Do I need to create my own backup of my vaults? 1password.com

A couple months ago I switched from saving and syncing local vaults to 1password.com and it's been great. I've really enjoyed the simplicity of not worrying about syncing and updating vaults, it's worked seamlessly across all devices. Thanks!

But I do have 1 question, are people that use 1password.com for managing vaults saving backup local and/or offline backup vaults?

thank you,

    Hi @J_schwinn!

    Thank you for the kind words! I am happy to hear this :)

    If you have a 1Password membership, backups are taken automatically for you :) It's one additional thing that your 1Password account does for you, so you don't have to worry about that either.

    Thanks for the link, it appears that the KB article describes backups that are in the cloud. I assume that vaults are stored locally on devices as well. I'd have to stretch to dream up a situation where the 1P servers are down, and I somehow lose all of my devices and that point I might need an off-device/off-cloud backup. Is it possible that something could go wrong with 1P servers and disallow my devices from access? Honestly I don't know why I'd need to have an additional backup but I'm wondering if there are any users of 1Password.com storing additional local or offline backups beyond that which the service creates as part of the process?

    thanks again,

    @J_schwinn:

    No, because even if the 1Password servers went down, a copy of your data is cached locally on your device. You can test this by disconnecting your device from the internet completely, and you will see that you can still see your items in the app ;)
