Share a vault between two accounts on the same Mac

Community Member

I have a MacBookPro on which I have work and personal accounts. Each account has its own iCloud account.
My 1Password Vault is setup on the work account and shared with an iPhone and iPad using WiFi sync.
The Mac based 1Password installation is v5.3 bought via the App Store. The iPhone and iPad are running v5.5originally bought direct from you.

I would now like to access the vault in my work account from my home account. What is the best way to set this up?

1Password Version: 5.3
Extension Version: 4.4.3
OS Version: 10.10.5
Sync Type: WiFi

    @dleseward: Data cannot be shared between iCloud accounts, so the only way to share a 1Password vault without copying it manually time and time again is using Dropbox. Check out this guide for more information:

    I hope this helps. Be sure to let me know if you have any questions! :)
