I had a massive stroke 1/7/2016. On my ICU bed after regaining consciousness, I told my daughter “meh” m-e-h is my crypt password. She was then able to keep my life going while I was recovering. Then it happened. I bought a new Mac. I got 1Password from the App store and it didn’t work with my crypt! Holy crap!! NOW what can I do? I’m no longer as smart as I once was and I simply can’t figure out what to do..... There’s this “master p/w” thing and a secret key that is so long I have to keep it in my sock drawer. Worse yet, it says it’s gonna “upgrade” my crypt!!! So what do I do? Cry. Then PANIC!!!!! I have a BSCS 1980 UW Madison and 35 years as a Software Developer b4 I retired in 2015 so I’ve seen some [removed by 1Password staff per forum guidelines] and I feared a busted crypt was about to replicate across all my devices. Disconnect all syncing, run from device to device to disconnect syncing all the while realizing that 1Password is dead to me after it promised I could install it on as many Macs as I want, that was a lie. It was nice while it lasted. My MacBook Air is on its last legs but I can’t get a new one or I’d have no crypt on it. What good is a Mac w/ no crypt? Can I please just buy 1Password 6 for Mac? I’ve had it and its predecessors since 2014 and always kept versions up to date but now I’m stuck with no way out. I think the IOS version still works so I’ve considered just switching to iPads only. But I’m stuck now with a MacBook Pro that can’t have a crypt so I don’t use it even though my poor old eyes really need the Retina screen. I’ve also got 2 iMacs that can’t have crypts so I need to remember to keep my iPhone close by if I need a password. Thank god 1Password worked when I got the new iPhone X. . It’s only out of respect for the good your company has been to me that I’m posting here in a last ditch hope a solution can be found rather than retype everything into what? Keepass? Oh, and I’m now paralyzed on one side and can no longer touch type. Yes, I learned typing in high school, my dad said I had to “in case computers didn’t catch on”, this was the late ‘70’s after all. I tried going to the support page but to log in I need that secret key from my sock drawer so I gave up. 1Password used to make my life so much easier but now it’s impossible to use. Oh and now I’m crying again out of frustration and despair. Catch 22, find your emergency trouble kit or else you can’t get help. Oh and if you try to get help on your old Air it does a 301 moved permanently BTW, I’m a Certified Usability Analyst, and 1Password is now officially “user hostile” in my book. So that’s my use case. Is there any way out? Or should I give up and start retyping everything? Shoot, I don’t want to. I even have old PCs with crypts on them come to think of it. Maybe I can do something useful on those..... Right now my task is to figure out how to either print the crypt or export it to something useful, like a csv for transfer to something new. Hopefully I can do that without needing help or it’s back to the sock drawer for me. IMHO the biggest mistake you made was trying to allow web access to crypts instead of just the physical devices I authorize which let me get away with a weak af password all that time since there are no hackers or thieves with physical access to my devices or my apple id/icloud or my dropbox. What’s my best way out of this crisis? Sorry if this is too honest and blunt but the part of my brain that softened up my descriptions died in the stroke. The only thing worse than a stroke is coming out of it with your crypt as crippled as your body without the intellectual capacity to fix it when you need it most. Oh, and I’m hoping someone here can take pity on me and help me figure out what to do since I’m lost without my crypt and honestly see no way out, there’s no “export all” option, just “create backup”. Maybe I gotta try hacking a binary dump of it... Don’t laugh, I used to read octal dumps for a living back in the 80’s. If developers still had to write their own overlays there would be tighter code......
Tldr; Old lady needs help with 1Password V7 for Mac in the worst way. Pretty Please?
