1password isn't working. I hit the icon on my mac, it takes me to a Welcome to 1Password.

I hit the 1password icon on my mac, it takes me to a Welcome to 1Password screen to find or set up new. I've been using 1password for several years and all my data is there.

    Hi @rwuerch,

    I'm sorry 1Password is suddenly acting strangely! I'm sure we can help get this all sorted out. First, we'll just need to know a few more details:

    • What version of Mac OS X are you running?
    • What version of the 1Password app is installed on your Mac?
    • Are you using the AgileBits Store version or the Mac App Store version of 1Password?
    • What/where is the 1Password icon you're trying to open? (For example: the 1Password app icon in the Applications folder, a 1Password shortcut in the Dock, the 1Password extension icon in the toolbar of your web browser, the 1Password mini icon in your Mac's menubar, or something else?)
    • Is the "Welcome to 1Password" screen a page that opens in your web browser, or is it opening its own window in the 1Password app?
    • When did this problem start to happen? Did you recently install an update for 1Password or upgrade to a new version? Did you update your Mac? Or something else that seemed to trigger the problem?
    • Do you use Dropbox, iCloud, or Wi-Fi sync in 1Password?

    Once we know some more details, we should have a better idea of how to get things back to normal again. Thanks! :)

  • Thanks Drew.

    • I'm running 1Password 5 for Mac (I upgraded/purchased it last year)
    • I can't get into 1Password to see whats running because when I click on the icon on my mac the Welcome to 1Password screen appears.
    • I'm not which version is running
    • I'm trying to open 1Password from the 1Password app icon in the launch folder. I've tried to also open from the Applications folder and the same screen
    • The "Welcome to 1Password" screen is opening its own window
    • It started happening this weekend and I haven't done anything that I know. Possibly I updated my mac and haven't tried to open 1Password directly. I still have the 1password box on status bar so its still been asking for my login there.
    • I don't use dropbox, iCloud or wifi sync in 1password.

    I appreciate the help.

    @rwuerch: I'm sorry for the trouble! That's pretty strange. Do you perhaps have "cleaner" software running on your Mac that may have done something on its own?

    I think at this point it would be helpful to see a diagnostic report:
