Add to your vault
Add passwords and more to Bitwarden
To add a new vault item, tap the (+) button at the top right of the browser extension, then choose from four types of vault items: Logins, Cards, Identities and Secure Notes.
For example, when you add a login item, you will be prompted to enter a username and a strong password for the account. Pro tip: click the generate icon [X] to have a strong password created for you.
From there, Bitwarden will automatically grab the URL from the current website and store it with the vault item. It’s important to ensure the correct login page URL is added to the vault item in order to enable auto-fill, and to help prevent phishing attempts.
Now that you have successfully added a login vault item, the pain of manually entering login credentials is now a thing of the past. Autofill is at your fingertips, and you can choose from several methods to activate it:
Ctrl/CMD + Shift + L→ Auto-fill, press again to cycle through matching logins
Right click in a username/password field
Select Bitwarden from the context menu and then auto-fill
Tap the Bitwarden extension to copy a username/password individually
To automatically load your passwords as soon as you navigate to an account in your vault, open your Bitwarden browser extension and go to your Settings menu. From there, select “options” (under the Other category) and enable Auto-fill on page load.
Bitwarden enables you to easily switch between your personal vault and any shared vaults you may have joined, such as the one shared by your team or organization. To navigate between different vaults you belong to, open the browser extension and click the “All Vaults” filter at the top.
While surfing the web, you can easily access the vault items associated with the current website you’re on from within the Tab screen in your browser extension.
Use Folders to organize the items stored in your personal vault. To create or modify a folder, navigate to Folders in the Settings menu.Use Collections to organize credentials shared in your family or business organization. To create or modify a collection (based on user permissions), visit the Bitwarden web vault .
To get the most out of Bitwarden, don’t forget to disable your browser’s ability to manage credentials and let Bitwarden handle the heavy lifting. This update will also protect against the security vulnerabilities introduced by browser-based password managers.
