'1Password for Families' Gives Up to 5 Users 1Password Access for $5 Per Month

In November, AgileBits announced 1Password for Teams, giving 1Password users a way to share passwords with friends, family, and coworkers. As of today, 1Password for Teams is expanding to 1Password for Families, introducing a special pricing plan designed to give all members of a family access to secure password options at an affordable price.

1passforfamilies
For $5 per month, a family of up to five people can have full access to the 1Password software, allowing them to keep individual secure vaults to store their private passwords and share household passwords using a family vault. 1Password for Families is available on all platforms, including Mac, Windows, iOS, and Android.
It's never been easier to share 1Password with your whole family. There's no sync service to set up, vaults appear automatically, and there's an Admin Console where you can invite people and manage sharing with your family.

Every family member gets their own copy of 1Password, and their own personal space to store private information. With this, you can give them the tools they need to stay safe without taking away their independence.
Early adopters who subscribe to 1Password for Families before March 21 will receive a $10 credit equivalent to two months of free access, double the amount of secure storage for documents (2GB), and the ability to invite two extra family members for a total of 7 users per family account.

Customers interested in signing up for a 1Password for Families subscription plan can do so on the 1Password website.

While I love and use 1P this doesn't make much sense to me, a father of 3. It's $60/year. For the long term I'd still be better served by each member having their own vault and app.

Nope

If 1Password goes to a subscription model (this seems to be them testing the waters), I will simply never upgrade.

Everybody wants some of that sweet, subscription revenue. Most things don't deserve it - not that they're bad products, but that they don't warrant continuous payment and a 'rental' model for software. I think AgileBits are getting greedy.

I sync with Dropbox. I could create a shared Dropbox account and sync with that to create a family-wide vault.

I've been using 1Password since the git-go, and love it. But I'm not remotely interested in a subscription model no matter how packaged.

The App Store lets everyone in your family share the same paid apps. Why would I buy this aside from sharing some "family" passwords?

Right, it's not that big of a deal to setup a handful of "family" passwords a typical family shares.

But I strongly suspect 1Password for Family ($5/month for up to 5 members of the family) and Team ($4.99/month per user) are precursors to Agilebits moving toward a subscription model. I bet we will see $3/month individual plan by end of this year.

For now, it costs $49.99 for Mac or Windows client (although the app is occasionally on sale for $24.99) and $9.99 for iOS "Pro" In-App-Purchase (for features such as multiple values, OTP, Apple watch, additional categories).

I think it's unfortunate that existing customers get only a meager one-time discount of $10 to move to Family subscription. It should be free for 1-year for users that have both Mac/Windows and mobile clients.

This is the dilemma I'm looking at as well. $60 a year in the grand scheme of things isn't really much, but it's way more than the $0 I'm paying right now (app costs are already sunk at this point).

Just trying to figure out if the yearly cost would be worth it to keep joint logins in sync between the two of us without having to send updated info to her and have her add it into her vault.

1password is excellent.

A subscription model would reverse my opinion on 1password.

I imagine agilesoftware are feeling the effects of the no upgrade price policy of the AppStore..

I'm not paying a subscription fee of say $60 to store my passwords, secure notes, software license numbers on some
Remote server.

Enough with the ****ing subscription model already!!!!! I will drop this app so fast if they EVER think I'm paying a monthly subscription to use an app. I have no idea if they ever plan on moving to subscription-only, but I'll be long gone at that point.

Still too expensive. I have been using LastPass for $12 a year for ages. And these $12 cover all my devices. I cannot fantom why would I want to switch to 1Password that offers the same functionality at 3 times the price.

...and you can send passwords directly from the App, to family members.

I picked up a copy for the wife when it was on sale. If anything needs changing i just grab her phone and edit it when I edit mine. Sure syncing stuff would be nice, but not at that price.

I can't imagine family passwords would change very often, or that there would be very many of them. We have a garage door code, a router password…I mean what else do kids need? If my kid were old enough I probably wouldn't even give the router password and enter it myself so I can control it. It would be nice to share more passwords with my wife, but she usually just lets me manage most of our shared online things anyway, like financial accounts, bill payments for utilities and internet, etc. We each separately manage our own online presence, email, etc. It's not like it's difficult to update a few shared passwords.

What it comes down to is AgileBits is just trying to get around the fact that families already can share these apps, per Apple's terms of use. This might be useful for families who share everything and need to keep a ton of stuff in sync, but I doubt most users would find it worth the extra cost.
