I have a Macbook Air with Macos Sonoma fully updated! I have noticed since this last update in the Apple Mac App store. I have to unlock the Desktop App before Biometrics will work in the Web Browser Extension this is both Firefox and Brave or Chrome the same thing. Not sure in Safari i don’t use it as a rule. Before this last update the biometrics would work with the Desktop App locked or unlocked.

Hello T.J,

Bitwarden seems to have changed it to fix some still-unclear security problem, probably on an interim basis. If you can’t stand the new behavior, you may want to use PIN unlock until they fix it on a long-term basis.
