The “Send” functionality does not solve this need at all.
I found it even quite useless because it does not require authentication at the receiving end. So anyone with the link can see the secret. The Passwort-Protection does not help since, I would need to share the access password along with sending the link.
Using E-Mail is similar (un)safe.
Seems like you have not gotten a clear picture of send.
A Send can be protected with a password. Access limit can also be set. So the link will expire after the access count has exceeded.
I would suggest you to watch Bitwarden Send: Secure Text and File Transfer - YouTube
Hello @vachan thanks, I have watched the video. It did not tell me anything new though.
Maybe to phrase my thoughts differently:
Even if I would use Password Protection and Access Limit, I still would need to send the Link together with the Password over an insecure channel (Email, Slack, …) to the receiver. If any Man-In-The-Middle would intercept this communication, he or she could steal the well-encryped secret.
Fair point, though, if possible, sharing the password via phone call, or separate, relatively secure channel should be good for all but the most critical secrets
Maybe in the future Send can be directly sent to a bitwarden user through the client itself ?
Like if you add my email address to a send. I will automatically get the Send on all my client apps.
I did not think about that.
This would be a great feature. Τhe best way to implement it imo, would be by having user and group permissions to be set for each item instead of collection. This is the most important disadvantage of BitWarden for our organization.
This would be great. The ability to share an item/folder/collection with a single other Bitwarden hosted user. This would be great on a personal level with family/friends, but also I have already run into several options where I wanted to take an item from my “Business” folder in my private vault and share it with another Bitwarden user in our org without removing my ownership and sending it to a collection.
This is a big one that’s blocking us moving. There’s many situations where a secret belongs to a collection but it needs to be shared with +1 or +2 users in the organization as well. Not justified having collection hell to accomodate all variations of this. Need to be able to share to a collection + individual org users. User to user as well.
@tgreer It might be wishful thinking, but is this part of the “Item Sharing” listed on the roadmap for 2022?
@sclark indeed! We have some other cool stuff coming along with it, too
I’m excited for this! I’ve been impressed with Bitwarden’s continuous growth/improvement since joining.
P.S. That was a Handel “Hallelujah” not to be confused with any less energetic hallelujah songs out there.
Hopefully this feature will come in 2022.
To me, approach where only collections may be shared looks like a biggest largest and scariest misconception in design.
