Overlay popup interface

Can you describe with more details about the security issues?

As far as I know, this should even improve the security by giving the users an explicit visual indication of which fields will be filled. I also don’t know any past security issue related to the popup interface from other password manager extensions that had this feature by default for years and I would even say there is a trend of new extensions using the icon, like DuckDuckGo (#7 most popular on Firefox) and Grammarly (#12).

Read the first few posts in this thread - that is where they are mentioned. Lastpass already had an issue with their implementation, so I think that has many people concerned about how Bitwarden might implement a similar feature.


Checking back after 1 year (Lastpass families renewal is tomorrow)…
:frowning: Shame it still isn’t implemented.
See you in another year.


Paul, if you are trying to reach the Bitwarden team, you should use the contact form on their website. Otherwise, you are essentially only reaching the user community by posting this here.

It’s really a shame bitwarden still does not have this feature yet after beong requested for all these years.


Just cast vote number 777. Does that mean I hit the jackpot and the feature will actually get implemented?

Unfortunately not; as quoted in the roadmap post:

“votes might seem like a lot, but it’s not representative of the overall user base.”

Joining the club. Would love a solution to easier autofill it…

Thanks for the feedback everyone, currently the quickest way to auto-fill in Bitwarden is by using Ctrl/CMD + Shift + L to cycle through credentials matching the current URI.

Just chiming in to say the work on this GitHub contribution thread looks the likeliest to evolve into a final implementation.

If you or anyone you know have some experience in web development, feel free to jump in. I myself would love to learn, and absolutely would just to work on this… if only I had more time…

After all, that’s what open source is all about: the community can contribute to the development themselves, rather than just waiting for the company to do everything.

I lack the skills to contribute, so I pay for premium to support the company so they can ‘contribute on my behalf’, if you will. The more individuals who buy premium, the more money Bitwarden makes from individual users rather than enterprises, so the more devs they can hire to implement the features we want. If enterprise users are the only ones paying, it makes sense that the paid developers should prioritize their needs/wants over ours.

Open source is a gift. Don’t look it in the mouth unless you’re prepared to do your part. Upvoting the feature request is one thing; nagging the official devs about it is another.

IMO premium subscribers (and employees of companies that pay for enterprise) should get some kind of flair on this forum, to help amplify voices of those who are actually supporting the project. Also maybe another flair for contributors whose code has made it into a release.


Thank you for the answer.
We see for a few years that this is the quickest way to do so. Would appreciate to know if it’s on any timeline to be implemented.
It has many votes and big discussion, but with no answers :frowning:

Hi @Ran_Shahar thanks for following up. The team is closely researching cross-platform security standards in this area.

2022 here - I’d really like this added… I did find on the forums Crtl+Shift+L, and that just worked super nicely. However, I transitioned from LastPass and loved this feature. I really expected to see a little BitWarden logo on all my login fields. Thanks devs tho, clearly you work hard on this tool.

without overlay popup hard to fill this kind of popup. it wast time for seach logins.

use hotkey for those…


Yep I use hotkey all the time, I find it better than the Lastpass overlay which often seemed to get in the way.


9 posts were split to a new topic: Cannot autofill passwords on iOS


I am using Lastpass for last 8 months. Recently i heard about bit warden and created valut account. It looks clean interface than Lastpass. But my favorite feature Last pass is Auto Fill Icon in username and password field which is missing in bitwarden . And one more thing, can’t add new “Types” too. I would like to add those features in further update.

  1. Add Autofill icon in login fields in websites (Like Lastpass autofill Icon)
  2. Add to create new types
  3. Add some more themes
  4. Also add payment option with debit cards or paytm too.
  5. Also enable file attachment for free plan. Because Lastpass giving file attachment option even in free plans. So if you add small diskspace for file attachment, it will be a good option.




Just vote for this feature request to get the possibility to add new types or new pre-defined item types:

Hi DenalB,

Thanks for your quick reply.

Yes, Bitwarden support 4types which are very useful types. But i would like to add some more fields like servers, Mail accounts…So we can group those things separately and handle to very easy.

Mainly i would like to request for AutoFill icon feature like Lastpass. Because everytime i have to click bitwarden icon for fill the logins…In this case small icon available in logins fields for webpage, we can click and fill itself. Lastpass done this feature very nicely.

If you add this feature, i will migrate my account to bitwarden premium. I am holding for migration for this.
