Confirming a person who is added to the family account.

Community Member

I do not get this step. I send an invite to someone, they accept it, and then I have to confirm it? I never understood why I have to confirm them when I was the one who invited them in the 1st place. It seems like an unnecessary step. Is there a reason why?

    @prime 1Password binds a user's encryption keys with an email address. When you send the email invite, 1Password has no way of knowing whether it was the intended user who clicked the link or whether the email was intercepted by someone else. By confirming, you are verifying that it was the intended user who clicked the link and completed the enrolment.
