Default Organization/Ownership

This is by far the biggest disadvantage of Bitwarden for businesses.

Thanks all, the team is reviewing this one :+1:


Definitely need to feature for our business, but also for my family to set up saving to the shared organization by default.

Thanks, the team is currently exploring this one :+1:


I’m currently trying “Families” plan to share passwords with some family members, and I’ve been really surprised that a “default organization + collection” is not yet a settings. This is really painful to have to set the same organization + collection on (almost) each password creation. I already now that my family members won’t do it by default, so I hope the “default organization + collection” settings will come soon :wink:

Adding another vote and comment for this feature. Having to go into the web interface every other week for all family members to shift everyone’s credentials from the private vault where they inevitably got created to the family org one is just a pain. Being able to set the default vault to store things in seems like a relatively minor feature request, but it does increase usability for people paying for the family plan.

Ditto to all of the above. Please add this option!

Any updates on this? This seems like a necessity for someone using this for a family type org setup.

+1 for this, really important & valuable feature. Hard to believe that this isn’t available as part of the “Premium” membership I pay for.

Hi @bw-admin , any update on “the team is currently exploring this one”?

For your information, 1Password has this kind of “default organisation” setting. And in the following thread you’ll see their users find it’s a really useful feature: Where do you set the default vault for new items? — 1Password Community

I am a potential new user. I have been evaluating the free version for several days and was on the verge of buying it.

I came across this topic because I realised that when my wife stores a new account using her Android smartphone, the owner of that record is only her.

To share that record, I have to act as the owner of the system and move it manually.

I also have to say that the whole system of organising, collecting and managing folders is not at all friendly (and I also suspect the presence of some bugs).

This is really stopping me to go on with Bitwarden because I need a system that actually helps me in family password management.

As others have mentioned, this is a key capability for any 2 or more people to want to share most (or all) of their passwords. There needs to be a workflow where the default storage is shared. Lack of this capability is preventing us from purchasing Bitwarden.

As all the other people who have voted, for us if we want to use Bitwarden in our company we need this feature.

Any update on this feature request?

Hey @bw-admin, any updates on this feature? It is a must-have for families. Thanks!
