1PasswordX vs 1Password (desktop app required) for Chrome

I see that at different times I installed two different extensions for Chrome (77.0.3865.90 on MacOS Mojave): 1PasswordX and 1Password beta (desktop app required). I wanted to ask:
1. are they both legitimate?
2. if so, what is the difference? (I am sure this has already been explained, I am just confused about what information is up to date)
3. If I have the standalone app 1Password 7, which of the two extensions should I use?
Thank you in advance.


1Password Version: 1Password 7
Version 7.3.3.BETA-2 (70303002)
Extension Version: Beta 4.7.5.1 (inactive) and 1Password X 1.16.2
OS Version: MacOS 10.14.6

    Hey @MarcoVF,
    When you say 1Password beta, do you mean the 1Password companion extension?

    1. are they both legitimate?

    They are.

    1. if so, what is the difference? (I am sure this has already been explained, I am just confused about what information is up to date)

    The main difference is that 1Password X runs on web browsers and does not require a desktop app, but it requires a 1Password membership. You can see more details here: https://support.1password.com/getting-started-1password-x/

    1. If I have the standalone app 1Password 7, which of the two extensions should I use? Thank you in advance.

    With a standalone license, you can use the 1Password companion extension (desktop app required).
