There is nothing we appreciate more than seeing Bitwarden community members help other users by answering their questions or offering best practice tips. Here is a recent exchange from members of the Bitwarden community on Reddit:
u/sanjosanjo on Reddit asked:
“Family plan with up to 6 users: does that mean 6 different vaults?”
u/djasonpenney responded with:
“A Family is essentially an Organization with six members. With a Free or Premium plan you create a very limited Organization that allows you to share with one other person.
The basic element of sharing is a Collection. You move a vault entry into a Collection, and then people you have shared that Collection with can see that entry.”
