    Hi Eric,

    Thanks for taking the time to write in.

    The first thing I'd recommend doing is backing up your 1Password data on your iPad:

    1Password backups

    Then I'd suggest reviewing this guide:

    If you forgot your Master Password or you can't unlock 1Password

    I hope that helps!


  • Hi Ben
    First I did not forget my Master Password
    Now I saved a backup file on my PC with ITunes and IPad
    Then I deleted the 1Password App of my IPhone, turned off the iPhone, downloaded the App, open it with my Password account, downloaded the backup with iTunes on the iPhone, restaured the backup in the app, result OK, closed the app, try to open the app with my Password... it still refuse my password !..

    @EricChirossel: Then it sounds like the issue is specific to your iPhone. Definitely try the suggestions in the guide Ben linked, as they may help even if you haven't "forgotten" your master password but are simply having trouble entering it (the "or you can't unlock 1Password" part).

    If you're still having the same issue, it would help to have some basic information about your setup which you left out of your original post:

    1Password Version: Not Provided

    OS Version: Not Provided

    For example, it may be that you have a different vault on the iPhone than your'e using on the iPad, which need different Master Passwords to decrypt. Let me know what you find!

  • Hi
    I changed my master password, it's ok for iPad but still not working for iPhone
    I suppose Now I have to make a new backup with the IPad on iTunes and then install this Backup on the iPhone with iTunes, Right ?
    Before, Do I have to crash the 1Password app of iPhone and reinstall it to install the backup ?

    1Password Version: 6.5.4
    Extension Version: Pro ? Yes I bought it
    OS Version: 10.3.1 (14E304) on the two devices
    Sync Type: iCloud

    For information I have a freeze message for a few month, I just tried the 1Password app on Pc but didn't keep it because I do not need it and I don't know why It' frozen, even if I can always create login, notes, etc...

    Thanks for your help Ben

    Here is what I'd recommend doing:

    1. Uninstalling 1Password from your iPhone
    2. Turning off iCloud sync on the iPad: 1Password > Settings > Sync > iCloud > Disable Sync
    3. Deleting the 1Password data from iCloud using the iPad: 1Password > Settings > Advanced. Scroll down and tap Erase iCloud Data.
    4. Re-enable iCloud sync on the iPad:
    5. Reinstall 1Password on the iPhone and sync it with iCloud

    Please let me know how it turns out.

    I did all, when I arrive at "We found your vault stored in iCloud"
    Enter Master Password
    Incorrect password
    I can use login to enter but no Sync in the settings and if I close the app, it recognizes the Master Password to open.
    Now I need to synchronize my data and can you delete this freeze message or tell me what I have done wrong...

    @EricChirossel: Where do you have all of your 1Password data currently? It sounds like you may just need to clear the data in iCloud and then sync that there instead. Let me know!

  • I have my data on iPad

    Great. Then please follow these instructions carefully again:

    If you follow the instructions carefully and completely they will guide you through removing your data from iCloud and then putting the data that is on the iPad there for the iPhone to access.

    When I have that screen on iPhone, I clic iCloud Right ?

    Then I have that one when I put my Master Password
    Also I cannot sign in my 1Password login on iPhone like I do on iPad on this forum (Password incorrect)

    Hi @EricChirossel,

    As long as you've followed the rest of Ben's steps up to that point, then yes, you'll want to choose iCloud from the 'Welcome' screen. After following the other steps, the data in iCloud should be a brand new copy of the vault on your iPad, so the same master password will work to sync it with your iPhone.

  • I resync in sync service iCloud on IPad but it does not work with the same master password on iPhone ...?
    Do I must delate the vault on iPad ?

    @EricChirossel: Yep! Tap Advanced there, and then scroll down and tap Erase iCloud Data. :)

    And after deleting iCloud data, I resync iCloud iPad and go on iPhone, I tap iCloud in 1Password, it find my new vault stored but not accept my master password
    I did do that many time
    Sorry but do I must tap delete vault, I did not do that

    No, you should've tapped "Erase iCloud Data" but not "Delete Vault."

    Could you please send us a mini diagnostic report from the iPad? You can use this link to do so:

    Please let me know when you've sent the report.
