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!

    If you have a moment, take a look at our Join Forces Guide—we offer a number of tips and tricks on budgeting together. 🙂 Let us know if we can do anything to help get you started!

  • Security issues aside, I'd like to have two accounts and one budget so we can see who logged what in the budget.

      Sea Green Device Not possible with what's currently implemented. The secondary id is initial authentication only.

      Once authenticated, it's the same logical entity editing the budget regardless of how that entity was authenticated.

      Sea Green Device Understood, and I can relate. It was widely requested immediately following launch years ago. I think most people are fooled by the appearance of "multi-user" access provided by Google authentication and go on about their business. Thus, there's not a significant demand for the feature.

      Still, you might fill out a feature request and hope for the best. Feedback in these posts doesn't go to anyone who makes decisions.

  • 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.
