I own a Mac, iphone and ipad and so does my son living with me. Can we just use one license?

I haven't purchased 1Password yet and am just trying to determine an answer to the above question. The different scenarios you post did not include my configuration above.

1Password Version: Not Provided
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: Not Provided
Sync Type: Not Provided

    A. Mac = Yes, the AgileBits (1Password) license covers 6 people living in the same household.

    B. iPhone and iPad = Yes and No.
    Yes, as the iOS apps are free unless you want the pro features. https://support.1password.com/pro-features-faq/
    No, if you do want those pro features then you would need to pay for the pro upgrade under your iCloud ID and his. That would equal $10 for your upgrade (Single payment for all of your devices), and $10 for him (again single payment for all of his iOS devices).

    C. One last consideration you would need to look at before purchasing is what type of syncing do you wish to use. Dropbox and WiFi are available across all the store's. However if you want iCloud syncing it is only available through the Mac App Store version.


    • iCloud syncing also doesn't facilitate shared vaults between individuals, families and or business use. For cases where you wish to share additional vaults with other people. Dropbox is the recommended approach.
    • iCloud, Dropbox and WiFi syncing are always available on the iOS platform. The only one that must be thought about before hand is the Mac version.

    If you have any other questions feel free to ask away.

    Edit: clarification as a sentence could have been interpreted wrong in re: to the In App Purchase on the iOS app.
