Constantly getting "Should Bitwarden remember this password for you?"

This bug has been annoying me since I started using BitWarden after switching from LastPass. I enter a password on a given site (bank site in most cases), and when BitWarden pops up asking “Should Bitwarden remember this password for you?”, I click “Never”. For whatever reason, it just keeps asking me every time I open up those pages anyway.

Hello Dan,
I think some other person reported this issue as well, not sure.
But you can disable these notifications easily
Go to Settings–>Scroll down and select Options–>Tick ‘Disable Add Login Notification’ and ‘Disable Changed Password Notification’.

Is that site specific then? I don’t want to disable it for every site, just sites that have sensitive information,

Just a guess, but I would suspect the URL is changing everytime you log in. There is a setting for filling the login info by matching the URL exactly or by Base URL. I use Base URL. Again, just a guess.

And I agree, LastPass just worked. Bitwarden is a Beta product.

My problem is similar - Bitwarden asks me EVERYTIME I log into a site if I want to save the password. Problem: it has already saved the password. I’m using Brave, Chrome, Firefox and occasionally Aloha browsers. It happens on all of them.

Is your answer the same? If so, I’m stumped about the Settings URL. I’ve searched everywhere in my Bitwarden URLs and never see the word Options, or Tick “Disable Add Login Notification.” I’d appreciate your help!

Hi Julie, what are your timeout settings? Is your extension locked when this happens?

Thanks for the quick reply and Yes, Bitwarden has been locked each time, which was infuriating.

I discovered that detail earlier today and reset timeout from 15 minutes to 4 hours. But here’s the weird thing. I have one site that Bitwarden (I assume) simply logs me in without any unlocking or clicking on my part. I open the site and like magic, I’m ushered in without logging in from password pop-ups. I wish all sites did this.

I’ll see how it goes now that I’ve extended the time to unlock. I just noticed my settings don’t apply globally to all my browsers. Bitwarden beta has a long way to go.

Thanks, keep use updated!

The timeout setting was the problem. I had to change it on each browser, but no more requests to “save” have popped up since then. Thank you!

I had the same issue. This appears to happen when the timeout is set to “Never” or “Custom” as well. Changing the timeout setting to one of the preset values, then refreshing the page seems to work to store the site under “excluded domains” and in a way that Bitwarden will respect. After that, you can return the timeout setting to the previous value, if you want.

I switched to BW from LastPass because of their paywall and their repeated reports of security incursions into their system. But I do miss having a product that was largely bug-free.

Hey there, can you confirm if your vault is in a locked state when you are seeing this message? If your vault is locked, it is unable to confirm what credentials are stored and so provides the prompt. The prompt can be disabled in the settings menu, more info here:

The vault is unlocked when this message appears.

And what is your match detection settings for that vault item URI?
