Thanks for letting us know this is something you'd find
I can't make any promises for you but I know our development
team is considering what to do with the menubar icon for a future
version of 1Password they will certainly keep your feedback in mind
with their decision.
I like the menubar icon too and I hope we'll be adding it into
all versions of 1Password and expanding on it but I don't know what
they're decision will be. Your feedback certainly helps!
I wish I had a more immediate solution for you and I appreciate
I just purchased 1Password and have started using it. The
1Password key icon at the top right on the Menubar by clock (or
more accurately it was next to the triangle at the far left of
attached screenshot) was there until I right clicked it and
selected quit. Now it's gone, I've restarted my Mac OS X Lion and
still not there. Any idea how I would go about getting that back.
Can you describe the icon? Current versions of 1Password do not
live in the menu bar, so I am not sure what exactly it was that you
were seeing. We only offer a button for your browsers, not anything
that lives in the menu bar.
Thank you for the reply. I wish I could describe it exactly, I
believe it was a square'ish box with a downward pointing key just
as in the browsers (in my case Chrome and Safari)....
OK, so what I just did was uninstall the program, removed the
extensions from Safari and Chrome and reinstalled 1Password, still
no icon in the top menu bar. Then when I thought to re-install the
browser extensions I was greeted with the Install Browser
extensions screen with a "lets get started" bar at the bottom. Then
I clicked on that and I see a pic (see attached pic "Helper") that
shows the menubar icon I'm missing. I proceeded to install the
browser extension(s) and as soon as I did that the key icon
reappeared on my menu bar at the top of my display.
Now if I were to right click (or command click) that key icon
and choose quit, it will disappear and I believe I would have to
remove the browser extensions and re-install them to get that icon
See my menu par pic "icon"
I guess I now just won't quit it from that location unless I do
want to lose that icon. (see image "icon quit"
I now gather that having the icon there saves me from having to
have the 1Password program launch Icon in my main program tray at
the bottom of my screen and I also presume this way it will always
be running unless I quit the program from my applications folder in
the Finder or in my lower tray if I were to choose to have the
Launch Icon reside there.
So was that a short story long? ha ha!
I hope that was helpful for us both and for whoever else comes
across this post. If you have any tips to add pertaining to this
for further enlightenment please let me know.
Thanks again for your prompt reply earlier! Best regards,
How do I get the icon to show up? I'm using 1Password Version
3.8.19 (build 31419) (which it says is up to date) but I can't find
"1Password > Preferences > Extensions"
I only have "General, Security, Browsers, Logins, Backup, Updates,
Advanced" and I don't see any settings referring to helper or
When I look at activity monitor I see a 1PasswordAgent
After a quick look on the Mac App Store it looks like version
3.9.5 is available, do us website purchasers get left behind on the

The icon is only available from the Mac App Store version.
There are currently two versions of 1Password being worked
1) 3.8 which is from the website
2) 3.9 which is from the Mac App Store.
We currently have 3.8.20 in an internal beta form right now.
However, the key icon in the menu bar is only available on the Mac
App Store version because it requires Lion. Since the 3.8 version
from our website can run on Snow Leopard as well, we are unable to
include a Lion only feature in that version.
Do realize we're not leaving you behind on updates. You're still
getting updates and aside from that menu bar icon, 3.8 is feature
for feature the same as the Mac App Store version.
