Enhancing Android User Experience: Proposal for Manual/Auto-Fill of Identities and Cards

Hello Bitwarden Community and Team,

I hope this message finds you well. As a dedicated user of Bitwarden on Android, I have greatly appreciated the security and convenience the app provides. However, I’ve encountered an area where our experience could be further enhanced - the filling functionality for identities and cards.

Currently, accessing and using identities and cards within the Android app can be somewhat cumbersome. For instance, when attempting to use Android’s Quick Tiles to open the identities page, the process feels convoluted, and at times, the app reports that no fillable fields are found. This situation leads to a less-than-ideal user experience, especially when compared to the seamless filling options available for passwords.

Therefore, I propose the introduction of a manual (and possibly future automatic) fill feature for identities and cards on the Android platform. A manual fill option could significantly simplify the process, making it more user-friendly and efficient. While I understand the complexities involved in automating this process, starting with manual fill could serve as a valuable enhancement, paving the way for more advanced features in the future.

Additionally, I would like to mention my experience with Roboform, a platform I have previously used, which excels particularly in this aspect. Roboform’s handling of identities and cards offers a seamless and user-friendly experience, where accessing and utilizing these details is straightforward and efficient. This experience underscores the potential benefits and enhancements that such functionality can bring to Bitwarden.

While I understand that integrating similar features into Bitwarden involves various challenges and considerations, I firmly believe that making the access and copying of fields for identities and cards more convenient would be a significant step forward. Even if the introduction of manual or automatic fill options for identities and cards might not be feasible in the short term, simplifying the current process to open and copy these fields could markedly improve user experience. This change would not only enhance Bitwarden’s functionality but also align it more closely with the standards set by other leading platforms in the industry.

The goal of my proposal is not only to match the convenience found in other applications but to encourage continuous improvement in Bitwarden’s user experience. By taking inspiration from successful implementations like Roboform’s, Bitwarden can explore opportunities to further streamline its operations, making the app even more user-friendly and accessible.

Thank you for considering this proposal. I believe that by working together, we can make Bitwarden even better for all users. I am excited about the potential for these enhancements to Bitwarden and look forward to seeing how our favorite password management tool can evolve to meet and exceed user expectations.
