1Password is one of the best password manager among all password manager software. Usually to use this software, you have to install a desktop program of it. It allows you to use your vault anywhere in the world through any web browser.

Now let’s see, How to enable 1Password Anywhere

For the 1Password vault user have to apply old AgileKeychain format in lieu of new OPVault format if we prefer to do it. It encrypts further metadata by new OPVault format. For instance, URLs are encrypted in OPVault and remains in the database as “sitename.com/signup” but not like Agilekeychain earlier format.

You can start using AgileKeychain by clicking on the “Help” from the menu, then go to Tools option and deselect “Enable OpVault for Dropbox and Folder sync”.

Also, it will be required that you have to sync Vault of  One-Password with Dropbox. This application was planned to operate at the website of Dropbox, so it might not work when it is synced with other storage like Google drive, iCloud, SkyDrive or OneDrive.

It can be ensured that your One-Password Vault is syncing with Dropbox like this:

Go to Preference in One-Password and then go to Sync tab; now confirm One-Password is set up in order to sync with Dropbox.

You have to set the synchronization option to “None” when it is configured to synchronize in OPVault format and then it should be configured back to the “Dropbox”. If any changes to the above option, .opvault will be used in lieu of .agilekeychain by One-Password.

Here I will explain “Access 1PasswordAnywhere on Computer”

Firstly, you have to get access to your Dropbox account by logging on the Dropbox website.

If “default sync structure” used by you, go to “Apps”, after that go to “1Password” and then “1Password.agilekeychain”. Here a will be showed named 1Password.html. For those accounts which are recently created, won’t be able to see this file. But still you have the access to download it at AgileBits and you will be able to work smoothly until you use the .agilekeychain format in your One-Password.

For that download One-Password application from here. Now extract all files from the .zip file and click on “upload” from the Dropbox. Select your 1Password.html file and upload to the folder named 1Password.agilekeychain folder. Protect your IP address from Skype Resolver, Learn How.
