Bitwarden is one of many password managers on the market, most of which include a bevy of features. As more and more people start using a password manager in their daily life, the creators of the tools add extra features to make them more appealing.
One such feature you might find in your password manager of choice is the ability to add a credit card as a vault item. When you see that you might not even give it a second of consideration.
If you’re a business, you probably have company credit cards that must be accessible to employees. Why not just use the Bitwarden Organizations feature and add the credit card info as a vault item? That way, anyone in the organization would have access to that credit card information so they don’t have to either ask you for it or save it in an insecure location.
If you have a Bitwarden vault for your family, you might have a credit card that others in your household need access to. Save that card as a vault item and they’ll have access to it.
Or maybe you’re an individual who doesn’t want to always have to hunt down their purse or wallet to order something over the phone or online. Save that credit card as a vault item and you’ll have access to it wherever you are.
With Bitwarden, a credit card vault entry is treated differently than others and allows you to save and select the following information:
- Cardholder name
- Card number
- Expiration month
- Expiration year
- Security code
So from that vault item, you’ll have every piece of information required to use the card… all of which is protected by the vault’s password. That’s actually more secure than keeping the card in your wallet (which can be lost or stolen).
Let’s find out how to add a credit card as a vault item in Bitwarden.
The only thing you’ll need for this is a valid Bitwarden account (which can be free or paid). That’s it. Let’s add those cards.

Once you’ve filled out the necessary information, click the save icon and your card is now safely tucked away in your vault.
And that’s all there is to adding a credit card as a Bitwarden vault item. I highly recommend doing this so you’ll always have that information safe and handy.
