Link a family account to your business account

Learn how to link a family account to your business account to get a free 1Password Families membership.


When you’re part of a team that uses 1Password Business, you get a complimentary 1Password Families membership, which you can share with up to 5 family members.

To redeem your free membership, link your family account to your business account.

To link a family account, you’ll need to enter a code from your business account.

Step 1: Find your code in your business account

  1. Sign in to your business account on
  2. Click your name in the top right, and choose My Profile.
  3. Under “Link a family account”, click Generate Code. You’ll see the code you need to link your family account.

Step 2: Redeem the code in your family account

To redeem the code when you’re signing up for 1Password Families, enter it in the Gift Card Code field when you’re asked to add a credit card.

To redeem the code in a family account you already have:

  1. Sign in to your family account on
  2. Click Billing in the sidebar.
  3. Click Redeem Gift Card, enter the code, and click Add Payment Method.

Your 1Password Families membership will remain active as long as it’s linked to your business account. If you leave your team or unlink your family account, you can add a payment method in your family account to keep using it.

Get help

If you don’t see the option to add the code in your family account, contact 1Password Support with your code.

If you have an individual account, you can upgrade to a family account to redeem the code:

  1. Sign in to your account on
  2. Click Invite People in the sidebar and choose the family option.
  3. Choose a sign in address, then click “I have a code from a business account” and enter the code.

Your 1Password Families membership is complimentary as long as you’re a member of the business account. If your linked family account becomes frozen, make sure that:

  • you see your linked family on My Profile in your business account
  • your team has an active subscription to 1Password Business

If you leave your business account or are removed from it, your family account will be unlinked from it and become frozen. You can add a payment method to start a 1Password Families subscription.

Linked family accounts share only their subscription status with a business account. Ownership and access rights aren’t shared. A linked family account belongs to the family organizer, and the business can’t access or manage it.
