    This article will guide you through the process of inviting or removing users from your Organization.

    Teams and Enterprise Organizations can sync Bitwarden to an existing user directory to automatically add or remove new users using the Bitwarden Directory Connector. For more information, see Syncing users and groups with a directory.

    Note

    Free Organizations and Families Organizations have a maximum number of users; 2 and 6 respectively.

    Teams Organizations and Enterprise Organizations must ensure that there are available users seats for their account before inviting users. For more information, see Add or Remove User Seats for your Organization.

    Invite Users

    Warning

    For Enterprise Organizations, Bitwarden recommends configuring Enterprise Policies prior to inviting users to ensure compliance on-entrance to your Organization. For more information, see Enterprise Policies.

    Complete the following steps to invite users to your Organization:

    1. Login to your Web Vault and open your Organization.
    2. In your Organization, open the Manage tab and select People from the left menu.
    3. On the People screen, select the Invite User button.

      Select Invite User
      Select Invite User
    4. On the Invite User panel:
      • Enter the Email address where new users should receive invites. You can add up to 20 users at a time by comma-separating email addresses.
      • Select the User Type to be applied to new users. User Type will determine what permissions these users will have at an Organizational level. For more information, see User Types and Access Control.
      • Select the Access Control to be applied to new users. Access Control will determine which Collections these users will have access to, and what level of access within those Collections. For more information, see User Types and Access Control.
    5. Click Save to invite the designated users to your Organization.

    Once users have accepted the invitation, you will need to Confirm Invited Users.

    Invited Users

    Invited users will receive an email from Bitwarden asking them to join the Organization. Clicking the Join Organization Now button in the email invitation will open a screen prompting users to Log In or Create Account.

    Confirm Invited Users

    Once a user has accepted the invitation to join the Organization, you’ll need to Confirm their acceptance.

    On the People screen for your Organization, users who have accepted invitations will have an Accepted status indicator next to their email address. Users who are invited but have not yet accepted will have an Invited status indicator next to their email address.

    Confirm an Accepted user by hovering over the user, selecting the gear dropdown, and selecting Confirm from the dropdown menu.

    Selecting Confirm will open a panel asking you to verify the user’s fingerprint phrase. For added security, ask the user to verify the fingerprint phrase before confirming them into your Organization. Once confirmed, the user will have access to all assigned Collections within the Organization.

    Remove A User

    Complete the following steps to remove a user from your Organization:

    1. Login to your Web Vault and open your Organization.
    2. In your Organization, open the Manage tab and select People from the left menu.
    3. On the People screen, hover over the user you want to remove and select the gear dropdown.
    4. From the gear dropdown, select the Remove option.
