I have four separate online bank accounts with the same financial institution. Each of these accounts has its own unique user ID and own unique password. All four accounts are housed in the same website address.
I created the first account in Bitwarden’s Vault with its unique user ID and password and it works great.
But when I created the 2d, 3rd and 4th bank accounts (Items) in Bitwarden – each with their unique user IDs and passwords – the vault accepts the unique user names but then gets confused and defaults to the previous bank account password. BW keeps the user ID but then defaults to the bank account password I used previously on BW.
My workaround has been to delete the 2d, 3rd, and 4th bank Items in BW and use only the 1st one in BW. As a result I have to log into 2, 4 and 4 the normal way thru my web brower, but I’d like to use all four in BW,
Does anyone have a solution to this? Thanks
By “confused”, are you referring to their storage/organization in your BW vault, or an auto-filling feature mixing up your different entries?
Thanks for responding.
It’s the password auto filling feature. It fills in the password from my most recent visit to the financial institution’s website. With four different or separate accounts housed in the financial institution’s website, this is not necessarily where I want to go.
You can change that in your browser’s settings and turn this feature off or just turn the auto-filling off. It can be annoying if you have several accounts on a website and use a similar sign-in page for all of them. Also, I recommend you not let your browser remember bank account passwords for safety reasons. You never know how you could get access to your PC. I’m not a financial professional, but I still know you should be careful with your personal data, especially if it’s about money, because the Internet is not a safe space. Even if you know how Discounted Cash Flow Model works, you cannot be sure you are protected from online scams.
Not clear what you mean here. Are you saying that the correct user ID is autofilled, but that the password field on the bank’s login page gets filled with the wrong password?
If so, you most likely have not disabled the web browser’s native password manager. These are known to interfere with Bitwarden and should be disabled if using the browser extensions. Please refer to the following instructions:
