You Can Now Share 1Password Files, Documents Securely with Anyone

1Password has updated its secure item sharing option to support sharing documents and files, which can be attached to any other 1Password item, like logins, secure notes, and credit cards.

For those who aren’t familiar, item sharing with 1Password is the easiest way to share anything in your 1Password vault with anyone else. To do that, simply open the item in 1Password, navigate to the item menu, and select “Share.”

When you share an item with 1Password, you’ll see two options. You can set an expiration date for the sharing link, as well as choose to share it with anyone with the link, or only with people you specify.

When the recipient clicks the link, they can copy each field individually, or save a copy of the item in their own 1Password account. That last bit’s optional, though: recipients need not be 1Password customers to view a shared link.

To recap: open the item in 1Password, share it, and send it. Easy.

Item sharing is available now to all 1Password 8 users.
