have no idea how to get iphone synched with macbook

I have a macbook in which I can see a personal and primary vault. My iphone can only see the primary account and I can see no way of adding a personal vault.

I've seriously no idea what the difference is and how to get the iphone and macbook looking at the same vault.

I also am weirded out by why this isn't brain dead simple.

    Hi @shavas

    It sounds like you were previously using a standalone setup (no 1Password membership), which is where the Primary vault comes from, and then migrated to a membership (which is where the Personal vault comes from). Please log in at https://my.1password.com/ in a web browser and make sure all of your recent changes appear in the Personal vault there (e.g. there is nothing in Primary that isn't in Personal). If that is the case... the migration guide includes instructions on signing into your membership account on each device and then removing the Primary vault. It sounds like you may have missed that step:


    Please note that the Primary vault should be deleted from every device.


  • When I go to settings/vault/primary there is no delete option.

    @shavas: have you added your 1Password account to the app already? Are you able to remove the Primary vault afterwards?
