    Effectively managing the items in your Vault is key to making sure that you secure and have seamless access to your information, and can safely share information with friends, family, teams, and colleagues.

    Bitwarden can store 4 types of items in your Vault:

    Add a Vault Item

    You can add items to your Vault from the Bitwarden Web Vault or any client application. Look for a Add icon to add an item to your Vault. There are 4 types of items you can add to your Vault.

    All item types can be given:

    • A Name that makes them easily identifiable to you inside your Vault.
    • Notes related to the item in a freeform text input.
    • Custom Fields for inputs like security questions or PINs (for more information, see Custom Fields).
    Tip

    You can also import items into your Vault from a variety of password management solutions. For more information, see Import Data to your Vault.

    Folders and Favorites

    Items in your personal Vault can be organized into Folders, or marked as Favorites. For more information, see Folders and Favorites.

    Delete a Vault Item

    You can delete any Vault items directly from the Web Vault or from any client application:

    • In the Web Vault, select Delete from the hover-over Gear dropdown.
    • On Mobile Applications, open the item and tap Delete in the Menu.
    • On Desktop Applications and Browser Extensions, open the item and select the Delete icon.

    Before an item is deleted, you will be prompted to confirm deletion. Once confirmed, the item will be placed into the Trash.

    Items in the Trash

    Deleted items are sent to the Trash, where they remain for 30 days after deletion. Once 30 days have lapsed, the item will be permanently deleted and not recoverable.

    In the Trash, you can Restore an item to your Vault or Permanently Delete it prior to the 30-day waiting period:

    You can clone any Vault item that you have Ownership of, if you wish to create a duplicate of the item.

    • In the Web Vault, select Clone from the hover-over Gear dropdown.
