6. Multi-User Plans & Password Sharing — 10%
We test each password manager’s ability to handle multiple users and facilitate password sharing within a team or family. We also assess the options for adding and removing users, the ease of sharing passwords and logins, and the level of control offered to the administrator or owner of the account.
Our team will create an account on the password manager we’re testing, assess the overall experience when using family management dashboards, and check for any limitations or additional costs for adding multiple users. We’ll also check if the product offers discounts on its family plans.
Finally, we evaluate the security of the password sharing process, including how passwords are encrypted, how they’re shared, and whether you can choose the access level granted to each user. We also examine any additional security features provided with multi-user accounts.
Based on each product’s multi-user plans and password sharing capabilities, we give a score out of 10. This makes up 10% of the final score for each password manager.
