When can we expect local vault editing again?

I'm not a proponent of local only storage; I love the system provided as is for my personal data.

However I have various requirements at work that dictate in non-negotiable terms that password data must be kept locally.

As such I now have two vaults, an older local vault, which I can not add to or edit, with work data and a personal vault which I synchronize across various personal and professional devices.

I would very much like to know when I will be able to utilize my local vault in a more feature rich fashion. This is a serious use case for myself and I'm sure many many others as my province is enforcing these requirements through legislation.


1Password Version: 6
Extension Version: 3.359
OS Version: win7
Sync Type: local

  • pretty sure the answer is never... its not hard. They already had it working before.

    @claywd: If it wasn't hard, it would have been done already — by us collectively, or you or I could have done it ourselves in our spare time. ;)

    @Sidoen: I'm really sorry for the inconvenience. I'm in the same boat (though not for work reasons). Unfortunately I don't have good news in this area right now (for either of us...) regarding local vaults in the new 1Password 6 Windows desktop app. But I'll be happy to share the workaround I've been using in the mean time.

    For the most part I use 1Password 6, since it can read both 1Password.com accounts and local vaults. That way I can fill whatever I need in the browser and access all of my data in the main app. But when I need to make changes to my local vault, I just launch 1Password 4 to edit (I don't have this launch at startup or leave it running). If that sounds like it might be a useful workaround in your case, just shoot us an email at [email protected] with a link to this discussion, and post your Support ID here so we can help.

  • Presumably the support id will be emailed back to me?

  • Ah here we go.

  • Does this require any other steps than to disable the startup of the 1Password 4 and the background service to get it to work?

    You do not have any timeline on the local vaults feature on 1Password 6 ?

    @hAmpzter: Hello there! Thank you for chipping in! :+1:

    If you want to use a local vault at the moment, you should download 1Password 4. Here is the direct download link.

    1Password 6 for Windows is focused on our 1Password accounts for the time being and we don't have any timeframe for the local vaults support. If there is anything else we can help you with, please let us know. Thanks!

    Cheers,
    Greg

  • @Greg I have the exact same problem (IT prohibits cloud storage on servers not owned by the company). Can I still buy a licence for 1 Password 4 for Windows? I only have macOS standalone licences so far.
