Here we get to the fun part -well, if not fun, certainly the easiest and most useful. I’ll give screenshots for iPhone, because that’s what I have, but for Android it’s almost the same.
Step 1: Install the Bitwarden App
Go to your App Store (or Play Store for Android), find Bitwarden and install it.
Step 2: Login
Open the app, click Log In and fill in the email and password (the one you wrote on the paper).
Go to Settings and press “Unlock with PIN code”. Enter the 6 digit number you wrote on the paper and select “No”.
We’re ready to use it!
Step 3: Use it to login to sites
Let’s try to use the browser in our smartphone to login to Zara UK. Navigate to the web site and click Login, or My Account or whatever it has:
Now switch to Bitwarden (you might need to unlock it with your 6 digit code), find the site, press the 3 dots and click Copy Username.
Switch to the browser, tap in the username box and paste the username.
Repeat the same steps for the password and click Log In.
Ta da! We’re in!
That’s all folks
This was what you have to do to get started and work with Bitwarden. It’s not an exhaustive guide, mind you, there are more to it. But it covers the most important part: securely creating, storing and using unique passwords that are impossible to guess.
I hope this works for you. If you have any questions or suggestions, I’ll be more than happy to discuss in the comments!
Have fun 😊
