Get help

1Password 7 requires Windows 7 or later and Microsoft .NET 4.6.2 or later.

A license for 1Password 7 for Windows does not include a license for 1Password 7 for Mac or other versions of 1Password.

If 1Password stops syncing with Dropbox

When you import standalone vaults, 1Password will convert older ones to the newer OPVault format. Converting the vault will make a copy of it in the same folder, and you’ll need to configure your other devices to sync with the new vault.

If you see “1Password was unable to upgrade this vault”

If 1Password is unable to upgrade a standalone vault you’re trying to import, make sure that the vault is not empty and the password is correct.
