What trust means to Bitwarden
Trust defines the ability for Bitwarden to lead in password management and is fundamentally rooted in the belief that words must align with action. It is imperative to the Bitwarden mission of helping everyone stay safe online. Let’s explore what that means!
Community and open source go hand in hand at Bitwarden with approaches to software development, validation, and distribution. Trust is upheld by the community and built on the fact that anyone can see, analyze, test, and validate the quality of the Bitwarden source code at any time. Curious how this plays out? Head over to GitHub, Twitter, Reddit, or our community forum to see it in action - one dynamic community with limitless ideas and innovation that holds Bitwarden to a high bar.
Zero knowledge encryption means that Bitwarden cannot view a user’s master password, or access their vault items. End-to-end encryption means that all user data and passwords are encrypted when they leave any Bitwarden client device - there is no such thing as unencrypted vault data on Bitwarden systems. Unlike other password managers that can view users’ URLs stored in vaults, Bitwarden makes no compromise. Zero knowledge encryption is a cornerstone to product development.
In addition to GDPR and SOC 2, Bitwarden invests in annual third party audits, security assessments, and other compliance frameworks such as Privacy Shield, HIPAA, and CCPA. All reports are available on the Bitwarden compliance page.
Validation from trusted industry sources adds an independent perspective. More are listed in the Bitwarden media spotlight.
