    Welcome to the forum, @ajm1811! Thanks for the question. First of all, good for you for making sure each family member has a copy of his or her Emergency Kit -- they're important!

    However, no, you cannot print another family member's Emergency Kit. The reason is that the Emergency Kit contains a printed copy of the user's Secret Key, which is private. It's also one of the two encryption factors (the other being the Master Password) which, combined, create the AES56 encryption key which decrypts all your 1Password data.

    We enthusiastically encourage the desire to help keep family members safe and secure, but in this case the best thing to do is ask that family member to print out a copy themselves. If they can't print because they live in a different place than you, where there isn't a printer, that family member could print to a PDF instead, then save the PDF out to a USB flash drive or even burn it to a CD/DVD, and print it at your house or a local copy shop.

  • Thanks Lars. I'll get them to print it out.

    Great! And while we'd recommend they keep it in a secure location like a safe deposit box, if they lose access to their account anyway, so long as you have access to your account, as the family Organizer, you can still help them recover:

    Cheers! :)
