Why is 1Password requiring me to sign into Apple every day?

Hey guys about two weeks ago I started getting a new window pop-up whenever I try to use 1Password. It takes me to an Apple page that reads: ******"Sign in to 1Password - Password Manager and Secure Wallet"******.
What's up with this and how do I stop it?
It's really annoying.

1Password Version: 1Password 6 Version 6.8.1 (681006) AgileBits Store
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: 10.12.6
Sync Type: icloud

    Hi there @lloydstein :)
    A couple of weeks ago, Apple, presumably for security purposes, changed their authentication window for iCloud to a much shorter timeframe, meaning you have to sign in a lot more frequently. A usual fix has been to check the "Keep me signed in" box that is below the Apple ID and Password boxes that are on that window that pops up. You will probably still have to sign in periodically, but it should greatly extend the amount of time between each instance.

    Hope that helps. :)

  • Got it. Thanks.

    My pleasure. Glad I could help. Let me know if that doesn't fix things. :)

    @lloydstein - @Corey_C's instructions should work fine for you, but you may have to do this one each Mac, if you have more than one. Just remember to keep checking the Keep me signed in box, and the timeout should switch to a much more-reasonable 30 days. :)
