    @Fard: With App Store apps (on both macOS and iOS) there is no separate login process for iCloud; it's handled by at the system level by the OS. But with the AgileBits Store version, since it is not an App Store app, it cannot use this and you need to authenticate separately. You're getting this message because your authentication token is expired. When logging in again, if you check the box that says roughly "keep me signed in", you won't have to do this as often. If you don't check it, you'll need to login at least every day. I hope this helps. Be sure to let me know if you have any other questions! :)

  • I am having this same problem - I've been using 1Password for a while now and haven't had to do this. It seems to have started with the last update. It would be great to be able to go back to the way it was before so I don't have to keep logging in.

    Maybe you are right,but I hadn't this problem,I use 1password since version 2,this problem is new I think 4 to 6 months ago.

    @Fard and @lml424 - it's not the update to 1Password, it's that Apple has changed (tightened) the security surrounding iCloud authentication. They're now requiring it every 8 hours unless you check the box marked Keep me signed in. Try that, and check to see if that takes care of the issue.
