April 2022 Spotlight: Account Switching on Bitwarden
The Account Switching feature rollout continues with newly released availability in the Bitwarden mobile and desktop applications. Users can now serve a RESTful API from the Command Line Interface (CLI), preserving an end-to-end encrypted environment.
In the spirit of continued support for developers, a new ‘serve’ command for the Bitwarden Command Line Interface (CLI) makes integrating workflows easier. It spins up a local web server providing a RESTful API to the CLI allowing operations on data within an encrypted vault. You can learn more about this exciting new feature in the latest release blog.
Bitwarden desktop and mobile apps now have the ability to quickly switch between Bitwarden accounts, with multiple accounts logged in at once.
