Does a Families manager have access to all (such as kid's) vaults?

edited August 2019 in Families

I'm interested in a Families account. I'm wondering if, as a Families manager, I would have access to the vaults of other family members. What I'm wondering is if I'd be able to easily monitor the content of my younger kid's vaults.

    @landerfamof5: The Personal/Private vault of a user is never accessible to anyone else. You may want to consider inviting family members who aren't going to be able to manage their data themselves as guests:

    Guests have access to only a single vault you share with them. I hope this helps. Be sure to let me know if you have any other questions! :)

  • Hello Brenty,
    Can a guest add a password to the vault that is being shared with then? Such as creating a Vault for my daughter and inviting her, as a guest, to use it. can she add credentials for a webpage she likes to that shared vault?

    Thank you

    @zensummer: Unless you set their permissions to read-only, yes, they've be able to create and edit items in that vault. :)

  • Thank you very much for the quick reply! I did not expect a reply until Monday! That’s great, I will use that for my daughter. Enjoy what’s left of this great weekend!

    You're very welcome! Don't worry: I'm gonna enjoy some not-too-hot weather while I can. :lol: Anyway, if you think of anything else, we're here for you. :)

  • Thanks, Brent. So from what I understand, I could create multiple vaults (i.e. one for each kid) and invite them as guests to their respective vaults. They will be able to add logins/credentials to the vault as they need to, and I'll have access to their information if needed. Is this correct?

    That's correct @landerfamof5. And welcome to the forum! :)
