Share 1Password with your family

Learn how to give everyone in your family access to the items they need, like wireless network passwords or shared credit cards.

Your 1Password Families account includes a Shared vault that everyone in your family can use. Move passwords and other items to the Shared Vault to share them with your whole family:

  • your wireless network password
  • your Netflix password
  • emergency credit cards
  • passports
  • anything your whole family needs access to

Don’t have a family account? You can upgrade to one. Sign in to 1Password.com, click your name in the top right to open the menu, and choose Invite People.

If you started your subscription with an in-app purchase, you'll need to cancel your subscription before you can upgrade to a family account.
