Upgrade from Individual to Organization

This article will guide existing individual Password Manager users (Free or Premium) through the process of transitioning to an organizations plan (Free, Families, Teams, or Enterprise) in order to start securely sharing data from organizations with friends, family, co-workers, a department, or an entire company.

Start your organization

Complete the following steps to start your organization:

  1. Log in to the Bitwarden web app and select the New organization button:

    New organization
    New organization
  2. On the New Organization screen, enter an Organization name for your new organization and the Billing email we can reach you at.


    Paid organizations (Families, Teams, or Enterprise) have a 7-day free trial built in. We won't charge you until your trial is over. You can cancel your subscription at any time in the Settings tab of your organization.

  3. If you are creating an organization on behalf of a business:

    • Check the This account is owned by a business checkbox.

    • Provide your Business name.

  4. In the Choose your plan section, select which type of organization to create. Options include:

    • Free: For testing or personal users to share with one other user. Learn more.

    • Families: For personal use, to share with family & friends. Learn more.

    • Teams: For businesses and other team organizations. Learn more.

    • Enterprise: For businesses and other large organizations. Learn more.


    Paid organizations (Families, Teams, or Enterprise) include premium features for all enrolled users. For more information about premium features, see Password Manager Plans.

  5. If you selected a paid organization, enter the following information:

    • For Teams or Enterprise, enter the number of User Seats you need. Seats will be added if you exceed this number, unless you specify a limit.

    • For Families, Teams, or Enterprise, enter the amount of Additional Storage (GB) you need. Your plan comes with 1 GB of shared encrypted file attachments, and you can add additional storage later if needed.

    • For Teams or Enterprise, select whether you'd like to be billed annually or monthly. Other organization types may only be billed annually.

    • For any paid organization, enter your Payment Information.
