LastPass Family and Master Passwords

I've spent some time looking through the documentation and I don't see this question addressed:

If I subscribe to LastPass Family and add 5 family members, do we each set up and use our OWN master password, or does MY master password become everyone's master password? I suspect the former, but need to be sure before adding anyone to my LastPass account.

Thanks!

The accounts would be separate. I don't know how many in the group can be designated as administrators.

Re: LastPass Family and Master Passwords

Yes, I understand the accounts would be separate. I'm wondering whether there would be separate master passwords for each account, or whether my master password would be known by all family members. And from what I can tell, I could designate everyone as a family "manager." Which prompts another question: would all family managers share a single master password, or would each manager manage his/her own master password?

The accounts would have separate passwords. The setup is very similar to how businesses use LastPass.
