Send login - select "Send" from a login entry to share a login with a third party

Send Login

When viewing a login, add option that allows it to be sent to another party.
I have had to manually copy paste usr/pwd details so many times to other parties, it seems like many others would have this issue also.

It just sends the credentials via the SEND feature, and you can set the normal expiry etc. if needed.
It saves time copying and pasting the creds into an email.
Added benefit of having the encryption/expiry options of Send

Just to clarify the user is looking for a way to quickly use the SEND encryption to send an item detail without, copying and pasting various fields which is a PITA.

My suggestion to not clutter the interface is to put a CREATE SEND on the top of the edit item menu.

  1. open the item to edit.
  2. click CREATE SEND (icon)
  3. this will open the send item as a text, with the following items prefilled.
    Login Items:
    Name
    Username
    Password
    URI 1
    Notes:

Card Items:
ITEM INFORMATION
Name
Cardholder Name
Number
Expiration
Security Code

  1. End user can then edit info as appropriate.

Thanks for clarifying! That’s perfect

I was about to suggest exactly the same. This combination of the great new Send feature with the existing vault seems like a very obvious win. @tgreer Is this on your radar?

I don’t understand why it was not already integrated in Bitwarden app.
It’s a must have feature !

We agree it will be a great addition, but sending items vault > vault requires a great deal more work, and an encryption waltz if you will :slight_smile:

Hey
It would be nice if we could share bitwarden entries using bitwarden send from the entry itself,
So if I have the (insert streaming service here) entry open I can click a button that creates a “Send” with those credentials in, so I don’t have to manually copy-paste the data back and forth between the “Send” item and the password entry.

Couldn’t agree more. We have successfully replaced all our old disorganised methods of WhatsApp/ texts/ dictating over phone with bitwarden send, which is great, but more tedious than necessary. Pre-populating a send with username, password and URL would save lots of time and avoid possibility of mis-pasting (ie pasting the incorrect password from a previous, stale copy-password action)

I got in touch via email and Sugianto recommended me to come after this feature here.

I’ll paste the text within the email I’ve sent to the tech support asking for the feature.

Most of my relatives really don’t care about digital security. Not at all. I tried to convince them many times, even wrote an article talking about it (endorsing Bitwarden and 2FA as well, you can see it here: Gerenciadores de Senhas - o que são e como podem me salvar de situações caóticas – Telegraph (in Portuguese)), but they don’t really care at all.

I was thinking of an “easy” (yet unsafe) way to share logins/credentials that I keep in my vault for the lay people that is.

I know your goal is to aim to enable security for everyone, but these people are die hard on their choices.

I was thinking of having a built-in feature to share as plain text.

Example:

Go to login > view > click the context menu > share as plain text > open the share picker or copy the content to the clipboard.

That would be more or less in this format:

Login: [login/credential name/label, e.g. “Mail.com - John Doe”]
Username: [login/username, e.g. “[email protected]”]
Password: [password text, e.g. “somethingstr0nggoeshere.”]
Notes: [additional notes with line breaks]

I think that’s more than enough to take care of that kind of job.

What do you say? Is that planned? I know that’s indeed not a good idea to be done, but it would take care of the job to share with “jumpy” people.

That’s it. I hope this can be a good thing for a future update and feature.

Why cant we just click a button and export a record (login/pass) straight to Send?
Send was build to share passwords, why is it not integrated to make it easier?
Why do we have to copy each pass, login etc, manually.

exporting to something like this:

I wouldn’t say that - sure, you can use it to share passwords. You can use it to securely send text and files. I use it mainly for secure file sharing. That said, it’s a good idea for those that need to share credentials.

+1 for this feature request.

The client often asks for account loggins.
I have to copy-past to notepad, then copy-past to send.
As the Firefox widget collapses when I switch the application, I rage and search again for the entry. ^^’
(Lately, I sending passwords directly by email, as it is less painful. This is a bad behaviour.)

I have to admit, as I use Send exclusively to share passwords, it is surprising that it is not implemented yet.

Came here to suggest this, glad it’s already on the radar. Every time I want to log in to a personal account on my work laptop, I wish for this. I always end up typing in the long and random passwords, because it’s less of a hassle than to create a Send.

It would be great if the standard settings could be predefined in the preferences, so it would be like „create Send from login“ → instantly the share menu opens (speaking of mobile). No typing of any kind should be necessary.
