I have a family plan and a family computer. How should mac app be setup?

My macbook has the Mac app installed on it, but it asks for my master password when opening it. Is there a way to set up the app to ask for the password for whichever user is trying to open it?

    @smurfph: Thanks for reaching out. I’m sorry for the confusion! No. 1Password is a single-user app. But macOS is multi-user, so each of your family members can have their own user account with their own 1Password (and browser, Desktop, etc.) setup, so they can unlock the app with their own Master Password to access their data. I hope this helps. Be sure to let me know if you have any other questions! :)
