Get Started with Browser Extensions

Bitwarden browser extensions integrate password management directly into your favorite browser. Download a Bitwarden browser extension from your browser's marketplace or app store, or from the Bitwarden Downloads page.

Browser extensions are supported for the two most recent versions of Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Microsoft Edge, and Safari. For Vivaldi, Brave, and Tor, only the most recent version is supported.


The Safari browser extension is packaged with the desktop application, available for download from the macOS App Store. Learn more.

Explore your Vault

In the My Vault view, you can browse all items in your vault.

When you make an item a favorite, it'll be displayed at the top of your vault for easy access. Items are also sorted into types (logins, cards, identities, and secure notes) and folders. If you're a member of an Organization, collections will also appear in your vault.

Get Organized with Favorites and Folders

Organizing your vault into favorites and folders makes navigating a breeze.

To add a folder:

  1. Select the Settings tab.

  2. Select the Folders option.

  3. Select the Add icon.

  4. Give your new folder a name and select Save.

To add an item to a folder or your favorites:

  1. Select the item you want to edit.

  2. Select Edit in the top-right corner of the browser extension.

  3. Select a folder from the dropdown, or check the Favorite checkbox.

  4. Select Save in the top-right corner of the Browser Extension.

Add a Login

Any time you log in to a website that doesn't already have an item saved for it, Bitwarden will offer to remember the login information for you:

Add a Login

Selecting Yes, Save Now will automatically add a login to your vault with the entered username, password, and URI. You can also use the Select folder... dropdown to select a folder to put this item in.


You can disable this banner by selecting the Disable Add Login Notification option from the Options menu in your browser extension.

If an Organization you belong to has enabled the Personal Ownership policy, this banner will be disabled.

Launch a Website

You can launch a website directly from the browser extension by selecting the Launch button in any vault item with a valid URI. Learn more about URIs.

Auto-fill Logins

Bitwarden browser extensions have a unique Tab view, which automatically detects the URI (e.g. of the page displayed in your open tab and finds any logins with corresponding URIs.

When a login has a corresponding URI, the Bitwarden icon will overlay a notification bubble reporting the number of logins you have for that web page:

Selecting the login inside the browser extension will auto-fill your username and password in the detected input fields.

There are a few other methods of auto-filling from your browser extension, including context menus and keyboard shortcuts. Learn more.

Unlock with PIN / Biometrics

For fast access to your credentials, setup a PIN or biometrics to unlock your vault. To setup a PIN, for example:

  1. In your browser extension, open the Settings tab.

  2. In the Security section, check the Unlock with PIN checkbox.

  3. Enter the desired PIN code in the input box. PIN codes can be any combination of characters (a-z, 0-9, $, #, etc.)


    Optional: The pre-check option Lock with master password on browser restart will require you to enter your master password instead of a PIN when your browser restarts. If you want to be able to unlock with a PIN when you browser restarts, uncheck this option.

Pin an Extension

Pinning the browser extension will ensure that it's easily accessible each time you open your browser. The procedure differs based on which browser you're using:
