Sync solutions since Dropbox free account is evolving

Does 1password teams have planned a backup solutions available on all platforms (Windows, Mac, iOS and Android) to swtich from Dropbox ?

In fact Dropbox is now limiting the number of devices connected. As I'm only using Dropbox for 1password (I'm using OneDrive for all my stuff), I don't want to pay a monthly subscription to sync my vaults. For now there is no issue as all my devices are linked, but if I'm changing my phone I'll have an issue.

Thanks & Regards

    Hi @GeraldGuyot! Welcome to the forum!

    Does 1password teams have planned a backup solutions available on all platforms (Windows, Mac, iOS and Android) to swtich from Dropbox ?

    Yes, we have our own sync method without any sort of limitations already :)

    We built exactly to avoid having to rely on a third-party service to sync your data. Our own sync service does not have any limitations whatsoever, and is therefore the best method available to sync your data. does not limit us and our 1Password Membership customers when it comes to how many devices they are using and is therefore already our recommended option.

    I hope you understand that we are not able to control changes third party providers decide to implement, and therefore prefer (and owe it to our customers) to controls things directly to offer the best possible service without relying on anyone else.

    Not to mention, sync is not the only benefit of a 1Password Membership: everything is included with memberships. All the devices you need are included for free, sync happens automatically, backups are taken care of straight away, everything you would expect is there. You get storage for secured documents, item history, watchtower, travel mode, ease of sharing with your family, team or business should you want to upgrade from an individuals membership later on... The list goes on and on.

    I hope this helps! If you have any other questions, please feel free to reach out anytime.

    Have a wonderful day :)

  • I totally understand that you're not accountable of cloud providers policy enhancements. But on the other side, the solution to avoid buying a monthly subscription to Dropbox is to buy a monthly subscription to 1Password.

    I bought 1password through permanent licence (Windows, Mac and iOS) in order to avoid another subscription.

    I'll look for another solution.

    Thanks for the quick response and your help.

    @GeraldGuyot, you are very welcome! Remember that you always have the option to use just 3 devices if you don't want to pay for a subscription to either Dropbox or 1Password. You can also decide not to sync your data at all, if you want to continue using 1Password despite the limitations imposed by Dropbox.

    If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to get back to me anytime, I will be happy to help you.

    Have a wonderful day!

  • @ag_ana May you provide me more details about the 3 free devices ? I certainly missed this point as I don't remember seen something about it. It won't satisfy my need (4 devices), but perhaps I can try tp limit to 3.

    Thanks & Regards

    @GeraldGuyot, Dropbox now limits free users to 3 devices, as you correctly mentioned in your original post:

    I hope this helps!

  • @ag_ana, I thought you were saying that there is a solution for 3 devices into the 1password subscription ;)

    Thanks for your time

    1Password membership (which does not use Dropbox or other 3rd party sync solution) does not have a device limit. I'd highly recommend checking it out.
