Why does Bitwarden.eu only contact servers in the US?

I use the European Union server of Bitwarden. This means my vault is supposedly stored in Bitwarden.eu, not Bitwarden.com.

Today, I purchased Little Snitch and, to my surprise, I noted that Bitwarden is only establishing a connection to a server in the United States.

I would like to understand why Bitwarden is not only establishing a connection to the US but not establishing any connection with the EU whatsoever.

Curious. I am in neither the US nor Europe. Little Snitch tells me I connect to a .eu server as expected, with no side connections observed either.

Hello, and Welcome to the community!

DNS resolutions around the globe to bitwarden.eu and identity.bitwarden.eu resolve to the cloudflare IPs (IPv4,, arguably in the US. I am not familiar with cloudflare DDoS protection technologies, but perhaps the traffic may not actually get routed through the US to get to the actual BW European servers.
