I’m an IT professional (for 31 years and counting), but have never used an apple product before. I now have the need to use one app that works much better on ios than android, so I’m currently setting up a used (but blank, freshly updated to ios 15.1) ipad 7th gen.
I’ve loaded bitwarden, and the one app I need, but I have a couple issues…not sure if it’s me or bitwarden, or the other app.
Instructions for IOS:
- Open your Bitwarden app and tap Settings.
- Tap the App Extension option in the Auto-fill section. - This went as planned
- Tap the Enable App Extension button.
- From the share menu that slides up, tap Bitwarden.
Extension Activated!message will indicate success. - This doesn’t happen; just get a popup with the word Bitwarden, an icon next to it, and an “edit actions” under it. If I click the Bitwarden icon, a message at the top of the ipad says “Almost done! Tap the Bitwarden icon in the menu to launch the extension.” But…there’s no menu anywhere? If I click the “edit actions”, a popup says "Actions - Done - Other Actions - Bitwarden with a green plus next to it. (Oops; I just clicked the +, now there’s a red -.)
In IOS settings, Passwords, AutoFill Passwords is on, Bitwarden is the only item checked.
Now, if I start my app and click in the login fields, then click “Passwords” by the keyboard, Bitwarden prompts for the master password. And it just keeps asking every time I start that app. I have a passcode setup in Bitwarden.
What am I missing here?
(It doesn’t work like this on Android; it asks for the bitwarden passcode, not the master password.)
