1Password Families

7.4
07 November 2019

Powerful security for sensitive information for up to 5 family members.

Overview

1Password Families is the one password manager that’s ideal for your whole household. Decide who you share your information with and what they can do with it. You can give your loved ones the tools to stay safe online without taking away their independence. But not everything needs to be shared with the whole family. Personal vaults let everyone keep their own private passwords and documents, all managed under a single subscription.

  • Share. 1Password is the easiest and safest way to share passwords, credit cards, and anything else that’s too important to email.
  • Protect. 1Password helps your family practice smart online security by generating strong, unique passwords for all your online accounts.
  • Relax. 1Password remembers everything for you, and automatically signs you into your favorite sites with a single click.
  • Features
    • Protection for the whole family - Five people can join in and have individual accounts on your single subscription. They don't even have to belong to the same household.
    • 1Password on-the-go - Sign in to your account, view and edit your items, and manage your family from your web browser.
    • Always up-to-date - You will always get the latest versions of 1Password and all new features as soon as they come out. Never pay for upgrades again.
    • Award-winning 1Password apps - Your subscription includes the latest, full versions of the 1Password apps for Mac, iOS, and Android at no extra charge.
    • Secure documents - Your family gets 1 GB of encrypted storage for documents, which you can share and access securely from anywhere.
    • Use on all your devices -- for free - Don’t stress about licenses -- install 1Password on as many computers and devices as your family owns.
    • Seamless sync - All your data appears instantly on all your devices with no work on your part whatsoever. There is no sync service to set up.
    • Watchtower service - Receive around-the-clock alerts whenever there are security breaches for the services and sites that your family uses.
    • Item history backup - Go back in time up to one full year and recover passwords which you or your family members have deleted or changed.
    • 24/7 support - Get free, one-on-one support from AgileBits employees whenever you need it. We're here to help you at any time of day or night.

    The published price is that of a monthly charge for an all-access subscription (desktop and mobile apps, free upgrades, Web access, and sharing) for up to five (5) people.

1Password is a fabulous application, and certainly worth the price, especially if you have a family of 4 or 5. $12 per year for the protection it provides--a great value.

I am a long term user of 1Password, but quit recommending it to friends and such quite some time ago simply because of the pricing. The reason for this comment is just that, pricing. Number one, I loathe subscription models. They are nothing but a headache and security risk. Quite frankly, I do not see myself as a future long term user of 1Password for these reasons. It is simply overpriced compared to the competition. I quit recommending 1Password a long time ago for these reasons. I can not in good conscience recommend the product. The rating I am leaving is unfavorable and you may or may not believe it to be fair because it is based upon my belief that the product is overpriced, but it is my opinion nevertheless. We will see what the free market decides.

I love 1Password and don't mind paying a fee to keep it sustainable. I spent 25+ years as a Sr. Systems Programmer and personally know something about programming for a living. I feel good about paying while I am getting what I'm paying for. AgileBits IS doing the job! 1Password is a great package on the Mac, Less on IOS, because of IOS itself. Five bucks is cup of coffee out somewhere with a friend, nothing to get angry about, people. In a year, though, from all of us loyal and appreciative users though, it is enough to keep AgileBits working for us to keep the product solid, ahead of the crackers, and up with Apple. I am hanging tight.

Yeah, it's worthless. Piracy waiting to happen.
I have the full 1password version family license, and if they ever change it to a subscription, then I will just get the next upgrade for free elsewhere.
I have been with 1password since they started, and I pay for all of the software I use, after I have tried it for free first. If I can't buy apps, like MacFamilyTree, because they quit selling it, and the only way to get it is on the MacAppStore, then i get it other ways. There's just no way I will EVER pay for anything on MAS again. It is a complete fail, other than for free apps.
If enough people revolt, maybe they will get a clue.
I always liked 1password because they have both the MAS version for those that get sucked into the scam, and then they have direct sales, and for the poor unfortunate people that got the MAS versions and learned the hard way, they will convert you to a real license.
I won't pay for MS Office or Adobe subscription garbage either. I just use the free office apps, and Gimp.
Maybe a subscription model is ok for companies, but for real people, it is a major fail!

TCalhau: Not a problem! 1Password Families is just a more affordable way to get 1Password for all of your (and your family's) devices, share vaults easily, not have to fiddle with sync settings, and always have the newest version. As always, you can pay for each individual app instead if you prefer. Cheers! :)

Panocha: It sounds like you're using the existence 1Password Families, The Mac App Store, and/or the fact that paid software exists at all to justify piracy. I'm not sure how to even respond to that. Yikes. :o

I can't speak for Apple, Microsoft, or Adobe, but as independent software developers, we at AgileBits don't take money from investors, and we're not for sale. The only reason we exist is to make 1Password, and, perhaps like you, the only reason any of us can make a living is that we get paid for our work. I hope no one expects you to work for free. I know I can't. :p

Therefore, we charge sustainable prices for our products so that we can continue developing our software and supporting all of our awesome customers, and we're very grateful to anyone who has supported AgileBits so my colleagues and I can make a living doing what we love.

Now, it's entirely up to you where you spend your hard-earned money, but we put a lot of time and energy into both developing, testing, and supporting new versions of 1Password...but again, the only way we can do this is by getting paid for our hard work (which we think is fair).

If you don't feel that you get value from 1Password, we'd love to hear any suggestions you might have for how we could improve it! After all, not everyone has a use for every piece of software out there. But even if you don't like 1Password, I hope you won't begrudge those of us who do depend on it — either as customers benefitting from using it, or as developers making a living from the hard work of creating, maintaining, and supporting it. Many people are glad that 1Password exists. And that includes folks who appreciate the benefits of a 1Password Families subscription and those who prefer to buy the standalone licenses. And the existence of either option doesn't negate the benefits of the other. ;)

brenty: I would be very grateful, VERY even if case was released a license with lifetime updates of 1Password. I'd buy even if it took 2x, 3x, 4x or 5x the value of the current license. That is, I'm willing to pay something around $ 350.00 for a license with lifetime updates of 1Password. I ask you to study this case because I believe there is a portion of its customers (like me) will buy this license.

@TCalhau: As a fellow software consumer, I totally agree that the idea of a "lifetime license" is appealing. However, I've used many apps and services myself — sometimes paying for them — which were either "free" to begin with or offered "free upgrades forever", and I can't think of any that are still with me today. So we don't offer free updates for life because it isn't sustainable.

I know many apps that did which are no longer being updated or supported because the developers needed to get paying jobs; and I know plenty of free apps which sustain themselves by selling customer information. We don't do that.

There are legitimately free options out there, but you get no support or guarantees that an update will ever come. It's still free, but you sort of cross your fingers and get what you pay for. And there are other cheap or "free" (with fine print) apps out there to use as well. We can't compete with that without sacrificing things that our customers (and we as users ourselves) value: privacy, polish, and constant improvement.

Your proposal is an interesting one, but I'm not sure it would be compelling to many people. As a consumer, I would be hesitant to give any company 350$ on faith that they'll continue to provide value indefinitely — that they won't take my money and run — or simply not feel like I've gotten my money's worth when all is said and done.

Just to put things in perspective, AgileBits has been around for 10 years now, so while l think we have an established track record, that's been built on the fact that we don't accept a one-time purchase for indefinite work; we sell a license for the current major release of 1Password and its minor updates, which can be used indefinitely; and then when we build something new, we evaluate what we need to charge to ensure that we can keep giving the minor updates and building major ones in the future. And in some cases, we give it away for free. Considering that 1Password for Mac has only had a single paid upgrade in the last 5 years, paying 350$ for your hypothetical "lifetime license" 10 years ago might not feel like such a great deal for you today. Definitely a complex issue. :)

I rely on 1P now to store not just passwords but all sensitive information including my software licenses. Typically i'm not a fan of subscriptions but security done right is worth paying for and I like the fact that I can now put 1P on all devices for no more than the initial $5 per month. My only complain it i'd like it to be a bit easier to get your vaults setup without resorting to referring to multiple "Account Keys".

Thanks for your kind words and support! I agree that it isn't as easy as we'd like it to be, but we're always working on ways to simplify the process. We just want to be sure that when we do so, it doesn't sacrifice security in any way. The Account Key is important because it prevents anyone from performing a brute force attack on your Master Password. And while it isn't fun to type it in, on a few platforms already we have support for using the QR code from an existing authorized device to authorize a new one quickly and painlessly, and we'll be adding that to all platforms in time. Thanks for bringing this up! :)

Yep! You say that like it's a bad thing! ;)

Up to 5 family members can simply login to their 1Password Account in the apps (or web interface) on each of their devices to access their data. It's also easy to share vaults with your family, there's no sync setup required, and all updates are included. And it's much less expensive than paying for each individual app for each family member — even for a family of one. And it's even cheaper if you choose an annual plan. But if you prefer that, you can still purchase the standalone apps instead. Cheers! :)
