    The 1Password folks will likely provide a more thorough reply soon, but until then, see the last bullet point, for their platform, in the Manage your settings section of this article (first bullet for Android).

    I believe new Generated Passwords items always go to the Private vault.

    You might want to state which platform and 1Password versions they are using.

    Thanks for the help here. Asking for latest iOS version and 1Password 8 for Mac (version 8.7.0; 80700095, on BETA channel)

    I don't see the option to select the default vault for new items in 1Password 8 beta, nor does the user in this post. If this is important, your parents should use version 7 until version 8 gets the feature.

    The link I posted earlier indicates the location to change, for 1Password for iOS.

    Hi @kevinob:

    As @MrC noted, there currently isn't a way of defining an overarching default vault in 1Password 8. With that said though, I've shared your thoughts internally on a feature request we have for this to make a return.

    As a longtime user of 1Password, this feature omission really complicates the app for me. I am on the Family plan and I want the default vault to be the one that I share with my wife. I also help manage my parents' 1Password vaults, and it will thoroughly confuse them to have their passwords saved to private vaults that they don't share with me. You really do need to bring this functionality back to 1Password 8!

    I have been using 1Password for a few years now, I have 3 accounts and now there is a problem in version 8 with the default vault for storing new passwords. I have been using different default vaults on each device. At work Private for work account etc. Do you foresee this as an option in future updates?

    Are you referring to the browser? Have you tried changing the option within 1Password in the browser? Does that happen to help?

    No. Unfortunately that option makes no difference.

    I have made that change, but I'm talking about 1Password preferences in the main app.

    Thanks for the followup I'll let the developers know this is something that you are keen on seeing.

    Same traffic aka I'll let them know this matters to you also. @wildedave 🙂

    Agreed! Default vault for save is a key feature that needs to return to v8

    We have 15 team members at our company and changing the default vault for saving is a must have. Admins can not access the contents of the team members' private vaults. Most of what our team saves is not private - it is company IP. Extrapolating this they are on a company owned machine using a company provided software.

    Real world examples- If a team member creates a log-in for a client's instagram account by default it goes in their private vault. They use this log-in day in and day out with no issue. This team member goes on vacation** - no one else can access the log in**. It's really a big problem for us. To avoid this we create a vault "- Team - FirstN LastN" for each team member as part of onboarding and change this to their default vault. This allows the 1P account owners to access the info they save by default. As part of onboarding we also train team members to save truly private info in their private vault i.e. their log in for Target or UberEats etc.
