Password expiration date

Any updates or road map on when we can have this or if it is happening or not ?? I would appreciate if dev team can just response once to this request, and give us an idea on what is the plan for this request.

This is on our long term roadmap, but not scheduled for dev currently.


@tgreer Why long term? What’s the point of saving lots of passwords and remember to renew them manually? IMHO This seems a red flag for migration from Keepass as using long life passwords is not a good practice. Thanks

When I say “long term” I mean it’s not up for development right now, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be done until 2025 either :slight_smile:

Everyone has their own password change and management workflows, and the spirit of the request is really just to serve as a friendly reminder that you have passwords that will expire, and roughly when they will . In the end it’s up to the user to practice good password hygiene and to the system to require password changes at required intervals.


is there any update on this request?

The presence of a reminder for expired passwords, but for example also for expired credit cards, it’s a feature that a password manager should really have there as basics.

Would be good to have an update on when you plan to implement this. It’s a more than 2 years old request.

Also, if you would please give some transparency on what other features are you working on currently, that would probably be helpful too to keep us users in the loop.

I tested a lot of password Managers and I can’t remember if any of those “big ones” have this feature included. :confused:

May be this roadmap could help a bit.

Not sure what you mean by “a lot” because KeePass, one of the four most widely used password managers according to Consumer Reports, however DOES include this extremely useful, and incredibly basic feature.

Many companies require you to update passwords regularly, as do some sites. A way to track and remind yourself through your password manager would be incredibly useful. Apply the same feature to other objects Bitwarden stores, such as credit cards, would also be rather useful.

Thanks for remembering me on KeePass. This was my first password manager many years ago. And you are right KeePass is full of features other password managers don’t have. :slight_smile:

I would use this… I have logins to work stuff that regulatory agencies have decided that I need to change my password every 30 days.

Having a “countdown” would be nice to know when I need to change.


I would love to see this feature implemented.

Expired entries should also have special icon or a icon-overlay over the regular icon.

KeePass displays an red X icon for expired entries:

KeePassXC displays the original icon and adds a small overlay-icon:

IMHO prefer the overlay icon of KeePassXC because here you still can recognize the entry by its icon.
It is up to you if you strike out the name, but this visual presentation would be useful to recognize expired entries faster.

But why is it even on a long term roadmap? This is just a basic feature that also increases password security a lot let alone that a lot of companys require you to have expire dates and for me it seems that it isnt event that big of an update than other things we got in shorter amount of time

This would be great for me, too.
A email is not required, just a “some passwords will expire in 14 days or less” with a list passwords dialog as a second message or search result, when i open Bitwarden.
Maybe a “warn x days before expire” on item level - useful for passports eg.

I guess this is not a quick win, but a win.
Anyway, you can script it yourself with bitwarden-cli and custom fields, for those who heavily depend on it.

Hi team, would it be possible to add a timelife for the password created, with an alert when password arrive at expiration.

I’m not sure we could derive the expiration period of a password from a service, but perhaps being able to leverage a “reset interval” / reminder makes sense? Definitely interested to hear everyone’s thoughts on this one!

@tgreer ,Hi,
I do not know what you mean with “reset interval” if we speak about same target, then, it’s fine :wink:
About reminder, if you’ve several account to manage (currently I’ve 50) ,I think it would make sense to get at a reminder least, about when you created the PWD and when you’re supposed to change it…

Understandably so! Yes - basically being able to set when you should change your password on a per-password basis. (i.e. change System A credentials every 90 days, remind me at 85 days)

@tgreer This seems like a duplicate feature request with Password expiration date

Our company needs this feature as well… Seems like an easy no-brainer.
