Connect Clients to your Instance

By default, Bitwarden clients will connect to Bitwarden-hosted servers, but any client application can be configured to connect to your self-hosted Bitwarden instance instead.

note

If you are trying to connect to a Bitwarden-hosted server, but your client is attempting to connect to a self-hosted instance, select bitwarden.com or bitwarden.eu from the Logging in on menu.

  1. On the login or registration screen, select the Logging in on dropdown and choose the Self-hosted option.
