Welcome to TNW Basics, a collection of tips, guides, and advice on how to easily get the most out of your gadgets, apps, and other stuff.
Password managers are handy tools for when you don’t want to remember all your credentials. Plus, they provide an extra security layer of not typing in your password or storing it in plain text in a document.
But if you share a Netflix account with someone, or want to give a friend your home Wi-Fi password, it’s difficult to do that. Thankfully, 1Password is rolling out a new feature that will let you share a password or a secure note through a link.
Before using the feature, make sure you have the latest version of the 1Password app.
Here’s how you can use it:
- Open the 1Password app on your phone.
- Head to the password, login, or secure note you want to share with your friends and family.
- Tap on the share button.
- Select the duration for which you need the link to be valid. You have options including one view to seven days.
- You can also choose if this link is valid for anyone, or a select few people.
Once you share the link, your friend will be able to fill the password using it even if they don’t use 1Password. Now you can easily share credentials or details securely with people you trust.
