Is it safe to store credit card credentials in Bitwarden?

Or should I keep doing what i’ve done until now and not store my credentials anywhere other than my IRL wallet?

Edit: AKA having my card in the wallet’s pocket

If you use it as your password manager and store your passwords there, including the password to your bank, then you can. Because if you can store the login credentials to your bank there, then you can probably also store your credit card numbers there.

But if you don’t, then only you can decide your that model.

@Chareidi_Tziyoni I don’t store my bank password there because my bank doesn’t require a password, only my social security number and then a verification through an app called “Bankid”. I was just wondering if it was safe to store my card numbers there since I’ve seen alot of people not recommending storing your TOTP’s in Bitwarden because it’s better to keep those in a separate app instead of having them in the same place as your passwords.

Would you still say it’s safe to store them there?

The reason people say not to keep the TOTP codes in Bitwarden together with the passwords, is not to have all your eggs in one basket. But in the case of credit cards, in my opinion it’s not that big of a risk because even if an attacker does get access to Bitwarden, he won’t get access to your bank account only to your credit card and you can probably always decline fraudulent credit card payments.

If you want to add an extra layer of security, you can store the credit card number and expiration date in Bitwarden but not the security code.
