helper not found [1Password app needs to be installed along with extension]

I have a new HP laptop from my company. I installed the browser extension for Safari but I keep getting "
Looking for the 1Password helper
The 1Password helper must be running for the extension to work properly."
Do you have to have 1P software on the computer as well to use the extension?

    @SeattleMadrona: Yes. The browser extensions are only there to facilitate login filling in the browser itself. The 1Password Helper is the real 'brains' behind everything, managing your vault.

    While you may be able to access your 1Password data using 1PasswordAnywhere, you'll get a much better experience by installing the 1Password app itself. I hope this helps! :)
