I imagine a reasonable number of 1P users are in a similar situation as myself and so solving this problem would do more than just solve my own frustrations!
I work in a corporate bank where access to third party tools and websites is monitored and restricted. For good reason, access to file sharing services like Dropbox is outlawed, and I'd be fired even if I did manage to find a way around the issue, though being within the bank's network support function, I don't really think there is. Access to most download sites is blocked, though I can actually download the 1P exe. Trouble is I'd need admin elevation to be able to install it, and if I did, I still wouldn't be able to sync with Dropbox.
I am a good use case of someone who needs access to an offline (read-only if needs be, probably preferred) instance of my 1Password data. 1Password Anywhere doesn't seem to work here either (I did manage to get a copy of my keychain folder smuggled in) and doesn't really seem like a long-term, supported solution.
It's a great frustration for me not to be able to have access to my password vault whilst at work. Had I the ability to do so I would create a work vault to avoid my using the systematic approach to creating work related passwords that I currently take. Unfortunately single-sign-on is not yet so single, though this is by far one of the better places I have worked for the fewest number of accounts needed.
Is anyone else in the same position? Anyone in support of this as an idea? It really just needs to be a 'portable' version of the distribution which can pick straight up from a copy of the keychain folder and run with it.
Help! I'm so pleased I at least now have large type to help me (beta user) see the passwords to be able to transcribe them, though every time I need to enter my Amazon password manually I die a little bit inside.
