In the past i've used keypass, lastpass, now i'm using bitwarden.

Especially with the lastpass breach, to be cautious, i'd like to change all my passwords.

this seems like a horrible process as, as far as i can tell, there is no way to
-automatically change passwords
-expire passwords
-generate a report on password dates

it seems like at this point its a very manual process, I feel like there must be something i'm missing, so i'm asking for help here. (after searching bitwarden for a while)
I can't believe that I can't mark a bunch of passwords "to be changed" or at minimum generate a report of passwords older than a certain date, it should be trivial and useful.

thanks in advance,
Brian
 
The same pain happens when you need to change your email address. Went through that 7 years ago.

PasswordSafe user for 15 years 300+ unique passwords.
 
Fortunately, I never went to LastPass. I am using BitWarden which I'm not sure I like it asking if I want to save passwords every single time...I still have KeePass(;
 
I just checked my Bitwarden desktop (Windows) app and online vault and I couldn't find a password expiration setting either. It might be a thought to request that feature from Bitwarden. From SN they seem to be responsive to good suggestions from users. I used the Firefox extension for a while and then removed it, opting to use the manual cut/ paste with a short time to clear the clipboard. The extension didn't auto fill all my sites plus I didn't like having it in the browser anyway. I set it up so once I copy a field or launch a URL Bitwarden minimizes and get itself out of the way. It may be a few more clicks but I've gotten used to it and it works flawlessly on all my sites.

BW only asks if I want to save the password if I have just changed it, or when I am setting up a new login.
