Too many requests. You have been temporarily limited.

I saw a lot of discussion here from 2016 and looks like that issues was solved. But today I faced this issue again with my 1Password X on Chrome 79.0.3945.130 and on my mobile device that tells about failed synchronization.

Can’t sign in.
Too many requests. You have been temporarily limited — please try again later.

It's bad and unacceptable to be limited to access own and urgent information like this.

    Hi @alex_rn! I definitely understand your concern. The rate limiter is in place to protect you, but our intention is never to lock you out of your account. Out of curiosity, did you happen to have an MFA failure prior to running into the error?

    I'm also wondering how things are working now for you. Are you able to sign into your account at

  • Hi @kaitlyn
    I'm not sure if there was 2fa failures, just didn't pay attention to it. I able to access my accounts after several hours and the issue doesn't repeat. Now all works just fine.

    If i understand correctly, limits is set if several 2fa failures?

    I'm glad to hear that things are working well now, @alex_rn. Multiple MFA failures in a short period of time may trigger that. It's something that we'll be able to reset for you if need be, though.

  • That's sounds healthy. Thank you.

    Anytime! Feel free to reach back out if you run into the issue again. Just a heads up, though. In order for us to do anything account specific, we'd need to chat via email rather than the public forum. So if you were to need your account unlocked, for example, you'd want to contact us at [email protected] instead. If you have other questions, then feel free to ask them in the forum! :)
