Bitwarden release new 2FA app

Bitwarden is one of the best password managers in the business. It's easy to use, open-source, secure, and cross-platform. Honestly, there are very few downsides to using Bitwarden.

And, as many of you may know, a password manager's best friend is a solid 2FA client. Though Bitwarden supports 2FA passwords from within the password manager as a premium feature, it's always been a better security practice to keep those two things separate.

Now, the team behind Bitwarden are helping up your security game by offering 2FA functionality in a separate app: Bitwarden Authenticator.

Bitwarden paid users can still use 2FA from within the standard Bitwarden app if they so choose, but this new app offers an alternative solution for those who want or need an even more secure option.

As of May 1, Bitwarden Authenticator is available for both Android and iOS. Unfortunately, there's currently no word on whether it will come to other platforms, including the desktop and the browser.

What users can expect is for Bitwarden Authenticator to continue delivering enterprise-focused solutions. Bitwarden aim to develop further granularity and policy controls surrounding how businesses manage workforce authentication. This includes custom enterprise policies, IT infrastructure integration, and passkey support.

That doesn't mean Bitwarden aren't focusing on the everyday end users, though. Authenticator is still available for the average person to use, even without an existing Bitwarden account.
