how do i hide my primary vault from another family user. i want her only to have her own vault.

I added my wife to my family subscription (same computer) but when i set it up she has access to my primary vault. I want her only to access her own personal vault and not mine. how do i do this?

    Hi @jriske

    Thanks for taking the time to write in. In order for this to work your wife would need a separate user account from your on the computer, if she doesn't have already. Then in that user account she would need to sign into her account within your family membership, rather than your account (the email address, Secret Key, and Master Password should all be different from yours). If you need assistance setting that up could you please let me know if the computer in question is a Mac or a Windows PC?



  • yes, please tell me how to do that. thank you. It's a mac.

  • she does have a separate user account

    @jriske: iMore has a good guide on setting up a Mac for multiple people:

    If you already have that setup, and you invited her she has her own account in your 1Password Families membership too, she just needs to setup 1Password with her own 1Password account under her own macOS account:

    I hope this helps. Be sure to let me know if you have any other questions! :)
