This is my comment from a discussion going on in the Windows thread. I wanted to try to get more eyes on this issue in the hopes that other users care about this issue and can perhaps make sure that AgileBits can see that there are enough users that care about a standalone version and local vaults.
I am a 1Password user on macOS and iOS. I consider myself a more advanced user. I have no desire to have my password sensitive data stored on any cloud service (even if it is encrypted). If the cloud service is successfully attacked, then the attacker now has his/her hands on all your user's vaults. Again I know these are encrypted, but now your cloud service is an attack vector that might have flaws (humans develop the software of course) that make all your customers vulnerable to have heir keychains/vaults stolen. I would prefer to keep my keychain/vaults locally on my own machine (that might be completely offline).
As a1Password user, it looks like the writing is on the wall and you are moving away from local keychains/vaults. I hope that you guys will change your mind (or the path it looks like you are going down). If not I will also have to find another password manager (or perhaps develop my own). I would prefer to continue using 1Password. You guys currently make a great tool and it would be a shame to alienate part of your user base (especially ones who have helped evangelize your product over the years). Thanks for "listening."
