With the recent mention of Bitwarden on the forums, (due to 1Password angry customers over a update) I thought it would be prudent to create a thread dedicated to Bitwarden, where people can ask questions, receive help, and read reviews about Bitwarden. Bitwarden is free to download and use. There is no mandatory subscription. It is open source software that is available for review on GitHub. The app is also regularly audited by well-known experts in the field. Bitwarden does offer a premium subscription ($10.00 a year) with the following features. You can also find help on the Bitwarden community forums. "Upgrade your personal account to premium and unlock some great additional features. Everything from a free account, plus: 1GB encrypted file storage Two-step login with YubiKey, FIDO U2F, & Duo Password hygiene & vault health reports TOTP authenticator key storage & code gen. Priority customer support" What is YubiKey and Duo ? Even though I already use 1Password and have for many years, I also believe in being prepared at all times. If something happens to password manager A, I want to be able to securely access all my important logins and notes in password manager B. Never ever rely on only 1 password manager. Always have a backup plan, not to mention a backup of your latest backup password file. This thread isn't about bashing 1Password or trying to say Bitwarden is better than all the rest. This thread is about the exchange of information and ideas related to online security using Bitwarden. If you have questions about Bitwarden, please ask. I know there are several members here who have been using Bitwarden for a while. If you have practical Bitwarden experience, please share, as it may save someone else some time and frustration when setting up and using Bitwarden for the first time etc. I think it would also be beneficial to provide honest "pro and con" posts about the various features of Bitwarden. If you are a current 1Password user, (or the user of some other manager) I have found that it is much better to manually input your information into Bitwarden, versus importing via the cv or Pif file. Importing the information leaves your newly created vault in textual shambles, and you will spend far more time trying to clean up the mess, than importing manually. Bitwarden does provide information on manually editing your current manager files with the Bitwarden format source file, for those who want to go that route. I have Bitwarden installed on my iMac, iPhone, and both of my iPad mini 5's. I have YubiKey authentication required for the iPhone and iMac, and I am using Authy for the numerical codes for the iPad minis, since they don't support NFC in this manner.
