Send Privacy

Category: Bitwarden Send
On this page:

    Protect the contents of your Send by optionally configuring a password for access so that no unintended recipients can see the contained information, and/or to hide your email from recipients. For text Sends, you can also optionally require recipients to toggle visibility to prevent exposure to unintentional onlookers.

    The Password, Hide Email, and Hide Text options are configurable from the Create New Send view, or from the Edit Send views at any time prior to the Send’s deletion.

    Send Passwords

    For any Send, you may configure a password that recipients will be required to enter in order to access its contents. Password-protecting a Send is a good way to ensure the contents of a Send aren’t exposed to unintended recipients:

    Once you password-protect a Send, you won’t be able to view the configured password again, however you can change or remove it at any time:

    Change Send Passwords

    You can change a Send’s password at any time from the Edit Send view. Changing a Send’s password will not require you to enter the previous password. When changing a Send’s password, the Password field will change to New Password:

    Remove Send Passwords

    You can remove a Send’s password at any time using the Remove Password menu option. Removing a Send’s password will not require you to enter the previous password.

    Hide Email

    Tip

    For Enterprise Organizations, the availability of this option can be set using an Enterprise Policy.

    By default, Send objects will display the email address of the Sender to recipients:

    Sender Email Visible
    Sender Email Visible

    Toggle the Hide my email address from recipients option to remove your email address from the Send object. Send recipients can still validate the trustworthiness of of expected Sends by cross-referencing the Send link with their Sender. Hidden-email Send objects will issue a warning to recipients encouraging them to do so:

    Sender Email Hidden
    Sender Email Hidden

    Hide Text

    For text Sends, toggle the When accessing the Send, hide the text by default option to require recipients to Toggle Visibility in order to see its contents. Hiding the text on a Send is a good way to ensure the contents of a Send aren’t exposed to unintentional onlookers:
