Sharing Passwords With Third Parties | Zoho Vault

Sharing Passwords with Third Parties

You can temporarily share your passwords with third parties, like contractors, or freelancers who do not own a Zoho Vault account or aren't a part of your organization's Zoho Vault setup.

To share your passwords with third parties:

  1. Select a password to share from the Passwords tab.
  2. Click Share, then select the Third-parties tab.
  3. Enter the email address of the third-party user and click Share Password. An email will be sent to the user containing an encrypted link to the password.

  4. An encryption key that will allow the third party user to access the shared password will be generated on your screen. Share this key with your contact separately.


Note 1:  These external users will have View access to your passwords. The password link will be available for up to 72 hours for the users. You can customize the password validity to be anywhere between thirty minutes and 24 hours, after which the access to the link containing your password expires. We recommend that you change the shared password after the shared link expires.
Note 2: This feature is currently available only in our web app.
