    Hi @petall,

    Thanks for reporting this.

    That sounds like you may have 1Password 6 or 7 installed, there is no UI/data in 1Password extension. In the other words, no extension updates can break the master password nor change the UI.

    However, the extension can connect to a different 1Password version. We did release a new version, 1Password 7 this week, which can take over the extension from 1Password 4.

    Can you go to your Control Panel > Uninstall a program to uninstall 1Password 6/7, reboot and now see if you're good to go?

  • Hi Mike

    yes, that worked. Many thanks

    You're welcome.

    By the way, we did release 1Password 7 for Windows this week that now supports standalone vaults and licenses like 1Password 4.
