Ed here at The Self-Hosting Blog. I hope you're having a great week!
This week, LastPass announced that they are feature-locking their free tier. Forcing users to choose whether they want their passwords synced to their computer, or their mobile. Not both.
Since this announcement, there has been a boom in users switching over to open-source alternatives. Bitwarden has seen a huge increase.
Below is a post that I made in August 2020 on how to set up a self-hosted version of Bitwarden Password Manager.
Feel free to get in touch, I'd love to chat with my subscribers. You can find my details on our contact page.
How to self-host Bitwarden Password Manager
Bitwarden is a free and open-source password management service that stores sensitive information such as website credentials in an encrypted vault. The Bitwarden platform offers a variety of client applications including a web interface, desktop applications, browser extensions, mobile apps, and a CLI.
I use Bitwarden as my main password vault. It stores my card details for automating the filling out of payment forms. Saves me from having to find or remember my card details. I also use Bitwarden for storing all of my passwords.
