Desktop passwords not copied to android app

Doesn’t my android app import my desktop passwords? I click on the Launch link and it just takes me to the login page but doesn’t autofill.

That sounds more like an issue with the target website than a Bitwarden app issue.

If you view the card for that site are the UN and PW defined?

I know on mine, sometimes I have to manually copy and paste the UN and PW data, even though they are correctly defined in Bitwarden.

Also make sure you have autofill enabled in the app.

Yes, definitely.

Are you trying to launch and Android App or website?

Android app on my Samsung. All of the items from the desktop version are on my phone, but nothing is auto-filled, and I have auto-filled turned on.

Can you let us know what browser you are using, and can you tey a different browser and more websites to see if it makes a difference?

If by this you mean that you are trying to auto-fill and Android app, then you need to know that the URIs for Android apps and websites are different. In general, URIs for Android apps start with “androidapp://com.[appname]”.

Thanks for replying RogerDodger, but I actually think I’m going to go back and create my own passwords in a notebook. I like the idea of password managers, but the way they’re getting breached makes me nervous. Take care. :slight_smile:

@Adele_Higgins You should use what you feel comfortable with, but password notebooks are not without risk either (e.g., the notebook could get stolen, lost, destroyed in a fire, etc.).

Also, you should understand that the whole point of the sophisticated “zero-knowledge” encryption scheme that Bitwarden is built on is to ensure that your passwords will be safe even if there is ever a breach of Bitwarden’s servers in the future. However, it should be noted that each user must take an active role in this encryption process, by choosing a master password that is random, unique, and sufficiently long.

If you do go back to using a written notebook to record your passwords, I would at least suggest that you use a random password generator instead of creating your own passwords (which will inherently be easier for attackers to guess, and therefore less secure).

Thanks again for your help, and I’ll be sure to use a random password generator as you suggested. :slight_smile:

I’d suggest at least trying the Bitwarden platform. Maybe set up one password for a non-critical account (such as for a forum) and get used to working with it.
