Automatically submit login form on auto-fill

Add an option to automatically submit login forms when an autofill action is performed. We might want an option to do this globally and/or on specific items. If we have a global option we would then also need an option to override it and disable it for specific logins too since the behavior may not be always desirable in certain situations.


It should be special key combination (like CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER) and/or UI button to do fill action with submit.


Also for the UI, maybe add SHIFT + LEFT CLICK on the BitWarden item to fill credentials and auto submit the form, and leave LEFT CLICK to only fill the credentials and not submit (as is the current operation).

I’m thinking something similar to Roboform’s ability for this same function:

Hello fellow Bitwardener’s,

I just switched from LP because of their latest update and so far I like what I’m seeing using Bitwarden. Seems to be very simple, and I really need simple.

One quick question, is there any way to have Bitwarden automatically log you in to sites rather than just fill the form and you have to hit enter or log in?

Lastpass had this feature and it was very useful.

Thanks guys…

Sorry, I don’t have an answer for you on this. Just wanted to mention that I also am trying out BW because the LastPast update was so destructive of my stored data. Plus I never received a notification that the update was coming, what changes were in it, and most importantly, things the enduser should do to re-shape his stored data so it would not be impacted negatively by the update.
LP – really a disappointment after being a great aid for so many years.

Couldn’t agree more.

One thing about Bitwarden, the other day I had a support question and within an hour I had a reply from support with the information I needed. Solved my issue.

Compare that with the support, or lack thereof from Lastpass, and I’m a premium customer.

I opened a ticket with LP support and it took 3 days to get a canned response.

Yeah, I’m done being a premium customer at LP, but I just might get a paying subscription with Bitwarden.

We’ll see. Hopefully there’s a way to auto log in to my sites…

Currently there’s no way to automatically log in in Bitwarden. The closest you can get is going to settings, options then Enable Auto-fill On Page Load. It can be buggy at times and will not work if you have multiple accounts for the same site.

Thank you,

I guess I’ll have to live with that or go back to LP.

I really like the auto login feature. Very convenient. One click and you’re into your site.

Maybe Bitwarden will offer this in a new release?

Thanks again…

I never really liked auto login, you loose the chance to visually inspect the page before putting your information on it. This concern obviously applies to auto fill as well.

It’s just something I wouldn’t use I guess, similar to when I used lastpass.

Is there any update on this feature ? looks like its been 8 months since this request was last updated !!

You guys are getting popular :slight_smile: - i just recently went premium. So Act Fast !!

…to submit on fill option please

Want it too. Same feature is present in Dashlane that I used for some years.

Keeper también tiene esta funcionalidad. Así evitas que el usuario final pueda extraer la contraseña

yeah cool feature :smiley:

+1 from me - I’ve recently moved from another product, and I’m missing this feature. Seems like all of the other products have already got it too.

I just dropped 1Password and migrated to Bitwarden Pro. I also miss this feature, since 1Password would allow you to select a login and it would auto-fill then submit (with an option to turn the auto-submit on and off).

Yes, Like that.

Certainly needs to be a per record setting. I have had a lot of annoyance from LastPass when it has auto filled and submitted with “Account A” when I wanted to login with “Account B”

I also miss this feature, I’m considering whether migrate from LastPass.
