Check out this blog to celebrate the winners of the Security's Got Talent short video competition! This contest closed August 13, 2023.
Welcome to the Bitwarden Security’s Got Talent short video competition! This contest entails submitting a 1 minute video explaining how using Bitwarden has improved or changed your life. In a world where the average person has tens, if not hundreds, of passwords, we don’t think it’s hyperbole to recognize the role password managers can play in bringing some much-needed sanity, peace of mind, and efficiency to our online lives.
To help keep things as objective as possible, we’ve developed a set of rules governing the contest. Scroll down to learn more about the rules, categories, prizes, and requisite disclaimers.
