Bitwarden does not ask to auto save new credentials for some websites. However We can manage using the manual saving option. But what make it complex is updating the already saved login passwords, particularly If copy/paste option is disabled in the password field of the website.
Actually I am new to password manager. First of all I tried Bitwarden, As I felt the above difficulty, I decided to try some other applications to know how they handle this situation.
Please find below different between Bitwarder and other applications:
Please keen in mind that I tried to change password on web site where copy/paste option is not available and Bitwarden does not prompt to auto save/update password.
There are 3 password fields available. 1. old password, 2. new password & 3. re-enter new password.
I have to use auto fill option on the old password filed. But Bitwarden fills all the 3 fields with old password.
So, I have to keep the password on 1st field and delete the 2nd and 3rd fields.
Go to Bitwarden tool bar icon and generate new password and copy it.
Note it down on a notepad file or paper.
Go to My Vault>>Login>>Item name>>Edit>>Paste the new password copied>>save.
Come back to website’s new password (2nd) field and manually enter the generated password (as copy/paste option is not working).
Again manually enter the new password in 3rd field.
Other Password managers:
I have to fill the old password field using the auto fill option directly available on the field itself (it only fill the 1st field).
Then go to the 2nd field, a dropdown asks me to generate a new password, I click on it then it fill the 2nd as well as 3rd field automatically.
Finally when I click on the submit button on the web site, tool bar icon asks me to make change to the already saved item. I simply click on save.
I have to change password every month for 3 or 4 times, as the password of some sites expire in every 90days.
The main issue here is the auto-fill option fills all the 3 fields.
It is cumbersome noting down and manually entering the passwords having more them 15 characters. Any idea how to overcome this?.
