Frequently asked questions: Sharing


What permissions does a user gain to a shared password or identity?


The user will gain full access to that password or identity. He or she will be able to view it, make his or her own changes, delete it, or share it with other users.


Is it possible to give a user partial permissions (such as read-only access) to a password or identity?


No, this is not currently possible.


Are passwords or identities shared by default when they are created?


No. In order to protect your data, passwords and identities are never shared by default. You must explicitly share passwords and identities if you want other users to have access to them.


I need to share a large number of passwords. Is there an efficient way to do this?


Yes, Password Vault supports bulk sharing operations. See Change sharing permissions for multiple items at once.
