Change Desktop Update Notification - Replace Pop-up notfication

Feature name

  • Update Banner (Replaces Update Pop-up notification)

Feature function

  • What will this feature do differently?
    I propose that the desktop update notification be changed from a pop-up alert to a banner notification. The current problem is that 5 seconds after the application loads, I have begun entering my password. Unknowingly the pop-up has come up for ‘Bitwarden Restart to Update’ and the default focus selection is the ‘restart’ button, and when pressing ‘Enter/Return’ for my password entry, I’m actually clicking ‘Restart’ for the update because it has popped up with focus. I’m proposing that a better feature woulds be a banner or notification type icon indicating an update is available, versus what feels like a forced update.

  • What benefits will this feature bring?
    This will bring a better user experience and result in updates being applied more frequently since a user is not wanting to update when they are needing quick access to a password.

  • Remember to add a tag for each client application that will be affected
