Not able to download 1password6 safari extension from website

Hi, I followed the links to download the extension here but I don't see a button or link to actually download the extension. Is this a bug?

  • Hi @hitokirikensan,

    What version of macOS and Safari are you using? They could be part of the explanation so we'll know better once you let us know :smile:

  • I'm on Mac OS 10.15 Beta (19A501i), Safari Version 13.0 (15608.

    Thanks for that information @hitokirikensan. The 1Password 6 extension is not compatible with Safari 13. Safari 13 requires 1Password 7. You can read more about this here:

    1Password 6 for Mac won't fill or save in Safari 13 or later

    I hope that helps. Should you have any other questions or concerns, please feel free to ask.


  • Thanks for the info @Ben! Quick question that I wasn't able to find a clear answer on. I paid for the full 1Password version before the subscription model kicked in. Is that moot now so if I want continued support I need to pay for 1Password 7?

    1Password 7 requires either a separate license purchase or a 1Password membership. We're no longer advertising licenses, but they are available for customers who are already familiar with that situation and are comfortable with the "DIY" approach they offer. I'd highly recommend taking a look at 1Password membership, which will give you access to the latest versions of 1Password for all of your compatible devices (no more separate upgrade fees). You can read about the benefits here:

    About 1Password membership

    If you decide to upgrade to membership instructions for that can be found here:

    Move your existing 1Password data to a 1Password account

    If you'd like to discuss any particulars of your individual situation I'd recommend reaching out to our sales team at [email protected] with the details. If you'd prefer a license they are available from the 1Password 7 for Mac welcome screen by clicking the "need a license? We have those too" link. A 1Password 7 for Mac license is regularly $65 USD + tax, but is on sale as of writing for a limited time for $50 USD + tax.

    Please let me know how you make out.

    Been a fan for 10 years - when you shifted to membership mode you told me you would continue to support version 6 for Mac. Now 6 no longer works with Safari so either I change browsers or loose a key feature of your software. I paid for my license - surely if you are forcing me to upgrade you could offer a reasonable discount for the update. I don’t expect freebies -
    but I don’t appreciate the way you are forcing me to pay for membership or $50 for the required update.

    @garymonroe: No one will force you to upgrade. But as with 1Password 1 through 5, version 6 is no longer being developed. And there is a cost associated if you do upgrade, just as there is developing 1Password. This isn't a hobby for us; it's how we make a living. So if you'd like to use 1Password 7, you'd need to get it either as part of a paid 1Password membership, or by purchasing a license specifically for it. Those are the options we can offer.

    Many people put countless hours into their lives into developing 1Password 7 and the new Safari App Extension for Safari 13, which is completely different from the old .safariextz that previous versions of 1Password for Mac used. That's the only way for any of us to use 1Password in Safari going forward, and I don't think it would be fair to not pay them for their work. No shame in that.

    If you wish, you can continue using 1Password 6 with browsers which have not changed their extension frameworks since it was released (which is most of them, though that will likely change in time as browsers -- and OSes -- evolve). But upgrading is recommended since not doing so is counterproductive both to compatibility and, in turn, security, if you're not updating other software to try to mitigate that. I'd suggest that a 1Password membership provides an ongoing value, in that you've always got the latest version for all your devices, and even if they are all lost, stolen, or destroyed you can simply sign into your account to get your data back. Food for thought. :)
