Enable 1password in Safari prompt box


Every time I log into my user on mac, I get a little box in top right corner saying Enable 1Password in safari with close or enable buttons.

Odd thing is that its already enabled in Safari as I can use it still if I just leave the prompt alone.

Any ideas why its asking me this?

Regards and Happy New Year

    @telUK: Happy New Year to you as well! Can you tell me which versions of macOS, Safari, and 1Password you have installed?

    EDIT: I found the other thread discussing this, sorry... didn't show up on my first search. I'll follow that thread!

    @brenty I'm not sure if this has already been addressed or added to known issues, but I'm having the same issue as telUK, each time I switch users on my Mac. (I have personal and work log-ins on my home mac.) Every time I switch users, I get a popup message requesting me to "Enable 1Password in Safari" etc.
    MacOS Mojave 10.14.3
    Safari 12.0.3
    1Password 7.2.4


  • Hello @Regent12,

    It used to be users would see the errant message when starting up Safari and we did correct that one, what we didn't realise was a similar scenario was found with fast user switching and that issue is still present in 1Password 7.2.4. I don't know when the next update to 1Password for Mac will be but my hope is it will contain the fix for this. I apologise for the incorrect nagging 1Password is doing in the meanwhile.

  • @littlebobbytables, thanks for the update!

    Hi there @Regent12 , I can confirm that this fix has been merged and will appear in 7.2.5 when it ships. Have a good one!
