Link share

1Password users can now securely share files with a link

We describe below how to use the sharing tool:

  1. First, select the item you want to share, open its menu and select “Share”.
  2. Then choose to set an expiration date on the link (optional) and select who the item will be available to
  3. If your link is limited to one person, verify their email address with a one-time code
  4. Select the “Get link to share” button and share the link with your recipient

File sharing functionality is now available to all 1Password 8 users, but must be enabled by admins for business customers.

Is 1Password the best password manager?

1Passwords’ new sharing features are just the latest example of how the password manager is upgrading its service. The app also recently made improvements to its icons, updated its item templates, and improved large-print support.

Additionally, these developments come just a year after the web extension added an optional dark mode and rolled out support for biometrics like Touch ID.

Thanks to 1Passwords’ well-designed interface, variety of specialized templates, and handy features, we think it’s a great choice of password manager. However, due to its reasonable price and excellent browser plugin, our research suggests that LastPass is actually the better option overall.

However, different companies require different solutions, so if you really want to protect your data in the best possible way, you can browse the best password managers on the market here.
