Choose what you share

Use vaults to share some information and keep the rest private.

Each family member starts with two vaults:

  • A Private vault, where you can store items for yourself. It’s a great place for your email login, social media passwords, and anything else you don’t want to share.

  • A Shared vault, where you can store items to share them with the rest of the family. It’s a great place for your home Wi-Fi password and Netflix login, for example.

Learn how to use the Shared vault

Share with certain people

You can create more vaults to share with certain people in the family.

For example, you may want to share credit cards, bank accounts, and other sensitive information between you and your partner, but not with your children. Create a vault and only share it with your partner so you both have access to the items.

Share with guests

Guest accounts are perfect for sharing limited information, like your Wi-Fi password, home alarm code, and instructions for your babysitter.

Guests can have access to a single vault at a time. They won’t have their own Private vault or access to your family’s Shared vault.

Help when you need it

1Password Families gives you the tools to help your family and world class support for when you need it yourself.

Recover accounts for family members

If someone in your family forgets their 1Password account password or can’t find their Secret Key, you can help them recover their account. They’ll be back up and running in no time.

Share the load

As a family organizer, you’re responsible for managing the family and recovery. But you don’t have to do it alone. You can make other people family organizers so you can share the responsibilities.

It’s important to have at least one other family organizer. That way, if you can’t sign in, someone will be able to help you.
