Do I need to sign up for a membership to use the App now? I'm getting bombarded with pop ups every time I log into something.

1Password has NEVER been free, so I don't know how you've managed to use it.
It used to be on a licence. Subscription (membership) is now the recommended form of purchase, but licences are still available if you get 1PW from the web site, not from the App Store.
The last time I looked, https://support.1password.com/why-membership/ gives the reasons why users may prefer a sub rather than a licence.
Hi @stevenrradtke! Welcome to the forum!
Indeed, as danco said, 1Password has never been free. We have offered some free upgrades in the past though, so perhaps that's what you were referring to. 1Password 7 was a paid upgrade however, so if you installed 1Password 7 without purchasing a license or a subscription, the app will be read only. If you create a 1Password membership and add it to the app, you will activate it and remove the reminders
@ag_ana Thank you, Sorry, I misspoke. I'm sure I paid for 1P back in the day. Just haven't paid anything since. And yes, I seem to have mistakenly clicked upgrade and now I'm in DO YOU WANT TO BUY???-mode.
Thank you for the confirmation. 1Password 7 is a paid upgrade, so if you don't want to upgrade at the moment, please make sure you download the previous version you purchased, and use that instead. You can download older versions of 1Password from our downloads page, at the bottom of the page.
@ag_ana I guess I don't understand what I need to do if I want a subscription. I already have a login and Master Password I've been using. Do I "Set up a New Account"?? It wants me to set up a new password.
Yes, if you want to create a 1Password account, you need to sign up for one. You can do that on our website, or even directly inside the app if you prefer.
Your new account will be separate from what you have been using so far, but you are free to use the same Master Password you have been using until now if it's a strong one, and you prefer to keep it
@ag_ana Thanks you for your reply .... So, to clarify, if I set up a new account It will import all my existing passwords for various sites?
That's correct. You can see the instructions to migrate your existing data in this support article:
@ag_ana Thanks! You're the best!
You are welcome @stevenrradtke! And thank you for the kind words
If you have any other questions, please feel free to reach out anytime.
Have a wonderful day :)
@ag_ana Last question ... I see 2 vaults now. Do I delete the ON MY MAC one?!
Yes, if you have already migrated everything (and you see everything if you login to your new account on 1Password.com, for confirmation), we recommend removing the old Primary vault so you don't have duplicates, and it doesn't cause confusion in the future
