My partner an I have various Mac and iOS devices. If we purchase 1P for Mac and 1P for iOS can we sync our separate info ta all devices for both of us to use?

    Hi @Anubis_Dave‌

    You certainly can.

    Depending on how you wish to set it up you can have either:

    • A single vault you share between all of your devices.
    • A primary and private vault each for your own stuff and a secondary vault you share for your common logins.
    • Not as recommended but you can have your own primary vault and then you each have a secondary vault which represents the partner's primary vault.

    So there are a variety of potential configurations. Depending on how you want to set it up you might be able to get away with a single Apple ID for iCloud sync of a single primary vault between all the devices or the use of individual Dropbox accounts for the other suggested routes.

    As you can see, there are a number of options. If you have any thoughts about how you would like to share stuff, we can help form a better idea of how you would sync if you were to purchase. That might help you decide if 1Password is a good fit. Let us know and we can continue the discussion :smile:

    Hi and thanks for the info.
    The way I'd like to share our stuff is as you suggest, have one shared vault and two individual ones, syncing to separate Apple IDs for iCloud sync. If this is possible I'll purchase 1P for Mac and 1P for IOS.
    Thanks

    Hi @Anubis_Dave‌

    Just to ensure you're fully informed.

    If you have individual Apple IDs that you link using Apple's Family Sharing then all of your Macs will be able to download 1Password for Mac with a single purchase covering all. 1Password 5 for iOS is free to download but the optional in-app purchase can't be shared using Family Sharing, so if you both wanted to make use of the additional features that would require an in-app purchase per Apple ID but a single purchase each would cover all of your devices.

    Using your individual Apple ID, you can each synchronise your primary vault using iCloud (sadly only available in the MAS version) to all the Macs and iOS devices connected to that iCloud account.

    To synchronise the secondary vault you would need to use Dropbox. If neither of you use Dropbox then a single shared account would be sufficient for your needs. If you both already use Dropbox then you can continue this arrangement by the creator of the secondary vault synchronising it to their Dropbox and then sharing that folder with their partner.

    At this point you would have the setup I believe you're after. Unfortunately there is no way to share a secondary vault between iCloud accounts.

    Would that work for you?
