    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. There are 4 types of items you can store in your Vault; Logins, Cards, Identities, and Secure Notes:

    Logins

    Login items are most often used to store username and password combinations, and support TOTP seeds for Premium users. Whatever plan you’re on, we recommend giving every Login a URI for easy auto-fill:

    Identities can be used to store billing info, mailing info, or anything else you might need to have access to when filling out online forms:

    Folders and Favorites

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

    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:

    Protect Individual Items

    For any given Vault item, you can activate the Master password re-prompt option from the Add/Edit screen to require verification of your Master Password to access or auto-fill sensitive Vault items:

    Warning

    Master password re-prompt is not an encryption mechanism. This feature is an interface-only guardrail that a sophisticated user may find ways to work around. We recommend never leaving your Vault unlocked when unattended or on a shared workstation.

    Move Items to an Organization

    If you’re a member of an Organization, you can move Vault items to your Organization for sharing with other Organization members. Learn more about Organizations, Collections, and Sharing.

    Clone Vault Items

    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.
    • On Mobile Applications, open the item and tap Clone in the Menu.
    • On Desktop Applications and Browser Extensions, open the item and select the Clone Item option.
    Note

    To clone an item within an Organization, you must clone it from the Organization Vault view, not the Personal Vault view.
