One Family Laptop & Multiple Chrome Profiles

Hi everyone! I have a family account and we have one laptop for the family that has just one windows account login. All family members have their own chrome profile. Is it possible to have the individual 1password accounts working for each chrome profile? Or must I setup seperate windows accounts for everyone? Many thanks and greetings from Switzerland!

    Hi @tommyballgame:

    Welcome! 1Password is designed to take advantage of the features provided by the operating system that it runs on. Modern operating systems such as Windows provide separate user profiles to keep data separate, so 1Password takes advantage of this.

    However, if you'd like to continue to use a single Windows account for all of the members of your family, this is still something that can be done. Install 1Password in your browser, for each family member's browser profile and add their 1Password account to the respective profile. After doing this, ensure that "Integrate with 1Password desktop app" is disabled in 1Password in Chrome (Right click 1Password in Chrome's toolbar > Settings > disable "Integrate with 1Password desktop app" in the General section). This will allow each profile of Chrome to operate independently, requiring each family member's account password to unlock 1Password, and not unlocking any other browser profiles, or the desktop app if you have that installed as well.

    Let me know how you get on with that! :smile:
