Joining family account from private account

My son just invited me to join his 1Password family. I have a 1Password account. What happens with my account which is I believe paid for until December? Is it different than just joining if I did not have an account

1Password Version: 7.8.6
Extension Version: 2.0.4
OS Version: Os11.4
Sync Type: Cropbox

    Hi @MeiLie!

    Is it different than just joining if I did not have an account

    No difference, you can join a Families account regardless of whether you already have your own account or not :)

    If you already have data in your account, you can move it to your new Families account:

    1. Add both the old and the new account to the 1Password app
    2. Move your data to your new Families account

    Once you have transferred your data, you can certainly also decide to delete your previous 1Password account if you are not going to use it anymore :+1:

  • But If I keep it I am paying for the same information twice?

    No, you would not pay for your Families account, only the person who invited you does. Once you start using your new Families account though, it sounds like you won't need this second subscription for your Individual account though, so you can cancel your individual subscription if you wish.
