Bitwarden for Android – a complete guide

 Bitwarden for Android – a complete guide

We recently published a complete guide for Bitwarden on Windows 10. In that tutorial and this one, we paid particular attention to the fact that you must not lose your password. If this happens, there is no way to get it back, and your account will be lost, along with all the login information stored on it.

The reason for this is security, so Bitwarden does not store your password. When you keep all your passwords, payment card details, and personal notes in one place, security is of the highest priority.

There is another layer of protection on Android, and that is that screen capture is disabled. If you try to take a screenshot or record your screen, the image/video will be completely black.

That is why in this tutorial, we could not record the screen in the usual way, so we had to record with another camera. Despite these technical difficulties, we present to you our complete guide for Bitwarden on Android.
