On Sept. 1, Dropbox is disabling support for its legacy API. Some 1Password customers
on iOS will lose the ability to save information to Dropbox on the same day.
Who is affected?
The only customers affected by this change are those folks using 1Password 3 for iOS. Come Sept. 1, this old version of 1Password will no longer be able to sync with Dropbox.
Customers using 1Password for Mac
and Windows, 1Password 4 for iOS
, 1Password for Android, and 1Password for Windows Phone have nothing to worry about since these versions already use Dropbox’s next-generation API.
To determine if you are using the affected version, take a look at the app icon on your iOS device’s home screen. If it matches one of the icons below, you’ll need to take steps before Sept. 1.
Steps to take
Customers using 1Password 3 for iOS will need to either upgrade to 1Password 4, or switch to Wi-Fi sync.
For a limited time, AgileBits has dropped the price of 1Password 4 to $7.99. It is normally priced at $17.99.
Version 4.0 is universal and includes over 20 new features. These include a full-featured Web browser, Favorites, quick Action Bar, folders, and private item sharing.
Users of 1Password 3 for iOS who don’t wish to upgrade, can use Wi-Fi sync.
Please note: Wi-Fi Sync only works with 1Password 3 for Mac
. It doesn’t currently support 1Password 3 for Windows. For more information, see AgileBit’s support document and video
that explains how to switch.
