Password expiration date

Please add a filed “Expiry Date” where I can define a date when a password has expired (or will expire). I use this in KeePass to mark passwords that have expired.

These password have a red “X” symbol over the Favicon and are not used when I log in via the hotkey.

Totally agree this feature is needed.

I also opened a GitHub issue back in December and it got some votes from people: https://github.com/bitwarden/core/issues/163

I think it is absolutely necessary!

This feature allows to store expired passwords, that are not actively used, but the account is still existing

yes, it’s really needed. I would like to get

  • a flag to mark an account as expired
  • an expiration date or range (like keepass has) and let the account expire automatically
  • a function/tool to expire all accounts at once, as we use Bitwarden in a company and have to change all accounts when someone leave. But it’s not possible to change all the accounts on one day, so I want to mark all as expired and change them in the next few days…

Just some thoughts on the design that I would personally find really useful:

  • Per entry in vault, optional field “password expiration date”. Ideally this date can be set either via a calendar OR by entering a number of days.
    • If an entry has a “password expiration date” in the past, the password field should be the color red
  • In Settings->Options the following should be available
    • Boolean option “Notify via email before passwords expire”
    • Boolean option “Notify via app before passwords expire”
    • Integer option “Number of days before passwords expire to send notification”

This feature should not be for passwords specifically but for each object. If I create a passport object I want it to remind me about the expiry.

How to know if this is going to happen, or not, and if yes, when ??

Bumping this.

Just started looking at switching from KeePass 2 to Bitwarden, and this is kind of surprising that this feature hasn’t already been implemented. It’s a bit disappointing given how polished Bitwarden appears.

I’m currently auditing my online accounts and I have passwords I set years ago, or accounts with duplicate/similar passwords, and these need to be updated. I’m having to do this still in KeePass since I have the ability to mark these accounts as “expired” so I can remember what still needs to be changed.

On another note, many companies and company services require password changes at set intervals (30-60-90 days) and being able to set a reminder that a password will expire soon and should be changed is a pretty helpful feature.

This is a pretty basic and standard feature for a password manager. I also see that this has been requested a couple times on Passport expiration date and Expiration dates . Given that this has been an outstanding request since Mar 2018 (over a year and a half) with 73 votes (currently) across the 3 split requests, it would be nice to see a Bitwarden dev reply to this thread with some input or something. Will this be implemented and can we get a time frame?
