Bitwarden for Windows – a complete guide

 Bitwarden for Windows – a complete guide

We have already written about Bitwarden, named it the best free password manager, and shown you how to transfer data from LastPass to Bitwarden. Then we said that its use is extremely easy to use and that if you have used LastPass you already know how to use Bitwarden.

This is for the most part true, although certain differences do exist. That is why we have made a tutorial in which we show you all the most important functions of Bitwarden. Even if you have used LastPass we suggest you take a look at this tutorial, just to avoid any confusion.

Probably the most important difference, which we talk about in the tutorial, but it is very important to repeat here is that in Bitwarden, if you forget your password, there is no way to recover it and your account will be lost forever, along with all the data you have saved.
