Can two logins be tied to one account?
I'm new and want to start using this tool with my wife. Can we have two logins accessing one account?
Hi Purple Stallion ! Welcome to You Need A Budget!
In order to share your budget with a partner, you can share your YNAB credentials or you can connect your YNAB account to your Google logins in My Account. That way, you can both access YNAB and make real-time changes!

The multi-user capability in YNAB is a joke. It's still a single account. No access control whatsoever. Effectively, it's like having two valid passwords instead of one. The "secondary" password is revocable, but that's about the extent of it.
Practically speaking, it's the same as sharing a single password -- that is revocable as well by simply changing the password and not telling the other person.
