Today, we're going to show you Bitwarden and Vaultwarden and how to install and use them using Docker to store you and your family (or teams) passwords securely! Bitwarden is a free and open-source password management service that stores sensitive information such as website credentials in an encrypted vault.

Vaultwarden is an unofficial Bitwarden server implementation written in Rust. It is compatible with the official Bitwarden clients and is ideal for self-hosted deployments where running the official resource-heavy service is undesirable.

Vaultwarden is targeted towards individuals, families, and smaller organizations. Development of features that are mainly useful to larger organizations (e.g., single sign-on, directory syncing, etc.) is not a priority, though high-quality PRs that implement such features would be welcome.
