1Password 4 sync guide

One of the things that makes 1Password so useful is that it’s available for a variety of operating systems; whether you’re on a Windows PC at work or an iOS device in the car, you can install 1Password and have your information handy and protected at all times. Manually updating 1Password multiple times on different computers and mobile devices would be a nightmare, so 1Password offers a variety of options for automatically keeping your vault synced.

If you are only using 1Password on Apple devices, iCloud is your best choice! It’s the easiest sync service: you turn it on and that’s it, you’re all set.

If you need cross-platform support, Dropbox is your best bet. It works in all the operating systems 1Password supports: Windows, Android, Windows Phone 7, OS X and iOS.

You can use this method to sync 1Password 4 for Mac with 1Password 4 for iOS, without using a cloud service like Dropbox or iCloud.

Folder sync lets you use the service of your choice to keep your 1Password vault synced. You can even use an application to sync your vault between computers without using any cloud sync service. This option doesn’t work with mobile devices, though; it’s only for syncing your vault with other computers.
