I’m using the Bitwarden extension in Firefox.
Every morning I log in with username and password. Our organisation will not use the SSO option for the foreseeable future.
Currently I only login to Bitwarden when I first need to log in on some website (usually an internal platform). My steps then are as follows:
- Click on the Bitwarden extension icon to open the plugin popup
- Click on login (~1)
- Click in the password field (~2)
- Wait for login to complete
- Close the plugin popup because now I see a default view, not passwords for the already open website (~3)
- Open the plugin popup again
- Click on the password for the website.
I see three (some seemingly simple) improvements, already marked above:
- Let me get to the password entry field more easily as recurring user. By optionally disabling the “Enterprise Single Sign-on” method. And if I use the tool daily, I probably won’t need to easily create a new account. Put that options somewhere else. This could remove one click.
- Focus the password field so I don’t have to click to focus it first. This could also remove one click.
- Let me choose to not start the plugin at the default view, but immediately show entries for the currently open website. This could remove 2 clicks.
All three optimalisations combined could make the first login process go from six to just three clicks. Note that each click is not just a click, but requires positioning of the cursor in the right spot first.
I’ve waited several months to report this. But I think the extension could use some love. And this would improve my first use every day.
