Hi, I'm looking for some help. I'd like to know how to setup 2 different accounts on the machine. Is it a case of buying multiple licences? I know you can setup new vaults inside the primary account but this isn't what I'm looking to do.

    Hi @Lawrence McCleland,

    It sounds like you're familiar with the feature to create secondary vaults in 1Password for Mac. Those secondary vaults would keep separate sets of information, but unlocking the Primary vault would also unlock all secondary vaults.

    Are you asking about setting up two completely different Primary vaults? That's not possible if you're both sharing the same Mac user account. If you would like to use 1Password for two separate users on one Mac, you will need to setup two Mac user accounts. Each Mac user would have access to the 1Password app, but would be able to setup completely separate Primary vaults.

    If you have more questions about that, please let us know. Thanks!
