Highly requested by the Bitwarden community, the new inline autofill menu greatly enhances the user experience, enabling users to fill login credentials faster than ever.

The auto-fill icon appears inside relevant form fields and displays a menu of credentials associated with the web service or account. This streamlines the login process, especially when multiple logins are saved for the same site. If a login is not saved for a particular site, simply add new logins to the Bitwarden vault from the menu.

A security-first approach to auto-fill

While presenting speed and ease for end users, the auto-fill feature requires a careful, security-minded approach. Because the auto-fill process involves injecting code and DOM elements into pages not controlled by the extension, this is especially important for user security.
  • The auto-fill menu will only fill credentials when a user selects a form field they want to interact with. This protects users from potentially malicious form fields or web pages and ensures sensitive information will never be populated without user knowledge.
  • Users have the option to password-protect login information for an additional layer of security when auto-filling.
  • Extensive third-party penetration testing was conducted to identify security gaps prior to release

Comprehensive auto-fill options tailored to fit your needs

Bitwarden offers a wide selection of auto-fill methods including keyboard shortcuts, a dedicated context-menu, auto-fill on page load, manual auto-fill, and now the inline menu. With comprehensive URL matching, Bitwarden users can also set specific URL requirements that will determine when a login will be offered for auto-fill. This ensures sensitive information is only shared with trusted websites.

This is what I was hoping to see in that article. To give a person a little time to look and consider what's going on, and what we're doing. All in all, nice job, and would help me to maybe consider using it compared to 1Password.
