Because 1Password 6 and 7 accepted both local vaults and subscription, I was using both for some time. Hard to switch to anything else (back to local vaults and lose functionality), It is still sad to see local vaults go.

Don't you get the most important functionality syncing 1Password via Dropbox or iCloud? The other stuff isn't really necessary to me. . .

I just had a thought: If the vault is only in the Cloud, what happens when your Internet connection is down and you need to access?

1Password Standalone with Dropbox doesn't support the TOTP/MFA features that 1Password Membership supports if I recall correctly, Subscription has a backup to their own cloud. No local backups, IIRC.

1Password subscription lost the support of Folders and instead relies on Tags.

While I prefer Time-Based One-Time Passwords (TOTP) and Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) for my online accounts, I don't need it when encrypted data resides on my Mac. I would accept nothing less when storing password manager data on a server.

Dropbox is designed for syncing; it is not a backup service. I currently do not sync my 1Password data. Cloud-based syncing services vary in their support for MFA and encryption. If sensitive data is being synced, the service should offer encryption and MFA for account access.

I need to learn more about that lack of folder support. . . I am a dedicated folder user; I've never adopted the use of tags.

Isn’t the vault containing 1password data encrypted to a degree i could send a copy to the best code breakers and without my password they would take years to open it?
