Recommended way to share with subset of family?

ivarivar Junior Member

If I wanted to have some passwords shared between just parents, what would be the best way to do that? I've already setup a family vault for the whole family and ideally I would like to be able to assign passwords to the correct people in this one shared vault, but I can figure out how. Should I create a new shared vault for just parents ?

    Here's what we do.

    Create a new vault, named such that it makes sense to you, indicating its purpose "me --> parents" or "us --> parents", add your parents as read-only members, and then move the records you want shared with them.

    Keeping them read-only ensures they don't accidentally modify the records.

    We've helped our parents to do the same.

  • Funny you ask. I just upgraded to Family from license accounts where my wife and I shared everything in Dropbox. In the Family account, I created a new vault named "Parents" and moved most of the shared items there. The standard "Shared" vault will be shared with the whole family (me, wife, and kids).
