Frequntly Asked Quetion (FAQ)

Q. Can I change passwords with Bitwarden?

A.

Bitwarden is only a password manager, it stores all your passwords, whether they are complex or not. The idea behind a password manager is to make all your passwords so complex that no one, not even you, can remember, guess, or easily hack. That’s why using a password manager is the safest way to store your passwords.

Neither Bitwarden nor any other password manager will change your current passwords on any website or service you use automatically. This must be done manually in each of them.

To change your passwords:

1. Manually go to each site/service.

2. Login using your current credentials information.

3. Find where you can change your password.

4. Once on that page, and depending on the service/site they might have 2 or 3 fields for you to fill in (I cannot help more here as I don’t know all the configurations). Follow either 4.1 or 4.2.

a. Two fields: New password and Confirm new password.

a.1. Click on the Bitwarden plugin (shield icon at the right of the address bar)

a.2. Locate the entry used to login to that specific service/site.

a.3. Click on the view icon of the entry (the first icon that looks like an app window).

a.4. Once in View Item window (still in Bitwarden plugin) Click on Edit at the top-right of the plugin window.

a.5. Locate the password field and click on the rotating arrows icon to generate a new password.

a.6. Click Yes in the Overwrite Password pop-up window to confirm adding a new password.

a.7. Select the password parameters as desired (recommended: the longer the better and use special characters)

a.8. You will be taken back to the view item page in the plugin.

a.9. In there, locate the password field, select the Copy Password icon, the third icon to the right, and click on it.

a.10. Paste (CTRL+V) into fields: New Password and Confirm new password.

a.11. Click on Save Password/Accept depending on the service/site.

b. Three fields: Current Password, New password and Confirm new password.
