Alternative implementation of the Bitwarden server API written in Rust and compatible with upstream Bitwarden clients*, perfect for self-hosted deployment where running the official resource-heavy service might not be ideal.

📢 Note: This project was known as Bitwarden_RS and has been renamed to separate itself from the official Bitwarden server in the hopes of avoiding confusion and trademark/branding issues. Please see #1642 for more explanation.

Image is based on Rust implementation of Bitwarden API.

This project is not associated with the Bitwarden project nor Bitwarden, Inc.

IMPORTANT: When using this server, please report any bugs or suggestions to us directly (look at the bottom of this page for ways to get in touch), regardless of whatever clients you are using (mobile, desktop, browser...). DO NOT use the official support channels.


Basically full implementation of Bitwarden API is provided including:

  • Organizations support
  • Attachments
  • Vault API support
  • Serving the static files for Vault interface
  • Website icons API
  • Authenticator and U2F support
  • YubiKey and Duo support


Pull the docker image and mount a volume from the host for persistent storage:

docker pull vaultwarden/server:latest
docker run -d --name vaultwarden -v /vw-data/:/data/ -p 80:80 vaultwarden/server:latest

This will preserve any persistent data under /vw-data/, you can adapt the path to whatever suits you.

IMPORTANT: Some web browsers, like Chrome, disallow the use of Web Crypto APIs in insecure contexts. In this case, you might get an error like Cannot read property 'importKey'. To solve this problem, you need to access the web vault from HTTPS.

This can be configured in vaultwarden directly or using a third-party reverse proxy (some examples).

If you have an available domain name, you can get HTTPS certificates with Let's Encrypt, or you can generate self-signed certificates with utilities like mkcert. Some proxies automatically do this step, like Caddy (see examples linked above).


See the vaultwarden wiki for more information on how to configure and run the vaultwarden server.

Get in touch

To ask a question, offer suggestions or new features or to get help configuring or installing the software, please use the forum.

If you spot any bugs or crashes with vaultwarden itself, please create an issue. Make sure there aren't any similar issues open, though!

If you prefer to chat, we're usually hanging around at room on Matrix. Feel free to join us!


Thanks for your contribution to the project!
