Personal or Private for the first vault created?

I noticed when creating new accounts the name of Personal vaults is now defaulting to Private? Is that the new standard? I don't see the ability to rename the first Personal/Private vault that gets created.

    Hi @Cartman,

    Yea, the name of that vault changed at one point. We used to always name them "Personal", but now we only name it "Personal" for the vault created for users in an individual 1Password account. Now in the case of 1Password Teams and Families, it's named Private.

    Unfortunately since those vault names are encrypted with your vault key, and we don't have your vault key, it's not possible for us to migrate that and make it the same for everyone. We currently have no feature that allows you to rename the Personal vault, but I suspect that that will change at one point. I can't think of any real reason for why we wouldn't allow users to rename that vault.

    Indeed, we'd like to make it possible for users to rename their Personal/Private vaults in the future as well. Thanks! :)

  • Thank you both! Would be nice to have consistency for all employees. Will look forward to being able to rename it but it is really a low priority so keep up all the other great stuff you are working on.

    Haha I understand completely! There can be confusion already when we're talking to customers too about Personal, Private, and Primary vaults. If we make it possible to change the name, I'd like us to add some kind of icon to the "main" vault to at least make it easy to differentiate from the others. Thanks for your feedback on this, and encouragement! :chuffed:

    And with Families, the Personal vault is called Personal?

    For all new group membership accounts -- families, teams, business -- the vault which is only accessible to the user and can never be shared is called "Private". That doesn't retroactively change existing accounts, just new ones will use this.

    Now add up to 5 Personal Vaults from 1Password Families!

    Each 1Password membership account will only have a single Personal/Private vault which can never be shared.

    If 1Password Families has all the features you need for your own personal/family use, I'd go with that. 1Password Business is a better option if you need more powerful access controls for managing data within your company though.
