Bitwarden makes it easy for you to create, store, and access your passwords. Bitwarden stores all of your logins in an encrypted vault that syncs across all of your devices. Since it's fully encrypted before it ever leaves your device, only you have access to your data. Not even the team at Bitwarden can read your data, even if we wanted to.

Free password manager for Mac
There are accounts for everything you do online. It’s tempting to use the same password for every login, which is a huge security risk. If someone manages to find out your password, they can access all your online services.
This is where Bitwarden can help. Bitwarden is a free password management app.
Why is Bitwarden free?
The free version provides only the basic features.
It generates secure passwords when you’re setting up an account, synchronizes your passwords across all your devices, and allows you to keep an unlimited number of items in your secure vault.
Does Bitwarden work with Safari?
Yes, it does, and there’s a Safari extension in the Mac App Store.
Unlike some of Bitwarden’s competitors, the extension is a fully functioning tool, rather than a companion requiring the desktop app to be open too.
Is Bitwarden better than LastPass?
These are two of the best free password managers currently on the market, and each excels in its own different ways.
In terms of security and pricing, Bitwarden is better than Lastpass. Because Bitwarden is open source, it’s constantly being analyzed by security experts around the world, so vulnerabilities are quickly reported and addressed. However, it’s not as intuitive to use as Lastpass, which offers better basic features.
What happens if Bitwarden gets hacked?
Your data is encrypted using 256-bit AES encryption, so it’s already secure before it’s sent to Bitwarden’s servers. To date, Bitwarden’s servers have never been hacked, but even if they were, the encrypted data would be useless. You can further protect your data by storing it on a highly secure private server instead of Bitwarden’s.
How do I use Bitwarden?
It’s very straightforward to get started. Here’s how:
- Create your Bitwarden account, and log in
- Create and organize folders in your vault
- Create your Master Password
- (Optional) Import passwords and credentials that you have stored in other password managers
The Bitwarden paid plan offers excellent security features, so they’re fantastic value for the money. If you want to stick with free apps, both Lastpass and 1Password are excellent alternatives to Bitwarden.
Should you download it?
Yes. The free version of the app is an excellent option with its robust security. It’s great to have the option of hosting your data on your own server.

Bitwarden For Safari
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.
Note that this is the portable version of Bitwarden.
