Apple just released a new autofill API yesterday and it’s pretty great. When using Safari, you won’t have to click on the share extension and select Bitwarden, just one click on the banner with the website you have a password, authenticate yourself and you’re done.
Any new about this? I think the new Autofill feature is crucial. Any password manager without support for it will end in irrelevance. So as Bitwarden is the one and only open source password manager with high platform support it is highly needed.
Thanks for your work @kspearrin !
This was a “must have” when the first beta of iOS 12 was released. Not because other password managers use the feature, but because it improves user experience tremendously. And when it comes to managing passwords, a seamless user experience is almost everything. As long as you have security, as well.
First bit of critique - this might be a limitation of the way iOS 12 implemented the feature, but would it be possible not to show Username UNTIL Face ID/Touch ID was checked/verified? E.G. you click into a Username field, and right away the phone scans for Face ID/Touch ID and THEN shows the username?
At current, the username is displayed without any need for authentication. A privacy issues at a minimum, but also somewhat of a security issue in some circumstances.
