BUG - Bitwarden Android Crashes when Adding 2FA

I happed the 3rd time within 2 days that the Bitwarden Android App crashed when I was editing an entry and was scanning the QR-Code to add 2FA.

I have an Samsung Galaxy Note 8 with Android 9
The Bitwarden App Version is 2.6.1 (3178)

What additional data do you need?

I’ve the same on S9 with Android 10. Many times I’ve to start Bitwarden two or three times before it succeeds.

@OLLI_S same applies here

Did anybody create a GitHub issue yet?

I found this issue in GitHub, but this was already closed on 8th July, so I posted a comment there:

This is still occurring… Must have happened 20 times to me whilst configuring 2FA on multiple accounts since moving from Lastpass.

The Bitwarden app just closes as it scans the QR code. Often reopening and trying again works fine, sometimes (including the community here’s QR Code) it takes 4 or 5 tries to scan without crashing.

On other sites it works fine first time.

Ive raised a new issue about it as its different to the linked issue: Scanning TOTP QR Code Can Crash the Bitwarden App · Issue #1289 · bitwarden/mobile · GitHub

Hey guys: this issue is annoying but a quick fix, so I’ll stop crashing, as says here https://github.com/bitwarden/mobile/issues/975#issuecomment-791860509 is to give both camera and storage permission to bitwarden app.

Although I still consider this a bug, because it should prompt the storage permission modal, instead of crashing the app.

God bless.
