In this late May AgileBits released the new 1Password 7 for Mac. The update is available on the Mac App Store as a separate download, requiring macOS Sierra (10.12) or later. Existing users with a 1Password membership can install this update for free. Yet, current users with a standalone license for version 6 will be prompted to subscribe or purchase a license for the new version, which costs US $64.99.
As a password managing application developed by AgileBits Inc, 1Password is quite popular among Mac users. However, we also notice that some users face problems like the failure to delete the older version of 1Password, while other users may wonder how to completely remove 1Password after the trial version is expired.
Today we’d like to show you the proper ways of uninstalling 1Password for Mac.
Before the uninstall, you need to do a preparation work. That is, to quit 1Password if it is currently running on your system. To do so, right click on 1Password icon if it appears in the Dock, and choose Quit option, or click 1Password > Quit 1Password from the Menu bar when 1Password window is active. Meanwhile, you can launch Activity Monitor to kill all its process running on the background. Here’s how to do:
After that, take one of the solutions provided below to remove 1Password.
Solution 1: Uninstall 1Password with Osx Uninstaller
Solution 2: Uninstall 1Password in /Applications Folder
Solution 3: Uninstall 1Password through the Launchpad
What about the app leftovers after you have successfully removed 1Password? If you wish to remove all your 1Password data, including backups, do the followings:
Until now you should have been able to totally remove 1Password from your system.
Which uninstall option do you prefer to use? To sum up, uninstalling 1Password by using Osx Uninstaller is more effective and time-saving if compared with two other solution, and more importantly, you don’t need to manually delete 1Password-related files. Uninstalling 1Password via Launchpad only works when you install the app through Mac App Store, while the Trash-To-Delete are feasible for modern version of macOS/Mac OS X and for most third party apps (yet may not work for some stubborn, problematic or malicious apps).
