Dedicated TOTP screen

Feature name

  • TOTP Codes screen

Feature function

It would be great to have a screen dedicated for the TOTP codes, and display all the codes on a UI similar to Google authenticator or Lastpass Authenticator. There could be a button on the bottom bar (where there is Vault, Generator, Settings), there could be a 4th button for 2FA or TOTP.
This would make Bitwarden a great alternative to the mainstream Authenticator apps.

Great shout - I have no votes available but this would be my number one pick from all the suggestions so far :+1:t2:

I don’t need an overview since I use auto fill. In rare cases a search from the vault will do just fine.

More generally, a specific search filter for entries with TOTP would be useful. There already is a feature request for that, I think.

Yes. There it is:

@DenalB a filter is not exactly what I suggested. I meant an actual screen dedicated to the TOTP, (similar to the only screen you see on Google authenticator.). This would allow for a complete, seamless replacement of the authenticator app, and make Bitwarden a single, only solution for all logins. (I know it already is, but that would make it more clear and easy to other users too)

Now I know what you mean. Nice feature. :slight_smile:

I understand what you suggested. However in my use I don’t have the need because I search, access and use TOTP codes differently. I don’t see the use and prefer a more minimalist Bitwarden with just enough powerful features.

For my use case, I’m not allowed to install the Bitwarden app on my office device. But I’m allowed to use any TOTP app to login from anywhere.

For the most part, I juggle between my personal device and office device. For my personal device, I can use the browser extension to login and generate TOTP. But when it comes to office device, I need to go to my mobile, log in to Bitwarden app, search for the account, then view the TOTP and then type it in.

Whereas in other apps, I need to just look at the screen and then type in.
This is one reason I moved my TOTPs to a dedicated app!
I really wish there was a dedicated tab in the mobile apps to view all the TOTPs.

An extra screen only for the current TOTPs would be quite nice. In my opinion it is a quite an effort to navigate to an credential item just for copying the TOTP.
A screen which shows alle TOTP directly would be quite handy. This could replace the “Tools” screen, because this one only contains links to the webview and can easily be placed in the settings screen.

Bump. I don’t know how this is a thing for the mobile apps and browser extensions. Currently its a 3 click minimum to get to TOTPs if we are filling them in manually. There should always be a 2FA/TOTP tab no matter what platform you are on. This will drive adoption and likely premium sales :wink:

+1, was used to this on Lastpass, switched to Bitwarden and would love to have this feature

This would be really nice. Even for the browser extension too.

I run “Authy” with a copy of the TOTP seeds just to get the convenience I need. Bitwarden’s TOTP support is “just enough”. TOTP needs to be a first class citizen, like username and password.

This improvement should be included now. It’s the only thing left to completely forget about Lastpass. I constantly have to use Lastpass authenticator and occasionally access Lastpass to back up Lastpass authenticator content.

Hi @Turok_KJB, and thanks for the feedback! The team is actively engaging with this concept but we don’t have anything to share at this moment.

I think no more words needed.
Anyway.
A Bitwarden 2FA app would be cool.
No more google Authenticator or MS Authenticator or similar.

Juts Bitwarden…

Feature name

  • Create unified 2FA view by adding 2FA as a type in My Vault view, listing 2FA codes from any logins attached with TOTP

Feature function

  • What will this feature do differently? - Currently you need to be on the website in question for a good user experience in copying 2FA code. If not, you need to search for the login attached to the 2FA code. What I am proposing is to add 2FA codes as a type in the My Vault view. Currently there is only Login, Card, Identity, and Secure Notes. This would allow any logins that have a TOTP associated to be listed in one view.
  • What benefits will this feature bring? - This is a feature present in nearly all 2FA apps. A screenshot below is from Google Authenticator. I have multiple desktop apps that require me to search up my specific login from BitWarden to retrieve the 2FA code. For users managing a smaller set of 2FA logins which may include desktop app, this creates a more easily accessible way to retrieve 2FA codes.
