Need a complete list of features that Accounts offer but standalone license does not

edited December 2016 in Memberships

Can I get a complete list of features that can be found in 1Password Accounts but not a standalone license?

I'm aware of the big ones - not just the syncing of multiple vaults that I earlier asked about, but also your site says "web access on, automatic syncing, item history, secure sharing with family members, and several other features" are unique to Accounts. But what are those "several other features"?

1Password Version: Not Provided
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: Not Provided
Sync Type: Not Provided

    Ahoy again, @Mr. Laser Beam! :chuffed:

    It's easier to manage a single subscription than to keep track of separate licenses across different platforms and version upgrades. The subscription model also allows us to build in features and services that wouldn't be feasible in the standalone apps.

    If you have a 1Password subscription:

    • All app updates (including major upgrades) are included. No matter which plan you choose, you'll get the latest versions of all the 1Password apps:

      • Access your data even when you're offline.
      • Pro features are included on mobile devices.
      • Future upgrades are included for free.
    • Share and sync without a third-party sync service. With a 1Password account, there's no complicated sync setup. Simply sign in to your account on a new device, and you're ready to go.

    • Restore previous versions of items. If you accidentally changed or deleted an item, you can restore it.
    • Back up your data without lifting a finger. If your device is lost or damaged, sign in to your account on a new device. All your passwords and items will be there.
    • View and edit your data on You’ll also have online access to your data even if you're away from your main devices.
    • Brand new multi-factor security model. The security of your 1Password accounts is fortified by an Account Key. The Master Password alone is not enough to decrypt your data.
    • Access your data even if you stop paying. Your data is yours. Even if you ever cancel your subscription, you can view and export your data.

    You can invite people to your account at any time, and upgrade it to a family or team plan. Share with your spouse at home or teammates at work. If you have a family or team plan:

    • New vaults automatically show up for family and team members. When you add people to a new vault, they don’t need to do anything to begin using it right away.
    • Set permissions for each person on each vault. Some people only need read-only access to a vault, for example.
    • Help family or team members if they forget their Master Passwords. We've always prided ourselves on our security model which has no back door. While we still can’t recover anyone’s accounts, you can now recover accounts for your family and team members.

    Of course, we're adding new features all the time. So this may be slightly outdated if someone else comes across this in a month or two. But I hope it helps for now. :sunglasses:
