Concept of harvest now and decrypt later & Bitwarden

Should I be concerned about using Bitwarden, or any form of E2EE services for that matter, in light of the quantum computer emergence?

Couldn’t a third party actor, whether that be a state-sponsored actors/government agency or independent actors, steal information from Bitwarden right now, and decrypt those data once quantum computers are more developed?

I’m not too well informed, so I’d appreciated any guidance you can provide me.

@kzip Welcome to the forum!

First of all, the prospect of stealing information from Bitwarden, by itself, would not be a trivial undertaking. Theft of a Bitwarden user’s device may be a more likely scenario.

With regards to quantum computing, the threat is largely overblown. Please refer to the two discussion threads linked below.
