1Password Families 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.

I think Version 8 being Electron is what's finally shifting me away from 1Password. Does anyone know a good password manager like what 1Password used to be: Apple native for both Mac and iOS, works across both Safari and Edge (preferred for work) uses strong encryption and syncs through iCloud? Preferably not subscription based.

one more thing... if, as me, you don't live in America, you can request to store your information in Europe (see support.1password.com/regions/). We can change after but it doesn't seem to be easy

Honestly, in general, I hate the new subscription-based model. But in the case of 1Password (Families in particular), I think it's worth it ... It is a tool that I have already used daily for a long time. I just went to version 7 by subscribing to the families option. It will quickly pay for itself given the number of users (4, maybe 5), different machines and systems. In addition, I would like to emphasize the friendliness and efficiency of the online support that I have bombarded with questions these past few days ...

5-stars. Works REALLY WELL. Not perfect, but overall, an excellent product. (Please see my review -- also 5 stars -- on 11/19/19 on MacUpdate for 1Password standalone. Sorry, I didn't know there were 3 places 1Password was reviewed here. Good heavens. What's a mother to do?) Yes, there's a learning curve from v6, but once you get over that, it's a PLEASURE to use v7. The sync between devices works flawlessly as does the sharing of logins between family members. And frankly, dear friends, I'm getting a little tired of 1-star 1Password bashing, based solely on the fact that there is subscription pricing. Yes, Agilebits makes it too hard to license the product. I get it. But so what? $4.99 a month for four people is an absolute BARGAIN. You pay more for a single CUP OF EXPRESSO at Starbucks for crying out loud. Or at least be fair and BASH APPLE TOO. No one calls Tim Cook "GREEDY," when Apple charges $1,199 for a laptop that can't be upgraded after purchase, and has about the functionality of a PC costing half that. And charges $200 (!) more to upgrade RAM from the base 8GB to a functional 16GB -- RAM that should cost maybe $60 tops, except that -- oh right, Apple won't let you do the upgrade yourself anymore. Or swap out the hard drive. Or change the battery. And if you have any Thunderbolt 2 peripherals to attach to your peachy new Thunderbolt 3 port, that'll cost you an extra $49 for the adapter. ENOUGH. STOP THE WHINING. The world is moving toward subscription pricing. If you find a licensed product you prefer to 1Password, great! Write a review and let's have a look. I doubt it will match the functionality and convenience of 1Password, but I'm willing to listen. Regards, -SB

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.
