Even if you’re not a fan of all the mushy stuff, Valentine’s Day might still get you in the mood to think about those important relationship milestones.
Making things exclusive, getting a drawer at their place, moving in – these are all important steps in a relationship. But one milestone rarely mentioned – perhaps so commonplace it often goes unnoticed – is sharing passwords with your significant other.
Okay, so giving someone your Netflix login doesn’t sound that romantic. But while it may not sweep them off their feet, it’s a big sign of trust. Whether you’re married, living together, or you’ve just reached the password sharing stage, if you’ve been flirting with the idea of 1Password Families, it’s time to make your move.
Not sure you’re totally ready to commit? You can share only the logins and information you’re comfortable with while keeping everything else private. Even better: 1Password Families is cheaper than two separate accounts while still letting you maintain any boundaries you might need.
Lost your Master Password? Just like a spare key under the welcome mat, if you’re both family organizers, you can recover each other’s accounts. And, if your family grows, 1Password can grow with you. You can add up to five family members to your account and even invite additional people for just one dollar a month.
Need to leave special instructions for the babysitter? Dog walker looking for the alarm code to pick up your furry friend? You can invite guests to a shared vault – perfect for safely sharing limited information for a limited time.
