Password manager - share with spouse?

Password manager - share with spouse?

Michael_Glapa
Explorer | Level 3

I am interested to learn the best practice for avoiding the situation where my spouse and I have a joint bank account.  When the bank requires that the password be updated, one of us will complete the update process.  Later, the other spouse attempts to login with their Dropbox password app, and it fills the older (now invalid) password.  Is their a technique where I can use the dropbox password manager to keep our passwords synchronized and up to date?

Hey @Michael_Glapa, welcome to our Community! 

Which platform do you use for Dropbox Passwords

Also, when you update the bank information, do you do that from the same device you're using Passwords on? 

Let me know more, and we'll take it from there.

By platform, I think you mean Apple?  My wife and I are both using iPhones along with her MacBook and my iMac desktop system.  I can look up the exact OS versions if you need. We update regularly, so they are usually running the current version.  I also use an iPad.

 

thank you,

And also, updating the password at the bank happens from any of the devices, whichever one we’re using at the time.  This isn’t a problem I’m encountering with one bank.  It’s an ongoing problem with many sites and systems where we both need to access the same vendor sites where we are using the same login name.

Hi @Michael_Glapa, there isn't a direct method to update the password on another Dropbox Passwords account, aside from doing it manually. 

If you wish, you can suggest this change for others to vote on, so the dev team can look into this in future!
