1Password 7.8.1

AgileBits has issued 1Password 7.8.1, a maintenance release with bug fixes and improvements for the password manager.

($64.99 standalone app from AgileBits or the Mac App Store or a $2.99- or $4.99-per-month subscription (TidBITS members setting up new accounts receive 6 months free), free update, 71.5 MB, release notes, macOS 10.13+)

  1. I can not find the standalone app on the App Store OR on the AgileBits website :frowning:

    According to

    “Mac users can still buy a single license for the 1Password standalone application for a one-time fee of $64.99, but this is not advertised. To purchase this version, you have to download 1Password 7 from the AgileBits website, then click “Need a license? We have those too” when prompted after opening the app for the first time. “

  3. Safari extension is broken. Nothing happens when I click on it. Does anyone know what to do?

  4. Ray

    Uninstall the extension, Safari Preferences / Extensions. Then reinstall it

  5. Try reinstalling the extension from the app…if that doesn’t work delete the extension in Safari and then reinstall it from 1Password.

  6. Hi.
    I tried that. It says I have to delete the entire 1Password app. That can’t be right, can it?

  7. Never mind. I restarted the entire system and now it works again.

  8. I’ve found the only way to consistently update 1P is to launch it and use its “Quit 1P completely” button to quit all parts of the app, then install the new version. This works perfectly as everything gets updated. Otherwise you get install errors or parts of the app don’t get updated and it only half-works.
