1Password 5.1 for Mac: The Syncerrific Edition is here

Judging from the title, you might think this update is about Watchtower enhancements or properly formatting credit card numbers, but you would be only half right! 1Password 5.1 for Mac, rolling out now to the the AgileBits Store and Mac App Store, is all about sync.

In short, we completely overhauled how you manage sync for your primary and secondary vaults to save you time. In Preferences > Sync, you can now view all your vaults and how they sync, and change sync methods with a click.

OPM5 new sync pane

Wi-Fi Sync users also get a whole new Preferences pane that makes setup much easier. Oh, and secondary vaults can now sync via Wi-Fi!

We packed lots of other great changes into v5.1 for Mac, from copying addresses in Identities with just a click to support for Portuguese. You can view the full changelog for all the details.

1Password 5.1 for Mac is a free update available now for all v5 owners. If you’re a Mac App Store customer, please leave us a great rating and review, they really help!

As always, let us know what you think on Twitter and Facebook, and stay in touch with the AgileBits newsletter!

      Hi Karan! I’m really happy to hear you are enjoying the One Time Password support in 1Password for iOS. Thanks for letting us know you’d like to see it in the Mac app as well. While we can’t talk about future plans, I’ve added your vote to this request :)

    Wow… I can Sync now on a safe way only in my private Network a second (or more) vaults. I’m happy now, but I still asking me, why it it was not delivered from the beginning after you introduce multiple vaults? Well done… We have it now.

      Hi Robin,

      In hind site you are absolutely right – we should have included this from the beginning. While we might not get everything right off the bat, we do listen to our awesome users who clearly wanted this feature, and so we made it happen. I’m happy you’re happy :)

    I use Mac and purchased 1Password and have been using the family plan on two computers for a year when suddenly we were blocked, saying our “trial period” was up. We have fixed the problem by downloading what was needed to one computer who uses the same email in our registration. However the second computer uses a different email and we cannot figure out how to download from Agilebits what we need to make the second computer operational with 1Password. Can you please help us?

    Several day ago I attempted to update 1Password on my mac which is running OS X (10.10.2). This produced error which crashed entire app. Error message suggested reloading which was tried and yielded same results. Rebooted computer and tried again with no success. Cannot access any 1 Password data on the mac. All was working fine prior to update attempt. Versions on iPhone and iPad are intact. Any ideas?
