You only have to go through this process once. Afterwards, you can share passwords very quickly from within your Entry window.

How to Share a Password

Click on an entry in your password list. This will open the Entry window. On the right-hand side, you'll see three tabs. Click Sharing. You should then see a list of people that you can share with. (If the person you'd like to share with is not in the list, you may need to  follow steps 2 and 3 above).

To share your password entry with a person in the list, simply tick the box next to their name. Two additional options will appear.


Choose view only and you will allow the person to see and use autologin for the password, but not make any changes(this is the default).

Choose view & modify to allow the other person to make and save changes to your entry.

Any changes made to the entry will automatically available to both of you, as well as to anyone one else you are sharing the same entry with.

 Press the OK button when you're done.
