In my case, I all ready had DropBox installed on my iPad. I downloaded 1Password, started it up, told it I all ready had a DropBox vault, and it linked to it. Then it asked for my Master Password. The only slightly confusing thing for me is that it opened on my ipad to a blank favorites page. Selecting the vault icon (two stacked squares) revealed the info I was used to seeing. * Setting up the Safari to make use of 1P on iOS If you just install 1P on IOS you’ll find that when you click on a login in the 1P window, that iP will launch it’s own browser and log you in to the appropriate website. This is not ideal as the 1P browser does not include the functionality of Safari. As is, you could manually copy/paste passwords from 1P into Safari, but we can do better than this. Continue reading... * Steps required to make 1P more convenient for use with iOS Safari.\ -The 1P Extension: https://support.1password.com/guides/ios/extension.html. -Enable the 1P Extension: https://support.1password.com/guides/ios/enable-extension.html 1. Launch Safari. Tap the share button (rectangle with up arrow). On the iPhone find it at the middle of the bottom toolbar (bottom of screen), while on the iPad find it on the top right of the Safari Page. 2. Tap the 3 dot, “more” icon. You may have to slide the different icons to the left to find it. 3. Scroll down the list until you find 1Password and turn it on. If you hold the 3 horizontal lines to the right of the 1Password section, 1P can be scrolled to the top of the list. Hit “done”. * How to use the Fill Function with iOS Safari: https://support.1password.com/guides/ios/fill-items-safari.html 1. In Safari, at the web site you’d to log in at, pull up the login page, with the blanks where the login info must be inserted. 2. In Safari, tap on the share icon. If you have moved 1P to the top of the list as per the previous section (Enable the 1P Extension), 1P icon should be visible in the activity list. If not scroll the list until you find it. 3. Tap the 1P icon, enter the Master Password. 1P will open and display the list of 1P logins. Tap the appropriate login and 1P will fill in the required info name/email+ password. Close out the web site login page by finishing the login process (hit "enter or whatever) and you should be good to go. PC * Setting up 1Password on PC- If this is the last item to be synched up, install Dropbox on your PC, verify you have it synched with your existing Dropbox account. Download the PC version, launch it, in the choices, tell it you’ve all ready used 1P. Navigate to your Dropbox folder and open the Apps>1Password folder. 1P will ask for the Master Password and launch in trial mode until enter the Windows license key. (In Windows 1Password, select Help>Enter License Key. Tips and Misc Info * 1Password Password can be designated as “words” or “characters”. I prefer using words with spaces. Some Log in requirements are not happy with words and particularly not spaces because they either forbid spaces or require a mix of upper and lower case letters and/or a number or special (@,!) character. This is not an automatic option in 1P if “word passwords” are selected. For this case, choose “characters” or create a word password and manually alter it to meet the web site’s requirements. Fortunately when you interact with a web page login data and you have the 1P browser extension installed, 1P will monitor these changes and ask if you want to update 1P. The answer would be yes. * Use the 1Password browser extension to generate new passwords when changing password on a web page. Log into the website, navigate to the change password page, usually found under Settings. If the site asks for your original password, and of course you don’t have it memorized, use the next section to do this. Then in your browser (I use Firefox), click on the 1P icon. In the dropdown window, select Password Generator. Select your parameters, and use the fill button to conveniently add the new password to the site and finish there. If you like to keep a copy of a password somewhere outside of 1P, it’s not convenient to do this at this moment. If you try to copy the password while it’s being generated, the window may disappear on you. It’s best to finish the process, then if you want to keep an copy of the password, you can reveal it in 1Password to copy and paste. * How Dropbox Syncs 1 Password Vaults: https://support.1password.com/how-dropbox-syncs/ Quote: What about iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Android phones and tablets? 1Password for iOS and 1Password for Android also both have internal databases and create copies of your vault in Dropbox. The difference between them and 1Password for Mac is that they talk directly to Dropbox in the cloud. This is the reason why 1Password doesn’t require that you have the Dropbox app installed on your mobile device in order to sync your data with Dropbox.
