Auto-fill Blocked URIs


Auto-fill blocking URIs is currently only available for Bitwarden Android 8.0 (Oreo) or higher.

Auto-fill relies on the attribution of URIs to login items. If you are unfamiliar with using URIs, brush up using our Using URIs article. Android users can explicitly prevent URIs from being available for auto-fill. To specify URIs to block:

  1. In the Bitwarden Android app, open the Settings tab.

For iOS users, an app URI can be obtained by using autofill to open Bitwarden. Once Bitwarden is open, select the icon on the top right corner of the screen. From here, copy the URI that has been included in the new vault item. Paste the URI into your existing login item for this app.
