With the October 2022 release, Bitwarden is pleased to announce additional options for backing up your Bitwarden vault! This update is available in the web vault and makes it easier to export, access, and import encrypted backups of your passwords and sensitive information.

Previously, the encrypted export function created a file that was encrypted with an account’s encryption key — derived from the account’s username and master password and unique to the specific account. Now, users have the additional option of using a password of their choosing for backup encryption. This gives users more flexibility when backing up their vault, and provides the option to not tie their backup to the account’s encryption key.
