    Blacklisting URIs is currently only available for Bitwarden Mobile on Android 8.0 (Oreo) or higher.

    Auto-fill relies on the attribution of URIs to Login items. If you’re unfamiliar with using URIs, brush up using our Using URIs article. Android users can explicitly blacklist URIs to prevent Bitwarden from offering them for auto-fill. To specify URIs to blacklist:
