Integrated BitWarden Support

This is a feature request for integrating BitWarden into Brave. This could replace the current password manager if the user desires to.

I mean this in a way to replace the current BitWarden Chrome extention. Brave itself has a way better detection system for when to save passwords, which combined with the storage and encryption of BitWarden would make all a bit more userfriendly

I just installed BitWarden the other day and was thinking that integration into Brave would be really nice. I 2nd the motion. All in favour? Ok then Brave, make it so!

I really thinks this would be great for the community, also, for security reasons. Bitwarden offers free open source password managing, and it’s very good at not cost at all. I would really like this to be added. Let’s go Brave!

From technicallity point can it be really be possible.
I think the in-built passowrd managers of all browsers save the passwords in your device. Compared to Bitwarden or other passowrd managers, it saves the passowrds in cloud.
If it is possible why did not other browser integrate external passowrd managers in their browsers.

Though, I second this idea. Not only bitwarden, but other password managers too like keypass etc.

Bitwarden has a free version but that does not make it FREEWARE. Brave cannot just implement another company’s products just because they have a free version of said software.

Also, there is an extension for Bitwarden that works perfectly with Brave.

Get the Bitwarden extension, it works without problems. In regards to the integration, Brave cannot just integrate another company’s products into it’s browsers. Bitwarden is not Freeware.

While I agree with the notion of disabling/removing password managers (and bookmark managers) from all web browsers, I think it’s a job that the OS should cover, it is more secure. MacOS (iCloud ) password management is available across your apple devices and synced. It even now supports allowing 3rd party browsers to “pull” on this for auto filling forms on the web and should be the default option. Not sure if Windows offers a similar feature.

I use Bitwarden in a Windows 10 environment, and on Android. It works well and is far more secure than integrated password manager within a typical browser. Currently I’m on Firefox, though seriously seeking an alternative browser now. FF has a Bitwarden app, which is convenient, though I do also have the app on my desktop, which can work as well. I would support a secure integration of Bitwarden into the Brave Browser.

I can’t speak to whether any specific password manager is better or worse or more or less secure than another.

For me, the real overarching benefit of a stand-alone password manager rather than one built into a specific browser: I’m not tethered to that specific browser’s ecosystem. Which is to say (specific to the subject of this thread): I’d be skeptical of “integrating” LastPass or any other specific password manager other than as an extension. I use multiple browsers. I appreciate my stored passwords being available across platforms in whatever browser I’m using.

Years ago, I started using LastPass. No problems with its security, but I found its user interface quirky. That’s 110% a matter of personal taste. I switched to Bitwarden toward the end of 2017 and it’s worked well for me. But that’s a personal choice.

Shop around and contrast / compare stand-alone password managers. Find one that suits you. The first feature I’d look for: the ease with which previously-created passwords can be imported/exported. As mentioned, I started using LastPass. Exporting passwords I’d saved in LastPass and importing them to Bitwarden was easy. Some password managers (including those built into browsers) might have speedbumps.
