Finding passwords in multiple vaults

I'm experimenting with Families on a trial basis, after having used the standalone app for many years. I've currently set up 5 vaults across 3 people - private per person, a shared for all, and another shared for just my wife and I. But, I now find using 1P is more painful as the browser extensions, 1P mini, and the app only look at one vault at a time. As I browse around I need to remember which vault the password I need is in, and then set that in extension or mini or app, and only THEN can I get on with my day. Those additional steps are really annoying.

Is there a way for 1P to search for passwords across all vaults to which I have permission? If not, sounds like I need to duplicate passwords in the various vaults as opposed to sharing a unique entry (which is how we do things now with independent vaults) which kinda defeats the purpose and causes all kinds of obvious problems with keeping everything synced.

Thanks,

Ken

  • OK - I have figured this out. The problem is eyesight - not 1P :) I did have all vaults selected but DID NOT see the greyed out "show x more items" text after the items that were displayed. It so happened that what I was searching for in my testing was always in this extended set as I am so used to only typing the first few characters to find things.

    Apologies for the wasted bandwidth.

    Hi @broken42! Thanks for sharing your question and self-found solution with us - glad to hear you got things sorted out! :chuffed:

    For others looking at this question in the future, the "All Vaults" view is the way to do this; it's a "virtual" vault that combines the contents of other vaults, and is a quick and handy way to work with multiple vaults at the same time.
