Migrating standalone 1Password 6 vault to 1Password 8

Community Member

Hi All,

I have an old Mac with a standalone vault created under 1Password 6. I recently purchased a membership, and would like to migrate this data to my account. I upgraded from v6 to v8 on the old Mac, and I'm not seeing any of the options for migration shown on this page:

At the bottom it specifies to upgrade to v8 after migration under v7, but unfortunately I didn't see this until after I'd upgraded. Wondering if I need to uninstall v8 > install v7 > complete migration > reinstall v8, or if there's a simpler option.

I'll be happy to provide any additional information requested, and thanks in advance for any assistance.

    Missed the bit at the bottom there, but I'm running 1Password for Mac 8.7.3 on Mac Big Sur 11.6.7 in Chrome v103.0.5060.114 (Official Build) (x86_64)
