Getting started as a Families user
Use your personal email (ex. email@example.com) to create an account directly through the Bitwarden self-registration page or from your family Organization's invitation email.
On the create your account screen, you will be prompted to set up a Master Password which you will use to access your vault. Be sure to store this somewhere securely as Bitwarden and your other family members can not reset it for you. Use the Bitwarden Password Generator to help create a strong password or a memorable passphrase.
As a family member, you will be able to store items (logins, cards, identities, and secure notes) in both your individual vault and your family's Organization vault. Your Organization vault allows you to share items with other members of your family through Collections.
Downloading the Bitwarden browser extension will enable you to take advantage of keyboard shortcuts and make your most common tasks a breeze! Use Ctrl/CMD
+ L to autofill. Press the shortcut again to cycle through any other matching logins.
It's best to disable the browser's built-in password manager to ensure that Bitwarden is always your go-to password manager.
Bitwarden allows you to bring your previously saved passwords from a wide variety of other password managers or those saved inside your browser. We have more information on our help site about importing data to your personal vault and your shared Organization vault.
The easiest way to to get familiar with creating new items is to create a login. When using the browser extension, navigate to the site you'd like to save the login for, then select the + Add Item button. You can use the Bitwarden Username and Password Generator to generate a complex password based on your preferences.
At the bottom of the create item dialog, you will be able to specify who owns the new item. Selecting your email will place the item in your personal vault and selecting the name of your Organization will place the item in your team's shared vault.
