    Hey @rwilliam. :smile: Can you clarify your question for me, maybe walking me through the steps you're taking? I am not sure what this means:

    The default always goes to the main account.

    So if you could expand on that for me, I'd really appreciate it.

  • when I click on the 1password icon in a login, and then open 1password, it asks for my master password. That works for me, but my wife trying to login using the same computer, has her own master password, and the popup 1password sign in doesn't allow her password, only mine. How do we make it switch to her account?Thanks.

    Is your wife using a separate user account on this device?

  • she is part of our family plan, but she has a separate vault/password.

    On the computer does she log into a separate user account? One that would have her own settings such as email client, browser, etc.. Or do you share a single computer user account login?

    Hey @rwilliam. Generally I'd recommend separate user accounts on a machine, but if you'd like to use the same user account, then separate browser profiles combined with 1Password X is the way to go. Then you each will have your own browser settings and copy of 1Password X, and you can sign in independently to your respective accounts. Here's how to set up profiles in Chrome and Firefox, since I'm not sure which browser you're using.

    Let us know if you give this a go and how it went. :)

  • I have created a separate profile for my wife in Google/gmail. How do I link that profile to her 1password account instead of mine?

    Did you add a new Chrome profile, as described in the link above? If so, add 1Password X to that new profile, and have your wife sign in to it.
