Sometimes when I’m using Twitter app on Android, Bitwarden offers to save as password the terms I entered in search bar there. Also, when I click in the search bar so I can type, Bitwarden show my login credentials.
It seems Bitwarden is mixing up the search bar as a password field. I just ignore it, but as it is a bit annoying, is there anything I can do to avoid that behavior?
Hey everyone, after investigating, it appears this is based on how Twitter has set things up on their end. It doesn’t look like there is much we can do except everyone who is affected report directly to Twitter.
I understand that autofill is an experimental feature, but I’d expect that it would work for some of the most visited sites. Surprisingly it doesn’t seem to work for Twitter and instead I have to manually fill my username and password. My suggestion is to fix this and implement autofill for Twitter.
Just to double check, what language are you using? The Twitter framework seems to have been incorrectly configured for several languages which results in things like the Twitter search field acting like a password field etc… which is out of our control.
@dwbit, I agree with @Maxim. I too can’t get Bitwarden to autofill the multi-page login sites such as twitter & disney+. Another friend of mine also complained of the same. So, I know for a fact that this issue is not local to one person or device.
Also, FYI I’ve excluded Bitwarden app from any optimization that my Mi 11 Ultra does (running MiUI 13) and have given all permissions and even enabled auto start. Still, no luck. Tried multiple times so far.
Please take a look at this & kindly fix this or suggest a fix. Thanks!
Hey @VVR it works as expected on my end using both browser extension and mobile app. What system language are you using? We did isolate an issue where Twitter has not configured the field names correctly on web and app for certain languages (which Bitwarden does not have control over).
Feel free to use the forms in either of these two Github issues to share information for the team to investigate:
@dwbit, I finally managed to figure out something. This is happening mainly when I’m using “Brave” browser on my Android phone. I just tried “DuckDuckGo” browser and the “in-lay” autofill showed up with my credentials. So, not sure how to fix this. I tried checking all possible settings but I’m unable to figure out a solution.
Any advice? Please let me know. Thanks!
