'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. 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.

Many people use vaults to organize and share their passwords for different purposes, so this will be a handy feature for accessing the passwords from multiple vaults without needing to switch back and forth. All Vaults also incorporates information from the Teams Beta, and there's a new Teams-only mode. Along with a new vault view, the new 1Password update introduces a revamped Strong Password Generator that brings it inline with the 1Password for iOS app. Included is a new wordlist password generator with a "Words" option to create a password that is composed of random words. Wordlist passwords are useful because they're much easier to remember than a random assortment of characters, but are no less secure. For people who use the non-Mac App Store version of 1Password, there's an important new feature - iCloud syncing. Apple previously did not allow non-Mac App Store apps to sync with iCloud, but changes to CloudKit have now allowed AgileBits to implement iCloud syncing for the version of 1Password purchased directly from the AgileBits Store. Being able to sync a non-Mac App Store app with iCloud is an achievement that took quite
