If you installed 1Password 6 or earlier from the Mac App Store
1Password 6 won’t automatically update to 1Password 7 if you installed it from the Mac App Store. 1Password 7 is available on the Mac App Store as a separate download. It requires a 1Password membership. If you want to purchase a license instead, install 1Password 7 from the 1Password website. Learn how to switch from the Mac App Store.
If 1Password stops syncing with Dropbox
When you open 1Password 7 the first time, it will convert older vaults to the newer OPVault format. Converting the vault will make a copy of it in a new location, and you’ll need to configure your other devices to sync with the new vault.
If you use 1Password 3 for Mac
You can upgrade to 1Password 7 directly from 1Password 4 or later. Learn how to upgrade from 1Password 3 for Mac.
