1password7 with wlan only

I want to use 1password7 only with WLAN syncing. Does a subscription support this, or is my only option buying a license?

    Hi @bpourkazemi!

    While we do not recommend this for most users, you can keep your data locally and sync via WLAN even with a subscription. You would miss out on all the features that 1Password.com vaults offer (such as Item History and Travel Mode, for example), but you are in control of your data, so you can certainly do this if you want.

  • Thanks ag_ana! How do I enable WLAN syncing? Wasn't able to find it from the settings.

    @bpourkazemi Here is our support article on how to enable WLAN sync.

    I hope this helps!

  • Thanks again! I don't see the option but I think that's because I started paying for a subscription. If I cancel my subscription will I be able to access the WLAN feature without getting locked out? I want to be extra careful to not get locked out :)

    @bpourkazemi Even if you have a subscription, you can still keep vaults locally if you prefer. You probably just have that option disabled at the moment. Can you please open 1Password and go to Preferences > Advanced, and make sure that the option named "Allow creation of vaults outside of 1Password accounts" is enabled?

    This option will create a local Primary vault, for which you can then enable WLAN sync :)

  • Thanks! Can you confirm that disables online sync?
