No shared vault - Just create a new one?

Community Member

We have a Family account and have not needed a shared vault until now. But now we would like to have one. And we noticed that none exists. Neither in the Mac desktop apps, nor online.

In this case, does one simply create a "shared" vault manually? Or is it somehow different from the vault that is normally created automatically?

    Hello @electricarts! 👋

    1Password Families memberships come with a default Shared vault that is special since it can be accessed by all of your family members. Some customers choose to delete the default Shared vault since they'd like to create new shared vaults that are only shared with certain family members and not others.

    You can create a new shared vault by following the steps in this guide: Create and share vaults

    I hope that helps! 🙂
