Bitwarden to add support for passwordless login

One of the upcoming features that we can look forward to in Bitwarden is passwordless login. This probably isn't what you're thinking, it's not for websites. This option will allow you to approve a login to your Bitwarden vault on a new device from an existing one. Here's an example given by a Bitwarden employee, the passwordless login can be used to sign in to your browser extension by confirming it from your mobile phone.

Bitwarden 2022 Roadmap

Per the roadmap that has been published on its site, these features will make their way into the password manager sometime in the 2nd half of the year.

Bitwarden wants to introduce additional item types for users to add to the vault. Vault item labels is a tool that can help users organize their content. Though it sounds like Tags, it will actually be a replacement for vault folders. Vault item sharing will let users send items that they have in their vault to other users.

Enhanced Localization will provide a more efficient way for translators working on different languages. Bitwarden will get a notification center, though it is unclear what it will do, perhaps it might provide alerts for unsuccessful login attempts? Users will be able to gift Bitwarden premium subscriptions to others, and a referral system is coming.

The company will also update its desktop apps with new features. The main issue with the password manager is it's unusable offline unless you are already signed in to your account, but even that has some restrictions. This might change, as Bitwarden will include support for offline editing, which sounds good.

Not all of these features will be available for everyone. Passwordless login options, additional item types, and vault item labels will be available for free users, while the rest are heading to the premium tier.
