  • No matter what device you use, Bitwarden has you covered. It offers native apps for Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, and iOS. Its browser extension supports the expected Chrome, Edge, Firefox.
  • Bitwarden, Inc., parent company of 8bit Solutions LLC, brings you Bitwarden. Bitwarden is the easiest and safest way to store all of your logins and passwords while conveniently keeping them synced between all of your devices. Password theft is a serious problem. The websites and apps that you use are under attack every day.

Hi, I'm a happy user of Bitwarden on Safari 13; as my Macbook prompts me to upgrade macOS, and this means upgrading to Safari 14, I would like to know if Bitwarden is still compatible, thank you. Bitwarden comes in desktop, web app, and browser versions, with the latter supported in most popular web browsers. The web app provides the most functionality and flexibility, making it easy to access your vault online, whether or not Bitwarden is installed locally, and providing easy access to two-factor authentication, reports, and organizing tools.

Everyone needs a password manager – and these days they’re ten-a-penny, offering most of the core functionality you need from easy secure password management and generation to integration into your browser and ability to sync across multiple devices.

What makes Bitwarden worthy of your attention then? For us, the fact it’s open-source is a major attraction. That means its code is transparent and easily accessible, but the company also uses professional auditors to reveal weaknesses for it to fix. There are paid solutions for both families (just $1/month) and businesses to help fund it, but ultimately all the major functionality is completely free.


It works across a wide range of devices and platforms. The link above will install the universal app version of Bitwarden, which allows you to browse, manage and easily copy your login information to the clipboard for pasting into other apps including your browser. You can also access your vault online through the web vault – typically when on a shared computer, but as always be careful about how secure that computer is before trusting it.

To simplify browser logins, however, we recommend you install one of the many available browser add-ons, currently available for all major browsers, including Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Edge and Opera.

Crucially, Bitwarden seems to have the security aspects right too: your vault is synced between devices over the cloud, but using end-to-end 256-bit AES encryption that deliberately prevents Bitwarden or anyone who tried to compel it to open up your vault. You can also enable 2FA for additional security.

In use, Bitwarden is simple enough to use – the browser add-ons help simplify the process of adding existing items to your vault, but a minor criticism is that you can’t easily link generated passwords to the account you’ve just created – either you must create the login manually, or log out and back in before Bitwarden offers to save it for you. But it’s a minor blemish on a password manager that should be enjoying much greater popularity than it currently does.
