Bitwarden not recognizing local network adresses - any solution?

Hello everyone,

I’m new to Bitwarden and wasn’t able to find an answer to my question.

I have a handful of local network aliases that I use to access certain smart home and/or network devices (like “http://plenticore” for my PV system, “http://homeserver” for my server, etc.).

Unfortunately, Bitwarden doesn’t seem to be able to match those adresses, so I always have to look up the password entry manually.

I tried all the URL matching options, nothing makes it work.

Strangely, the local address of my router ( is being recognized, which makes me believe that Bitwarden NEEDS some kind of top level domain (.box in this case) to even start matching. Is that right? And if so, can I somehow disable this?

Any help very much appreciated!

Thank you,

How did you add the login entry, did you do the following:

  1. Go to the URL.
  2. Go into Bitwarden, which displays the current address of the site you are on. Add Login.

If you used other login manager, some will save password if a new site is detected. I think in Bitwarden you have to semi-manually add it.

Hey, thanks for the tip. It’s working! I imported my passwords from Lastpass and just tried making the old entry work, instead of trying to add a new one.

Thanks again!
