I understand BitWarden supports 2FA for BitWarden itself but does it support 2FA for the site passwords? Kind of like 1Password? When I add a site to BitWarden can I add the site’s 2FA/MFA details so BitWarden will tell me the 6 digit code?
Yes it does. You can add in the 2FA code in the TOTP field for a site and it will generate the 6 digit password.
For sites with 2FA, I’ll use the Ctrl-Shift-L to populate my login credentials and when the 2FA prompt comes up, you can hit Ctrl-V (Bitwarden copies the 2FA code to your clipboard).
Awesome. Thank you!
This feature does require a paid premium / enterprise membership, just FYI in case you find it missing from your interface.
Yah. I ended up buying a license. Haven’t migrated over from LastPass yet. Will do that this weekend.
Of course, putting your 2FA keys into your password manager sacrifices a significant security protection in return for convenience. It isn’t really two-factor any more, just two-step.
It’s ironic that one of the “advantages” of a premium account is the ability to weaken your security.
That is true. I need to digest the implications of that for a bit. I feel like maybe these days with everything on your cell phone, even your 2FA app, if someone can get into your phone then you’re SOL anyway.
