    What are Organizations?

    Organizations relate Bitwarden users together for secure sharing of Logins, Notes, Cards, and Identities. Creating an Organization opens an Organization Vault that exists alongside your Personal Vault. To share items in your Organization Vault, you can invite users to join your Organization.

    Organization Vaults are organized into Collections, much like how Personal Vaults can be organized into Folders. Unlike your Personal Vault, items in the Organization Vault must be placed in a Collection and will be accessible by anyone who is allowed access to that Collection.

    You can create an Organization by selecting the New Organization button. For help creating your Organization, see Create an Organization.

    Once you’ve created your Organization, invite users to start sharing. Invited users can open the Organization Vault at any time from the top-right Organizations card, or quickly access their assigned Collections from the left Filters card. For help inviting users to your Organization, see Add or Remove Users.

    Types of Organizations

    There are a few different types of Organizations available. When you create your Organization, you will be prompted to select one of the following options:

    Free Organizations

    Free Organizations allow two users to securely share in up to two Collections. For more information about what features are included in a Free Organization, see About Bitwarden Plans.

    Families Organizations

    Families Organizations allow 6 users to securely share in unlimited Collections. For more information about what features are included in a Families Organization, see About Bitwarden Plans.

    Teams Organizations

    Teams Organizations allow unlimited users (billed Per User Per Month) to securely share in unlimited Collections and offer a suite of operational tools like Event Logs. For more information about what features are included in a Teams Organization, see About Bitwarden Plans.

    Enterprise Organizations

    Enterprise Organizations allow unlimited users (billed Per User Per Month) to securely share in unlimited Collections and add enterprise-only features like Login with SSO to Bitwarden’s suite of operational tools. For more information about what features are included in an Enterprise Organization, see About Bitwarden Plans.

    Organizations vs. Premium

    Organizations unlock access to secure sharing between users who are members of that Organization.

    Premium Individual plans unlock premium password security and management features, including advanced 2FA options, the Bitwarden Authenticator (TOTP), encrypted file storage, and more. Premium Individual does not include secure data sharing.

    Paid Organizations (Families, Teams, or Enterprise) automatically include premium features (advanced 2FA options, Bitwarden Authenticator (TOTP), etc.) for every user enrolled in the Organization.
