When Howchoo switched over to 1Password for Teams, we immediately enjoyed the intuitive interface and the ease with which we were able to share passwords across our team. In fact, we loved it so much that we even wrote a comprehensive review of 1Password, which we recommend you read through to gain a deeper sense of 1Password and password managers in general.
The 1Password Teams account is a moderately-priced business-like account that has all of the features most small teams or organizations will need.
Why your small team should have a password manager
Even a small team or business should have a password security among its team members. Think about it. Are there accounts, credit card information, bank information, etc., that you wouldn't want available over the internet. If the answer is yes, then you need a password manager like 1Password.
Not only will it protect your own information, but it will also help you make sure that your employees/team members are protecting the valuable data from your business.
If your team works remotely, then it makes even more sense to get a password manager like 1Password.
Probably the biggest benefit of a password manager to a small business or team is the ability to share a password across the organization. Let's say you want to share the account information for your social media management software with other team members for social posting. With a password manager like 1Password, you'll just move the information into a "shared vault" to share across the organization—or a smaller shared vault to share with select members.
And if your team works remotely, then it makes even more sense to get a password manager like 1Password.
What makes a "Teams" account with 1Password unique?
The 1Password Teams account is a moderately-priced business-like account that has all of the features most small teams or organizations will need. It's not as comprehensive as a Business account and does not allow you to have as many team members on the account. It's basically 1Password's attempt at offering a business-style password manager at a price that most small organizations can afford. And it's currently the only password manager that you can use with your Apple watch.
Differences from a Business account
With a 1Password Teams account, you have limited storage capacity per user (1 GB) and can only add 5 guest accounts beyond the team accounts. Business accounts also have VIP support and the ability for each team member to have their own family account at no additional charge.
This is the name that you want to call your account. In all likelihood, you'll want your 1Password team account name to be the name of your organization, unless you're getting multiple team accounts for different divisions.
Write your team name.
Write the email address for your company.
Your email should be the email address for your company—one that most of the team has access to, for example—or the account for the person who will delegate the password sharing on 1Password.
