Will this also be available for browser extensions?
Hey @9elsen I believe the team is steadily working on bringing these features to additional clients.
As indicated in the current roadmap the first half of 2023 is set to have Passwordless login options as one of the many focuses for the team. I believe this may help to expand this new feature to the browser extension, and possibly more additional options to come.
Very exciting year ahead!
The risk of using passwordless logins though is, it makes it easier to forget what your master password is at least potentially. I like having to type mine once or more every day, as it reinforces it instinctively (at least, that’s how my brain works). YMMV.
You should have an option to turn off the passwordless
Hey @Bryan2023 you have to enable approvals from the settings menu for it to be enabled. Even when enabled, it only works on devices that are ‘known’, that you have logged into at least once with your master password. More info here: https://bitwarden.com/help/log-in-with-device/
My master password is linked to a story, that is how I will always remember it. I really like the step-up in usability, which makes it easier to onboard less tech-savvy family members, while retaining security.
