My Bitwarden Premium is coming to an end. As TOTP is part of Premium, if I let the subscription expire and not renew.

What happens to the generated TOTP codes?
- Does Bitwarden erase them?
- If I renew at a later day, will the TOTP codes exist?

FWIW; I have the backup codes, but that's besides the question.

If your Bitwarden Premium subscription expires, the TOTP codes that were generated using Bitwarden will still exist in your account. However, you will not be able to generate new TOTP codes or add new TOTP accounts until you renew your subscription.

Bitwarden does not erase your TOTP codes when your subscription expires, so if you renew your subscription at a later date, your TOTP codes will still be there. However, it's always a good idea to keep a backup of your TOTP codes, just in case.

If you have backup codes, you can use them to access your accounts that require TOTP codes even if your Bitwarden Premium subscription has expired.
