Custom icons for items and folders/collections

@Eraser I closed it as the icons for items are a general request, so having specific topics for icons for items/folders/collections isn’t really needed. I did edit the title of this request to reflect more than just items, though.

I‘m not able to do this cause I’m not a staff member. :wink:

Thanks a lot @tgreer ! :+1:

When can we expect this feature to be added? I have a list of 30 emails and all with the same icon, I would like to set custom icons so I can spot my main ones easily. Will this ever get done?

@jprosadoDE we use the favicons from those services, which sometimes vary in padding/size.

We have some additional UI/UX team members now, so items like this are getting some much-needed attention, but not on the imminent development list at the moment.

FFS Bitwarden - what does it take for you to implement a feature that so many people want ? Unbelievable this request is still a thing.

@NTP thanks for the inspiration :metal:

We’ve been working on quite a lot over the past 20 months :slight_smile:

Custom icons is a no brainer, this really needs to happen!

It would be nice to set custom icons for the username/password entries at a glance. If someone has multiple logins for a website it would be nice to set the icon.

Would be useful to me too. As a workaround, I have uploaded icons to my own server and then created an extra URL in the Bitwarden Login record (with match detection set to “Never”).

Me too. Take my money.

How can this not be a thing in 2022? I’ve just set up bitwarden and playing around with it a bit and thought I just wasn’t able to find it… Is it because of file size that would need to be stored on server? Why not allow a URL or at least give the option to self hosted or premium users…

This feature would be helpful to many, myself included.

If it has not already been mentioned, the auto favicon generation sometimes leads to misleading icons when web apps have redirects/forwards for OAuth. Example, a login page that automatically redirects to insert_OAuth_provider_of choice_here will show the OAuth provider icon, not the actual web app icon. An easy workaround (easy for users :slight_smile: ) would be to allow custom icons or change of an icon on an item. Side note - If I should report this as a bug please let me know and I will be happy to do so.

Here’s hoping this can be somewhere in the roadmap in the near-term.

Best regards.

Hey @nnscr , welcome to Bitwarden community forums !
The reason i can guess for this is not much related to file-size or premium subscription but it is more related to the fact that , the current Bitwarden code doesn’t support viewing of on any external images in the app/web vault without first downloading the unencrypted copy of it on your local/cahced storage and then processing it.
Everybody may not like the icons to be left unencrypted while they are stored on the servers or in local cached storage
This can be inferred from the fact that the favicons(website icons) too are not encrypted on your local storage after they have been fetched from the icon server. Reference to it can be find here Though you could easily turn web-icons off if that concerns you.
You can read about it here Privacy when using Website Icons | Bitwarden Help & Support .
Also to be noted that the feature of viewing docs/images securely wouldn’t be trivial to implement keeping security in mind.
Till the time there is a safe way developed for it, i would rather request a pre-defined set of icons and colors that a user can chose from to set it as their folders/entry icons.
Currently as a workaround many of us use emojis in the folders’ name to make those folders easily distinguishable from others.
Hope my input would be helpful for this request.
Cheers :smile:

Icon set reference image.

How about a function that takes the second URI when the first one has no icon?
