Efficient way to remove duplicate items?

I just moved all the items from my Primary Vault to my Private Vault under a family account. There were already many duplicate items in this vault, but many of these had updated passwords. What is the best way for me to remove duplicates, while keeping the updated items?

    Hi @tedavenport! Welcome to the forum!

    There were already many duplicate items in this vault, but many of these had updated passwords.

    So to understand completely: these were not duplicates, right? They were items that you let out of sync, rather than real duplicates with the exact same data.

    What is the best way for me to remove duplicates, while keeping the updated items?

    If you are on a Mac, you can use 1Password's duplicate removal tool that you find under the Help menu > Tools > Clean Up Duplicate Items. Note that this will only remove real duplicates though: if you had the same login with different passwords in multiple places, that is not a real duplicate, so 1Password will keep it to avoid data loss.

  • Thank you!!
