Password business and personal use


If we are using 1password for business, can users store private information without sharing with a team? If so, what happens to the user's private information (and account) if they are no longer team members, Thanks

    Hi @cptcrush

    1Password Business offers a 1Password Families membership for each of your team members. The only way in which these two memberships is linked is for billing purposes. As long as the person has an account in good standing within the business membership their family membership is covered. If they leave the business then they just have to start picking up the tab. The data is entirely separate.

    We do not recommend storing personal data within a business membership for exactly the reasons you'd expect. :)

    I hope that helps!

    Hello Ben,

    Please help me understand how a user can separate personal and business data in 1password. I am trying to understand how 1password needs to be setup/configured for a scenario where users can leave a business account and still keep their own data. How would that affect billing? Thanks

    Hi @cptcrush

    It would be accomplished through two separate memberships. You can read more about the process here:

    Link a family account to your business account | 1Password

    An account from each the business and family membership can be added to each of the native 1Password apps, and then you would select the appropriate one when saving data.

    How would that affect billing?

    As long as the person has an account in good standing within the business membership then their family account is considered to be paid for. If at any point they no longer have the business account then they would add a credit card to their family membership to avoid it becoming frozen:

    If your 1Password account is frozen

    Does that help? Please let me know.
