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:
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:
Card items can be used to store credit or debit card information:
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:
Secure Notes can be used to store encrypted freeform text for anything you want protected:
You can import items into your Vault from a variety of password management solutions. For more information, see Import Data to your Vault.
Manage Vault Items
You can add, edit, and delete Vault items from any Bitwarden client application:
For more information, refer to our CLI documentation.
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:
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
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.
To clone an item within an Organization, you must clone it from the Organization Vault view, not the Personal Vault view.
