2FA expiration countdown in web extension

Feature name

2FA expiration countdown in web extension

Feature function

Being able to see the expiration countdown would be helpful since sometimes 2FA codes only work if they were generated after the login.

I always click the “Copy verification code” button and paste the generated code into a random textbox until I see a new code. I wouldn’t have to do this if the countdown was visible even in the extension window.

Hi @Alex-451 - welcome to the Bitwarden community.

Thanks for making a suggestion - a couple of things though.

First, the countdown time is available in the extension. See here:

Second, you should never have to wait for a code to be valid. It sounds to me like the time on your device is running a bit fast, throwing off the code generation. If you fix that, your codes should always work. Cheers!

Third, why do you not simply use Ctrl+L to enter the credentials and then Ctrl+V to paste the TOTP ?

Hey @dh024, thanks for letting me know I will look into my time settings .:+1:.
Can I somehow close this feature request or do I simply delete the post?

Great - hope that works well for you. I will close this request for you, but if you need to re-open it, just shoot me a DM. Cheers!

Hey all, just wanted to add that we are adding a TOTP screen which should also resolve this inquiry.
