How to configure 1Password notifications on your Android phone or Mac

You can change your notification preferences for 1Password at any time. Learn more about notifications and how to use them.

On your Mac, 1Password will notify you when:

  • a new update is available
  • there is an issue syncing that requires your attention

To open Notifications preferences, choose Apple () menu > System Preferences, then click Notifications. Select 1Password 7 or 1Password Updater on the left, then view or change the settings on the right.

Notification preferences

On Android, 1Password will let you know when syncing completes with a pop-up notification. To disable this:

  1. Open and unlock 1Password.
  2. Tap Settings > Sync.
  3. Tap to turn off Notifications.

Successful sync notifications are automatically dismissed after 8 seconds. If there was an error during sync, the notification will remain in the notification area. To disable this:

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Tap Apps > 1Password.
  3. Tap to turn off “Show notifications”.

That will disable both the pop-ups and the sync errors in the notification area.
