Many password managers offer an Emergency Access feature whereby in the event of something happening to you a family member/trusted friend can gain access to your password vaults. Once you set them up, they can request access. if you do not reject access in whatever number of days you specify, then they gain access. This is a nice assurance that a family member can access your info if something happens to you without having to share your login info with them now.
Could be useful to be able to allow emergency access by agreement through multiple trusted parties or when not logged into any proton ser ices for a long period of time.
This feature is critical.

We need to able to configure this for multiple people on multiple time frames and with selectable items. Not all or nothing. Example: Share selected items with one or more people on a short time frame, then share other selected items on a longer time frame, finally an account take over. Available time frames should extend out at least six months. Notification alert of request for access and prior to grant should be sent via email and text.

Critical for me as I am getting on in years and need to enable certain people to have access should I be unable. This is a function of my current password manager (Nordpass) and my previous one (Roboform).
Having this feature prevents storing your password externally so that your vault is accessible if incapacitated or a person dies. Especially important to a Power of Attorney or Executor of an estate.
