Passwordless authentication in general means authenticating a user identity without requiring a password.

For enterprises seeking to adopt passwordless, IT leaders from across the industry are recommending steps you can take today that will set your business up for success in the future.

Have you been pwned?

We hear about data breaches all the time, but have you ever wondered if you've been a victim? The truth is, most of us have.

Why use a HIPAA-compliant Password Manager?

As more healthcare providers move to electronic records and other technologies, it's imperative for patient medical information to be protected. If you're using Bitwarden to store your electronic Protected Health Information, rest assured that Bitwarden is HIPAA compliant and, as an end-to-end encrypted platform, cannot view or decrypt patient records or any data in your vault. Learn more about the value of choosing a HIPAA-compliant password manager by visiting our blog.
