    @mcg107: The 1Password app will only unlock using the Master Password for the first vault/account you have setup there. So if you've set things up differently on your iPhone than your other devices, you will need to enter the appropriate Master Password based on that. Otherwise it's just a matter of entering it exactly. It won't work otherwise, but you won't be penalized for trying multiple times. :)

  • Master Password is the same on all devices. It works on my other devices but not on my iMac. I am entering it correctly.

    @mcg107: If it's not working on your iMac, that's because it's either not the same there (you set it up differently), or it's just not being entered correctly.

    Do you have all of your data in 1Password on another device where you can access it? How are you syncing your data?

  • password is being entered correctly. and I don't know how I could have set it up differently. I just downloaded the app to my iMac, entered the secret key and then tried to enter the password.

    and yes I have all my 1Password data on my MacBook Air, iPad and iPhone.

    Are you able to log in at https://my.1password.com/ using the credentials you're trying to use in 1Password for Mac?

    If you check each of the devices that you can unlock do you see a vault called "Primary"?
