Having transitioned from other tools to 1P, I'm somewhat anxious about setting up a Family membership as opposed to the process I've used before: Emergency Access. Maybe my situation is unusual or my concerns overblown, as many users are pleased with the Family setup. In brief, Emergency Access allows designated people to access to specific items in my vault after a stated time period. E.g., the designee requests access through an account and I have three days to deny the request.
Here's my basis for liking this approach: If I'm incapacitated, Designee A needs access to certain of my accounts. I don't want to grant any access while I'm capable of handling my affairs. I may not want to give up full control unless there's a emergency. With a shared vault, items become available to designees immediately. I can revoke the emergency access before it's used. Please tell me if I'm missing something here or my concerns are so obscure as to not warrant consideration. Perhaps there's a security issue with the way that such access is able to be provided, but often works on a public/private key basis. Thanks.
