    Hi @Prospect67 - I appreciate the feedback and feature request. 1Password Families doesn't have advanced permission controls compared to 1Password Teams. An option that might work for you... You can "copy" items over to the Shared vault so everyone has access to it. When you "copy" an item into the Shared vault, any changes will not sync over to the original item within your Personal vault. Only if you "move" the item over will any changes sync back to the original item. I know it's not exactly what you're looking for but it might work, if you don't want family members to be able to edit the original item. Let us know if you have any additional questions and again thank you for taking the time to share some feedback with us :+1:

  • Isn't it possible to create a new vault and give family members view-only access to it?

    @learning_1pw Indeed! And that solution may work for @Prospect67 as well. The default Shared vault's permissions can't be modified to view only, but you can certainly create a vault and make its permissions view only. :)
