It was very disappointing to read that 1Password 6 will stop working with Safari 13.
On Monday, Apple released the macOS Catalina public beta that includes a preview of Safari 13, which is set for release this fall. We’ve discovered there’s lots to love about Safari 13, but we’ve also learned that it will no longer work for customers using 1Password 6.
I moved from LastPass to 1Password when LastPass had a security issue a few years ago. Another thing with LastPass, I didn’t like having my passwords on LastPass’ servers. At that time the 1Password vault was locally stored which is what I was looking for.
Now, here’s my dilemma. One, 1Password 7 is a subscription, which I don’t want, or I could buy the upgrade for the standalone version at $49.99 which I don’t want to do either since 1Password 6 does everything I need.
Here are my options:
1Password 6 will continue to work in Firefox and Chrome so I could switch to Firefox.
1Password 6 will continue to work with other browsers. Safari lovers like myself won’t want to hear this one, but if you’re stuck and really can’t upgrade, you can still use 1Password 6 in Chrome, Firefox, Opera, and Vivaldi.
Or I could switch password managers and continue using Safari as my preferred browser. I have Enpass installed on my Macs, and iOS devices but haven’t used it. One thing I like about Enpass is vaults are locally stored and can sync via iCloud. I also like that Enpass is a purchase and not a subscription.
Over the next few weeks, I’m going to experiment with my options.
