This would be useful.
But how would it be secure?
It would probably be a good idea to get the person who shared the password to change it after the share expires?
One example, we got a solar energy consultant to quote us on an expansion of our solar power system and he asked for the login to view our generation stats. The web portal doesn’t provide the ability to export the stats, you have to go view them online, it also only has a single user, no ability to add secondary logins for other users.
We already use Bitwarden to share that login amongst the team who needs access to that information.
There’s no harm that can come from him going there, and I want him to have the info, but I don’t want him to have to install Bitwarden and sign up and then create an organisation and create a collection and have him accept the invite and then approve the acceptance and then share it with him on a permanent basis.
I just want him to have access to it through a link a few times for a week or so, and then when he’s done, I want to be reminded to go change that to something secure again.
Obviously anyone with access to his email or access to that link (perhaps he shares it) will be able to view the login information. - so I don’t see this being a secure feature, it’s more of a simple convenience with a thin layer of security in that the actual password isn’t in clear text in any emails, and won’t be there FOREVER incase his or my email - or backups of that email - is ever compromised.
So to me, in this scenario the reminder to change the details after the share expires is a critical feature.
