'Generate Password (copied)' item in Chrome when right-clicking, nothing happens

Hi, when I want to sign up on a website, you want to use a Bitwarden generated password, so on Chrome page, I right-click to use the feature ‘Generate Password (copied)’ :

But I discovered that nothing happened, because it is just copying (!). Why it is not a password generation item?
What is the process then to generate a password to sign up to a website? Regards

Hey @Christop this will copy it to the clipboard which you can then paste.

I’ll review with the team to see if we can improve the language used here.

Some ideas:

  • Generate pastable password
  • Generate password for pasting
  • New Password (in clipboard)
  • New Password (must paste)

I agree the language could be altered to make it a bit more intuitive.
Perhaps Generate Password (Copied to Clipboard)

Thanks all, something like Generate Password (Copy to Clipboard) or derivative would probably work, I’ll circle back with any updates.

Thanks for your answers. What looks strange is not just the name, it is also the process: context menus usually do something visually, but this one is doing nothing visually.
I would recommend to name it ‘Insert an auto-generated password’ and have it insert it in the clicked field, this way there is a concrete action instead of nothing happening.
