New Computer. Can I use the same License?

I have a stand alone license which I purchased in Nov. 2015. I use it on my laptop and phone with no trouble. It is 1Password 6 and says "Thankyou for running the latest version of 1Password" when I check for updates. I just got a new laptop and am keeping the old one. I have downloaded the app from the Apple Store to my new laptop but it only offered 1 Passord 7. Nw when I try to use 1Password extension in safari it tells me I have to buy a license or get a membership? Am I supposed to get a license for each computer I own? If not, what do I need to do to use one password on multiple computers? Is it because of the different versions of the app that I am having this issue?

1Password Version: 6.8.9
Extension Version: 4.7.3
OS Version: Mojave 10.14.2
Sync Type: iCloud

    Basically, if you don't want to pay again (either a subscription or a new licence) you have to stay with 1PW6. This is fine short-term, but as 1PW6 is no longer having any development, you should plan to move to 1PW7 at some point.

    The way the App Store works is that in the main store you will only see the latest version of an app (so 1PW7 - by the way, 1PW7 from the App Store is subscription only, but if you get it direct from AgileBits you can buy a licence). However, 1PW6 (and other apps) should still be available from the Purchases item of you App Store account.

    Once you have 1PW6 the same licence can be used - indeed with any luck the licence will get installed automatically.

  • Hello @VitaP,

    @danco is correct, if you purchased the license for 1Password 6 you will have to install 1Password 6 on the new computer as well. You can download 1Password 6 from our downloads page:

    You'll find it in the legacy downloads section at the bottom of the page.

    As long as your new computer is also an Apple device then your license should work.

    Please let us know if you have any questions or need any help along the way.

  • Thanks @jin_dhaliwal and @danco
    What is the diff between 1PW6 and 1PW7?
    Can 1PW6 be upgraded to 1PW7?

  • You can definitely upgrade to 1Password 7, but you will need to purchase a new license for 1Password 7 or subscribe to a membership.

    You can find out more about the upgrade to 1Password 7 for Mac here:

    I would also suggest you check out this page about memberships and what they include:
