AgileBits, the developer of 1Password, has announced a new family program for the password manager. 1Password for Families allows passwords, secure notes, and more to be shared between up to five people for $5 per month, and you can add more people for $1 per person.
With 1Password for Families, each family member gets their own copy of 1Password, and all 1Password apps come free with the subscription. The person in charge of the shared family vault can use the Admin Console to manage members and sharing, just like with 1Password for Teams. In addition to the shared vault, each family member can store their own private information in personal vaults.
Right now, AgileBits is running a special for those that sign up before March 21. You'll get $10 added to your family account, on top of getting the first month free. You can also get 2GB of secure document storage, up from the 1GB normally offered. Finally, you can add two more family members for free, for a total of seven.
You can sign up for 1Password for Families (opens in new tab) right now.

I imagine this is good news. Will do some research on other plan options. Thanks.
Agreed, need to check. As the administrator, I would like to know my kids private passwords, and just how it all works to avoid problems with IAP. Sent from the iMore App
Can anyone explain what 1Password does that the completely free keychain password doesn't do? I've often wondered...
I love 1Password and have used it for years. It seems a nice feature for a family, but at $5 per month it feels just too much -- especially if the family has loads of other monthly expenses (like Dropbox, Apple Music, etc.).
