Bitwarden launches Send secure text and file share service
The developers behind the Bitwarden login and password storage service just launched a new text and file sharing solution named Send to securely share information directly with anyone.
Bitwarden Send is designed around sharing information that needs to stay confidential, especially in an enterprise context. Featuring AES-256 bit end-to-end encryption, Send allows for secure information transmission across many forms, including text, documents, and other files that can contain, for example, access credentials or in development product information. Anything shared can be set to automatically delete after a maximum of 31 days.
Bitwarden states that "57% of IT decision makers use unencrypted methods to share passwords." Send targets these teams and individuals in order to ensure security best practices. In order to meet users where they are, Bitwarden Send is supported wherever Bitwarden can run, including desktop, mobile, web browser extensions, and via Bitwarden's command line interface.
The Bitwarden Send service is now available to all Bitwarden users, with an official help guide available detailing every aspect. Free Bitwarden accounts can use Send's secure text sharing feature, and every single paid plan, including the personal premium plan at $10 a year, can use both text and file sharing.
