Restoring 1Password 6 license after time machine backup restore (only have 1password 7 in app store)

I've been looking on the support forum for answers and elsewhere on the internet, but not sure how to resolve my scenario.

I am using the standalone version of 1password as an existing user. Have been most recently using 1 password 6. I purchased through the app store a few years back (I have also sent an email to your support address where I attached the original receipt).

Recently I purchased a new MacBook and restored everything onto it from my time machine backup. 1 password 6 however is saying that my trial has expired and I don't know how to restore the license on the new MacBook.

Because it was purchased in app store, I have looked to reinstall it from the app store - but I can only find 1 password 7 and not 1 password 6. How can I get 1password 6 back?


1Password Version: 6.8.9
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: 10.14.6
Sync Type: Not Provided

    You should be able to get 1PW6 from the Purchased tab of the App Store.

    @Kevinw: Indeed, if you purchased 1Password 6 through the Mac App Store, you just need to install it from your Apple ID's purchase history:

    I hope this helps. Be sure to let me know if you have any other questions! :)

  • Thanks for the replies. All resolved now. Downloading it from the app store has fixed it.

    The reason I posted above was that I couldn't actually seem to find it in the app store purchases tab - only 1pw7 was there (I may have tried to install it at some point). However, today I have installed Mojave and I easily found both 1pw6 and 1pw7 in the new version of the app store.

    You're welcome! Thanks for the update. Glad that did the trick. Honestly, you're quicker than me, because I haven't quite figured out the new App Store yet. Cheers! :lol:
