Two accounts on one computer?

Community Member

My husband and I use the same computer and browser. How can we both access our individual 1password accounts from the same computer? We are have a family plan.

    If you are on a Mac, I would suggest setting up two separate user accounts and then switching between them. Then you can use your separate 1password (family) accounts. I don't think you can use separate 1password accounts on the same. commuter account/browser.

    I have this question also. My wife and I share the same desktop/iPad. I had already established my account on the apps of these devices. If I try to add her account (to either iPad/Mac) it says “1 Password account cannot be added. A member from your family has already been added”. Okay, so I appears that she is good to go in the app but when she trys to use her master password to open the app it denies her. Any help would be awesome.

    Hi @snyd1:

    The 1Password apps do not support adding multiple users from the same 1Password account in a single computer account.

    Creating a separate computer account would be your best bet:

    For macOS: Set up users, guests, and groups on Mac - Apple Support
    For Windows: Create a local user or administrator account in Windows

    As for the iPad, at this time there isn't a way to add both your account and your wife's account to the 1Password app for iPadOS. Let me know if that helps, or if you're still running into issues along the way.
