Passwords are a necessary part of our lives. Whether we're logging in to services like Netflix, Facebook and Google, or using banking apps like Venmo (or even just signing up for email). But as more and more people rely on these services, they need to have access to their passwords at all times—and that means keeping them secure.

While there are plenty of ways to keep your passwords safe and secure (like using two-factor authentication), one tool that can't be overlooked is Bitwarden: a password manager designed specifically for storing sensitive information like usernames, passwords and credit card numbers securely in the cloud so you can access them anywhere from any device

Why use a password manager?

Password managers, such as Bitwarden, are more secure than using the same password on all sites. The most common reason why people lose their passwords is because they write them down or email them to themselves. If you use a password manager, you'll only need to remember one master password that grants access to all of your accounts and passwords. This makes it easier for you to keep track of what's been compromised and how much has been lost in case something happens again.

Password managers also help generate secure passwords by generating random variations based on different words within the same phrase (for example: "my dog's name" vs "the cat's name"). By using this method instead of simply re-using one word over again from previous phrases or names/dates (like birthdays), users can ensure that every time they use one particular phrase/name/date combination, their new password will be totally unique from everything else out there on the web today!

In this article, we'll discuss the benefits of using a password manager, why Bitwarden is great, and how you can use it.

As a password manager, you can use Bitwarden anywhere—and on any device.

You can access your passwords from any computer or browser that supports web browsers (not just Chrome). This means you don't need to worry about whether or not your computer is compatible with Bitwarden; it'll work with whatever browser you have installed on your system. If the website doesn't support WebRTC, then it won't be able to sync with Bitwarden!

You don't have to worry about operating system compatibility either: all of our apps are cross-platform and will work on Windows 10 computers as well as macOS Sierra machines running Apple's latest OS release.

Benefits of using Bitwarden

Bitwarden is a password manager. It allows you to store, manage and auto-fill your passwords in one place.

You can use Bitwarden on all your devices: desktop computer, laptop or tablet; mobile phone; even wearables like smartwatches and fitness trackers!

The security of the software is top notch: it uses 256-bit AES encryption with SHA256 authentication (the same as Google Chrome).

Installing Bitwarden on your desktop

Download the Bitwarden app from the website.

Install it on your computer.

Open the app and create an account by entering your username, email address and password. You will be prompted to set up a master password for your account that is used to access all of your passwords (a good idea!).

If you have not already done so, add all of your websites as sites in this vault by clicking “Add Site” at the bottom of any page where a site can be added like when creating new profiles or creating groups from within groups within groups (this allows users to share common information across multiple accounts).

Installing Bitwarden on your mobile device

To install Bitwarden on your mobile device, follow these steps:

Download the app from the App Store or Google Play.

Open the app and create an account.

Add a password to your vault (you can also add multiple vaults).

You should now see two options: "Add Site" and "Password." Click on either of those buttons so that you can start adding sites to your vault by specifying what they contain in their URL's and names/descriptions fields respectively.


At this point, you should have a basic understanding of the benefits of using Bitwarden as a password manager. If you haven't already installed Bitwarden on your desktop or mobile device, go ahead and give it a try! Once installed, we hope that you'll find it easy to use and convenient in managing your passwords securely.
