You can use the bitwarden Android app to add new and auto-fill existing logins on the web and in other apps.
Auto-fill is context-sensitive. This means that the bitwarden auto-fill icon, and notification will only appear when the app detects a login form. You can change the way auto-fill behaves by navigating to Settings → Features → Auto-fill.
1. The bitwarden Auto-fill Service keeps getting disabled
Android may turn off the bitwarden Auto-fill Service to optimize battery life. To resolve this you can either: - Tell Android to ignore battery optimization for the bitwarden app; or - Manually turn on the bitwarden Auto-fill Service each time
2. The auto-fill notification does not appear when I visit a login page in my web browser.
This is a currently a known issue with the following browsers, which do not support accessibility services:
Android has many web browsers. It can be hard to keep up with them all. We have to add support for each browser individually. If auto-fill does not work and your browser is not listed above please report it at https://github.com/bitwarden/mobile/issues so that we can add support.
3. bitwarden is using a lot of my device’s battery power.
Unfortunately Android accessibility services can be fairly resource intensive on certain devices. We provide a few alternative auto-fill modes that can help reduce battery consumption. You can find these under bitwarden’s Settings → Features menu.
