Below is a copy of an email I sent support today after been IP blocked last evening.
My phone is in flight mode and not connected to internet. If I start Bitwarden, I can log in and still use my vault.
My ip address is blocked and I have no access to your servers. If I start Bitwarden on my phone, I get a log on error message and I cannot use my vault.
Why are there any differences in how I can use your software in these two situations? If I could still use the app on my phone and only synchronization was disabled when there is no contact with your server, I could live with it. But it is difficult to still use Bitwarden in the future if I cannot thrust I get my work done.
So my feature request is to make sure the app is usable when it is not possible to contact the server for whatever reason.
I got the message as shown in the picture when I tried www.bitgarden.com in the browser. Before that I had tried to get into the app on two different phones. I opened the app and unlocked it with my fingerprint. I was then asked for to log in with my password instead of going directly to the vault. Log in with my password failed on both phones and I then tried to check for any outage messages in this forum, but was blocked. Half an hour later, everything worked again.
I am a new user to Bitwarden who recently switched from Enpass. If I understand you right, this error message I got is not common. I got worried that Bitwarden was a bad choice, but I suppose I could give it some more time before I make any conclusions
Several minutes ago I saw same IP block message like @stigvi
It seems the abuse system is a bit under pressure. Probably because many people like me are now changing many passwords because of the latest data breach.
It works again for me now, but it’s not kind of message you want to see when using your password manager.
