When you’re using a password manager browser extension, it will ask if you want to save credentials when you log into a website using an account that does not have details saved. This is useful as it will catch the credentials and automatically fill the entry for you in the password manager, saving you the time required to manually add the entry.
Occasionally though, you might not want your password manager to save the details for an account. For example, if your workplace mandates one password manager and you use another, you may want to have both running on your computer. So you can sign into both work and personal accounts. Unfortunately, when you log in to a new account, both password managers will ask you if you want to save the details. If you save the details in one, the other will continue to ask every time you log in.
To avoid this in Bitwarden, you can specifically exclude domains. This will prevent Bitwarden from asking to save unknown account credentials for the domains on the list.
How to Exclude a Domain
There are two ways to exclude a domain in the Bitwarden browser extension. The first is to click “Never for this website” in the popup that appears to ask if you want to save the password.
The second method is in the extension setting. First, click on the Bitwarden extension icon to open the extension pane. Next, switch to the “Settings” tab, then click on “Excluded Domains.” In here, enter the domain name you want to be excluded and click “Save” to apply. For example, enter “technipages.com” to not be reminded about saving a password for the Technipages website.
Tip: You don’t need to specify the “https://” at the start of the URL.
Automatically offering to save passwords to new entries in your vault is a handy feature of password manager browser extensions. It can, however, also be annoying in some situations, so you may want to disable it for some websites. By following the steps in this guide, you can prevent the Bitwarden browser extension from offering to save credentials on specific websites.
