Autocomplete default username (+random password) when creating new entries (or option in generator)

Can this be added to roadmap?

Also looking for this feature.

I see two possibilities:

  1. Autocomplete like LastPass (best choice)
  2. In username generation, under options, add a checkbox to select entries from a static list. I could then choose between different usernames and email addresses I have without typing it

Add it to roadmap please !

Signed up to suggest this feature. +1 from me, the quality of life improvement would be massive, it’s the lack of this feature that makes me hesitate to recommend Bitwarden. Our IT department is looking for options for password management and if this gets added to the roadmap I’ll recommend whole-heartedly

I’ve been a registered user for nearly 3 years and this is the feature that I pine for the most. Don’t we all find ourselves typing out the same email address nearly every time we create a new entry? This feature request seems like a no-brainer. I don’t need a pick list (but would be nice); just a new setting where I can define a default string for the Name field when creating a new entry.

PLEASE oh PLEASE add this.

Current Behaviour: When creating a new login in Bitwarden, under the Username field, you can click the little arrowed circle on the right to automatically populate one of four Username Types: Sub-Address, Catch-All, Forward, Random Word. This is an excellent feature when you need to quickly generate and “Select” one of these four types to automatically fill the Username field.

Issue: If you simply want to automatically fill your standard email address, there is no way to do this, like you can with the four username types. You need to type it out.

Feature suggestion: create a fifth username type: Email Address (nb. there is already an email address field in that window so it knows how to derive a Sub-Address. This should be a very easy feature to implement as you are just creating a new value for this existing Username Type category.

Benefit: when you are now creating a new login, by clicking the arrowed circle on the right, you can quickly auto-populate your email address like you can a new password. This would create a faster, more efficient, and error free workflow when adding new logins.

If you agree, please vote.

Thanks.

One thing that would be really nice is if Bitwarden would automatically suggest your email information and a strong generated password when you sign in a new website. Right now I have to fill my email info myself and go to the vault extension to generate a password that I need to copy paste on the website.

The more effective way to do this is to start in the browser extension, click Add a login, and fill in the Username, generate a random password (click :arrows_counterclockwise:, then “Select”), then click the “Save” button in the browser extension. Now you can click “Auto-fill” to transfer all of this information to the web form and submit the form.

Doesn’t entirely solve your issue, but the Chrome for Mac extension utilizes the keyboard shortcut CMD-SHIFT-9 to generate a password and copy it to the clipboard. This shortcut can also be customized. I assume there are similar keyboard shortcuts for other browsers and operating systems.

To save time, add a dropdown menu for most commonly used usernames.

I generally only use 1-2 email addresses when registering on sites. It is a pain to always have to type in the same email address username time & time again, especially on the mobile app.
If Bitwarden can cache the 5 top commonly used usernames into a dropdown menu selector when adding a new account login to the vault, this would really speed up my experience using the application.

I would like to have an entire set of default fields that can be filled in automatically when generating a new login. doing repetitive tasks on a computer is just silly. I want to fill in a form on my preferences that includes my default user name(s), default email address(s), address(s), first name, last name, etc. then whenever I create a new login, bitwarden should generate a new password based on my rules set up in settings, and autofill all of the above for any of those fields on the account setup page. simple. this feature should super easy to implement since all the frameworks for what I just said is already there. Just add some more fields.

Agree! Made an account here especially for this. This would take like no time at all to code, right?

This is how I formulated it before I found this:

Hi Bitwarden,
Thank you for making Bitwarden, I am a happy user. I do have some easy to implement suggestions for making a new password item. This takes way more effort than necessary, I believe, and this can be fixed easily.

  1. most people use their email address as a username on most sites. Having the previously filled in email address pre-filled, would save users typing in the same email address every time.
  2. It takes more clicks than necessary to generate a random password based on the password generator settings: click on generate password, click on copy, click on select. Just autogenerating a password as a reasonable default would make a lot of sense here.
    If both 1 and 2 would be prefilled, just one click would suffice to generate a new entry. This would save a lot of effort for your users! Other than that, I really like your product, keep up the good work :slight_smile: .
    Best regards,
