBits no longer has interest in standalone vaults, licenses, iCloud, Dropbox, or anything other than memberships.
Another six months has passed. AgileBits continues to erode licenses and standalone vaults as evidenced with today's beta for Windows. Yet there has been no announcement or public statement to this effect from the company, other than the coy "membership is the way forward" comments we see touted around this board. I would like to see AgileBits make a clear and concise statement that anything other than 1Password.com is effectively "dead and gone".
I am not unhappy with the direction the company is taking. My only wish is for clarity so that informed decisions can be made. Much frustration that I see as I browse these forums could be avoided if only the company were to be sincere in this regard. I am excited for you to launch this same app on macOS and mobile. As someone who uses a wide variety of devices in my work it will be such a relief to have the same 1Password experience wherever I end up.
