These days, if you don’t use a password manager, chances are you’re using passwords weak enough to be cracked by any hacker. And given the scale of password-based attacks and data breaches, you should consider using a password manager.
Why? Because they not only keep your passwords safe in an encrypted, password-protected vault, but they also include features that can help you create strong, random passwords and even share those entries with other people.
Bitwarden is no stranger to such features. A feature built into this open-source password manager makes it easy to share vault items with teams or family members.
This feature is called Organizations.

With Bitwarden, you create an organization, add members to the organization, and then add vault items that can be viewed by any member. Bitwarden lets you create an organization with a free account, but you’re limited to just two users, including yourself. If you need to share an organization with multiple other people, you will have migrated to one of the paid plans, which include:
Premium $10 per year – advanced 2FA features, emergency access, Bitwarden authenticator and security reports
Families $3.33 per month – up to six users, unlimited collections, 1GB encrypted storage
Teams $3 per user per month – unlimited users and collections, 1GB encrypted storage
Enterprise $5 per user per month – unlimited users and collections, 1GB encrypted storage, SSO authentication
It’s important to understand that Organizations is a separate feature of your Personal Vault. This means that anyone with access to your organization will not have access to your personal vault. These two things are isolated from each other, so anything you save in your Personal Vault is safe.
That said, let’s see how to create an organization in Bitwarden.
You will need a valid Bitwarden account, free or paid, and a web browser.

The user will receive an email allowing him to verify his account. Once done, the user will have access to all vault items that you add to the organization.
And that’s all there is to it with Bitwarden Organizations. Anyone who needs to share passwords with teams, friends, or family members would do well with this feature.
