add keychain with itunes

Is it possible (or desirable) to use iTunes to load a keychain into 1Password on an iOS device?
1Password is listed in the iTunes apps display as having "files". Could I load the keychain from ~/Library/Application Support/1Password as an alternative to WiFi sync?
My thinking is that it is a direct connection to my Mac - not reliant on WiFi or iCloud.

1Password Version: 6.3.1
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: 10.11.6
Sync Type: iTunes

    Hi @Jim611,

    Thanks for taking the time to write in!

    We do not currently support syncing via a cable. You can read about the currently available sync options here:

    Sync your 1Password data

    The reason 1Password shows up in iTunes is for backups:

    I hope that helps!


  • Thanks for the clarification. I wondered why 1Password is listed as an app with files in iTunes.

    Hi @Jim611

    On behalf of Ben, you're welcome! As he mentioned, the files are backups for your data :chuffed:
