1PW does not request new password after changing password in Dropbox?!?

I wanted to ask it before and forgot (or did i forget that I've asked it before?? |-) )

We changed the password in Dropbox. We expected 1PW iPhone to complain that the stored password is not good, or other similar alert, but nothing. 1PW continued to connect as before.

What's the story? Isn't it a security concern?

    I'm not sure how it would be a security concern. Since you have already authenticated via Dropbox you will still be connected using your existing auth token. That said, the auth token will eventually expire. It would be best to reset Dropbox syncing and enter your current password. In the 1Password iOS app, tap:

    Settings > Sync > Dropbox > Account > Reset

    Please let me know if there is anything else I can help with.

    If I understand it correctly, it is not a problem from 1PW side but from Dropbox side. When I change the password in Dropbox, it may be because i wanted to void all the existing auth tokens (especially those used to be saved in the clear). Now I see that this didn't happen. The old auth tokens are still valid.
