Dropbox syncing iPhone to iPad

I am trying to set up my 1Password to sync to my computer from my iphone. Currently I have all of my 1Password data on my iPhone4. I am trying to set up the dropbox so that I can use it on my PC and also import it to my iPad. When I set up the dropbox on my iphone, I put in my master password and get me dropbox info entered, but it won't sync. I have selected for it to remember my master password so the auto sync will work, but on the screen, it tells me "Automatic Sync disabled." Even when I touch the Sync now button, it doesn't do anything. I don't get any message that is is sending data. When I go look in my 1Password on my PC (which is configured to use Dropbox), I don't see any data. Please HELP!!!

  • Never mind. I read some other posts and I figured out that i had reset my master password and that was a problem for others. I rebooted my iPhone and now it works!!!!

    Welcome to the forums, newbie 2011! Thanks for the update! I am glad it is working for you now. :)


    I don't blame you. You set up Dropbox sync and then forget about it for months. Meanwhile you change your Master Password and it doesn't even occur to you that this might kill the magic! Often sync issues can be resolved by going to Settings > Sync > Dropbox > Account. Just tap "Reset" and "Start over", and then set everything up again. It's just a good refresher to get things working after making some changes. :)
