problems setting up 1 password for a family member using a family account

Community Member

I have a family account and my wife wants to set up her 1password but all of her passwords appear in my account. Can she set up a seperate value that I can't see?

    Hi @docsteviec !

    Maybe you should take a look at the support page. There you could find the following, that should help a lot in your case:
    Get started with 1Password Families

    As you can read, everyone who joins your family account gets a Private vault where they can store all their personal passwords and other information. I think your wife has to select her Private vault to save her entries in. Maybe she used the Shared vault for her entries?

    That a Denal - I will check with her and hope that is it is a simple as that - she has already had 14 back-and-forth emails with Technical Support to no avail but sometimes the obvious things are missed out. I appreciate the rapid feedback. Best wishes. Steve
