Hello everybody, dear 1Password support,
bit of explanatin before my actual problem. TLDR: Bought v7 for Windows because v4 didn't work with Chrome extension anmyore.
What brings me here starts with the 1Password Browser Extension not working anymore with 1Password 4 on Windows. I do get that, since 1Password 4 is not updated anymore with new features and Google changing something on Chrome is not your fault. I valued using the Chrome extension very much and so I decided, to invest the money into the new version.
Since I like buying once and then owning the software (with full knowledge that I will only get updates for so long will most likely not be able to upgrade to the next main version), I decided to purchase the 1Password 7 standalone license for Windows for about 53 €.
Finding the way to purchase this license was not easy, and I know you do that on purpose to get people to monthly subscriptions. Still found it via posts in this forum. After the license was there the setup went fast and I was happy when my Chrome extenstion worked again.
So far, so good.
Only then did I start thinking about my two iOS devices which I would like to keep synced with my Windows desktops. Some forum searches later, I found out, WLAN sync, which I used before to sync between Windows and iOS is no longer available. I do understand both sides of the argument for and againt WLAN sync and even though I don't prefer it to WLAN sync, I would accept using a 1Password account and sync over your cloud.
So I setup a 1Password account and add it on my iPhone to the 1Password app (which I purchased for 10 € in 2017, I think). I now have basically pasted all items from my local vault on my iPhone, which I used to WLAN sync to my Windows desktop, to the "online" vault.
Then I went back to my local 1Password 7 installation on Windows to connect to that same account and basically do the same there and have all my data synced in your cloud and access from the clients on my several devices.
But I do not find any way to do this there.
So my questions now are:
1. By purchasing the v7 license for Windows, what can I really do there? I can't WLAN snyc anymore anywhere, but I also cannot access a vault in my 1Password account, is that correct? How would v7 sync with any other device? I really didn't see a feature available there. Please let me know if I was just blind and there is a simple solution for that.
Please advise how I can continue working with 1Password with this set of devices and licenses.
While being halfway through describing my issue, I had an idea which solved my problem, but I'm not quite ready to share it, because I want to know what 1Password can offer for my use case and also I think you would not much appreciate it.
So my issue is now basically only an enquiry about how to use the 1Password infrastructure and not keeping me from using 1Password.
Anyways, hoping to here from some expert and have a nice day.
