Family vs Team? What am I missing?

I have been dragging my heels at signing up for a Family account. Now, you go and introduce a Team Option. With the special, it is cheaper. My question is this - Why should I sign up for Family? It looks like Team Pro does everything it does and more....for less $? What am I missing?

    Hi @aces,

    1Password Teams is more expensive than 1Password Families.

    In general you should chose the options that represents the type of group you intend on sharing with: if you are sharing with your family then 1Password Families is designed to do that. If you're sharing with a company or organization, then 1Password Teams is the right choice (note that 1Password Families is not eligible for commercial use).

    1Password Teams is $4.99 per person per month, whereas 1Password Families is $5 including up to 5 family members per month.

    Both 1Password Families and 1Password Teams include options for paying annually which reduce the rate.



  • Ohhh! Per person! That would be what I'm missing. Family it is! Thanks.

    @aces Glad to hear Ben cleared things up for you. :) If you have any questions about 1Password Families, feel free to let us know. We're happy to help get you started with things.

  • Is there an option to increase the number of people in your family past 5? I have 5 children and I missed the promotion to get an extra two members with the families subscription.

    AFAIK each additional member will be an extra $1.00 per month, past the initial limitation. That could be guest users though, hmmm... Let me dig around a little.

    I am not up to that limit yet, so I cant say for 100% certain. One of the staff should get back to you soon.

    @Yo_Ayo Looks like @thightower beat me to it. He's correct — once you pass five members, they are $1 per month for each new one. Hope that helps! :)

  • It's just me and a virtual assistant, and I wanted to add my husband as an admin as part of a recovery plan. Should I switch to a family plan?
