Bitwarden Information

Bitwarden logo


Bitwarden is an industry leading open source password management solution for individuals, teams, and business organizations. EMU maintains a limited number of licenses for Bitwarden that are available to full-time employees upon request. 

Why use a password manager?

Password managers allow you to protect all of your passwords with a single secure master password. Since you only have to remember one password, you can create strong random passwords unique to every site you visit. Remembering all of these passwords without a password manager would be all but impossible. 

Besides being convenient, password managers help prevent password reuse which is often the cause of data breaches. They also make your passwords available wherever you have internet access - and even  offline - once you have configured these location settings.

Is Bitwarden secure?

Bitwarden uses zero trust architecture to ensure that no one - not even Bitwarden - has access to the data stored in their encrypted vault. Their use of modern encryption technology is resistant to even specialized encryption cracking hardware.

Does Bitwarden support sharing?

Bitwarden allows passwords to be shared between members of the EMU organization, and for a collection of passwords to be shared with a specific group.

Can I use Bitwarden on a mobile device?

Bitwarden has applications for both iOS and Android that can be used to automatically fill password information.

If you enable biometrics or a PIN on your mobile device, you will not need to enter your password every time you use Bitwarden.
