Guest access - length of access

Hello, evaluating business account to see if it works for my small business. One question I had… How long can a guest account have access to share passwords for a shed world? Can I control when the guest access expires? Is there a maximum duration to which a guest can have access to share passwords or Vault?

    Hello @amitvikram,

    That's a great question about guest accounts in 1Password. There is currently no time limit for how long a guest account can exist, nor any tools to automatically expire the account, or their access to a vault. Can you let me know if this is a feature you would like to see in 1Password, and how you would use it? Our team is always looking to hear about new use cases and workflows that we haven't considered.

    In the mean time, account owners or administrators can sign in at any time to suspend or delete guest accounts. See our guide to Share with guests in your team for details on adding and removing guests, plus some other useful information.

    Let me know if you have any questions, and have a great weekend!

    Hello Scott, thanks for your response. For guess access, an option to set expiration would be helpful - so it does not have to be manually managed. After the set duration, if guest access for the specified user expires, its automatic and it can be re-enabled or extended manually. One less thing to audit in that case. Thanks!

    I've just filed your helpful feature request and comments internally. Although I cannot promise this functionality will be added, this will help our development and product teams consider this and track further interest in the future. Thanks for taking the time to share this.
