[Feature Request] Login Sync Between App and Extension

The browser extension requires the desktop app, right?

I feel like if I log into either the browser extension or the browser app, it should automatically unlock the other one as well. Right now, I have to login twice (once in my browser and once on my desktop app), which is time consuming and annoying.

Could the 1password team consider this?

    @netname: Thanks for getting in touch! And sorry for the confusion. Totally our fault, but in time things will be simplified. :)

    The desktop browser extension requires 1Password for Mac or 1Password for Windows. But 1Password X does not; it runs entirely within the browser, which is handy for situations where people can't or won't install the desktop apps.

    It isn't something that's possible now, but definitely something we're looking into adding in the future. In the mean time, as they say, "There's an app for that!" — just install the desktop extension if you want it to integrate with the native apps. Cheers! :)
