“Sync it yourself” with iCloud or Dropbox

1Password also supports syncing using two third-party services: iCloud and Dropbox.


If you only need to sync a single vault, only use Apple devices, and don’t want the benefits of a 1Password account, iCloud is a good choice. It’s only available on Mac and iOS, and only syncs your Primary vault.

If you need cross-platform support and don’t want the benefits of a 1Password account, you can sync your vaults using Dropbox. It’s available on Mac, Windows, iOS, and Android.

Sync over a local network (advanced users)

Sometimes you don’t want your data to leave your local network. This could be a personal preference or a corporate requirement.

WLAN Server

You can sync your Mac or PC with your iOS or Android devices over a local wireless network.

Sync to a folder

Lastly, you can keep a copy of a vault updated in a folder you specify. It’s up to you to configure your preferred sync solution to keep that folder in sync with other computers.

1Password 4 for Windows allows you to simply save your vault in the folder of your choice. On a Mac, you’ll need to keep a copy of a local vault updated in a folder.
