How to enable dark mode?

I just downloaded the latest 1Password 7 beta and the release notes mention the following:

IMPROVEMENTS

  • The new detail view looks significantly better in dark mode.

I searched through all of the setting within 1Password but couldn't find any mention of a dark mode.... how do you enable that? Is it automatic?

Thanks!


1Password Version: 7.0 b5
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: OS X 10.11.5
Sync Type: 1Password Account

    Hey @andrewlumley! Sorry about the confusion. Dark mode is a macOS feature that you can enable in System Preferences:

    1. Choose  > System Preferences, then click General.
    2. Select “Use dark menu bar and Dock.”

    Hope that helps!

  • Understood. Thanks for the clarification.

    Does that mean its a bug if 1Password 7 isn't displaying a dark theme when Dark Mode is enabled in macOS?

    @nxc,

    No, we have not yet adopted Mojave dark mode throughout the app at this time.

  • is this still the case for the main app?
    The mini app looks really nice in dark mode.

    @pfp,

    Yes, this is still the case. Mojave support is coming in a release after 1Password 7.1.

  • Err...1Password like the only app I use daily that doesn't support this. Not very agile...just saying

    @tylerkessler: What are you talking about? We've had support for Mojave dark appearance since the developer beta.

    My apologies @brenty, glad to hear and thought it was uncharacteristic of your amazing dev team!

    Before I said this crass comment 😅, I checked for updates in the menu bar and it says "Thank you for running the latest version of 1Password!" yet no dark mode UI.

    After further investigation, I do have an older version running 6.8.9 (689001)....with "Include beta builds" checked. Could this be a bug in the update checker?

    Either way, I'll manually update it via download, but before I do that would you like me to provide any additional details or log files to figure out why the updater isn't working correctly?

    About My Install:
    1Password 6
    Version 6.8.9 (689001)
    AgileBits Store

    About My Mac:
    macOS Mojave 10.14

    @tylerkessler,

    Its not a bug in the update checker. 1Password 7 isn't a free update for 1Password 6, so unless you had a subscription account in your copy of 1Password 6 it wouldn't present 7 as an update for you.

    Ahh, I’m a dummy. Gotcha. I’ll just leave now with my tail between my legs. Lol. Thanks for the info @rudy

    @tylerkessler: Hey, I'm sorry for the confusion there. We just don't want people upgrading accidentally to only then find they have to pay. You can find more information on 1Password 7 in the announcements detailing what's new:

    And we're here if you have any other questions. Cheers! :)

    I get it. Just a complete oversight by me.

    I understand that it's not easy converting the business model from local data management to cloud based subscriptions, so much nuance in both security and revenue model with stubborn legacy users like myself.

    As a long-time non-subscription customer and user, I don't read the newsletters/blogs/marketing closely and have been consciously rejecting the sign-in cloud account services (and sales copy, etc.) for a while now in a personal attempt to not centralizing all my passwords and master vault/client password on the same host provider. For better or worse, it was my own personal security policy.

    But! I gave in and updated my mindset around this and changed how my 1Password data is managed...damn you dark mode! 😛

    From a design perspective, I recommend adding an additional sales call to action / value proposition interstitial pop-up to previous versions exactly when users click "check for updates" manually like I did on clients running version 6.X

    Contextually, it would be an amazing time to understand paid subscriptions and list of value props for users like me who have been avoiding this change to how our vault data is managed and secured. Value Props like dark mode (which I know is like soooo stupidly cosmetic for a data security software/services company, lol, but it's what converted me to a subscriber), etc.

    I think more importantly, it would have avoided this confusion on my end, and wouldn't feel spammy at all, just a gentle reminder to consider the subscriptions again since I can't have my dark mode update.

    Separately, I'm happy to give you my money as a subscription to support on-going development, my hesitation to convert was always about me wanting to have more control by de-centralizing my most sensitive data.

    Just my two cents, thanks again @rudy and @brenty.

    Thanks for deleting my well-thought out comment. Maybe Dark Mode isn't worth centralizing my most sensitive data after all.

    @tylerkessler: I don't even know what's happening. Can you clarify?

  • I can relate. Have a nice day.

    @tylerkessler,

    Your long comment shows up here, it probably got trapped in the moderation queue of the forum software due to its length.

    Can 1Password
    Version 6.8.8 (688001)
    Mac App Store operate in dark mode?

    I am running mojave on my MBP in dark mode already > just 1password is not dark and beautiful like everything else.

    thx!

    @netparadigms,

    Nope, 1Password 6 won't be receiving dark mode support.

    1Password 7.2 is the first version to support macOS Mojave's Dark Mode.

  • ok thanks > I am guessing that I have to start paying repeatedly to upgrade instead of the 1 Password 6 one time Apple App Store fee that I paid for 1Pass6? Is that correct and could you also explain the upgrade steps?

    Thank you for feedback, wisdom, and steps.

    @netparadigms: This guide will take you through upgrading to the new version:

    And if you have any questions along the way, we're here for you. :)

  • Hi Brenty and Rudy > thanks for your help - where is the 1 time (not repeating billing) 1Password 7 upgrade price from 1Password 6?

    Thanks, can't find it anywhere on your site or on the OSX app store, all I can find is upgrading to monthly payments... not interested in paying monthly.

    Thanks much team!

    You can purchase a 1Password 7 license within the 1Password 7 for Mac application when downloaded from our website.

  • Hi Ben > how? All I see are the paying ongoing monthly choices... what am I missing? https://1password.com/sign-up/
