Hello rusmikle,
It's not easy to answer the questions without knowing:
  • Is your Kaspersky application licence for 1 device or more?
  • Is Kaspersky Password Manager installed on more than 1 device?
  • Do your family members know your Kaspersky Master Password?
  • Do your family members have their own https://my.kaspersky.com/ account or is your account the only one?
Please let us know?
Thanks!

Hello rusmikle,
Just a bit more info for you:

Even if you have a multi-device licence for a primary Kaspersky application, e.g. KAV, KIS, KTS, the KPM module shipped with the primary application is bonded to the single licence, not shareable. In other words, 1 primary K application licence shared across multiple devices not not offer separate, configurable KPM vaults.

For each family member to have a private password vault it's necessary to install a separate password manager for each person...
That means, either installing a free version of KPM (for each person) or installing a paid version of KPM (for each person)...
Free version has restrictions/limitations:
"The Free version of Kaspersky Password Manager does everything the Premium version does, but it only allows you to store a maximum total of 15 entries. That’s a maximum total of 15 passwords and confidential documents – like your passport, driver’s license and bank cards – combined. Which means it only offers you limited password storage, and limited storage for your personal data too."

  • To answer the question: "Can the rest of my family access my passwords?":
Yes, if they know the KPM Master password and there's only 1 KPM vault.

Thanks!
