In-app, web-vault and browser extension notification of Emergency Access requests

Feature name:

  • In-app / Browser extension / Web-Vault notification of an ‘Emergency Access request’.

Feature function:

  • Currently, only a single email is sent when a designated contact makes a request for emergency access to the whole vault. This poses a large security gap if the user does not notice the email, or if a malicious attacker is able to delete the original notification email.
  • Adding a smartphone notification, as well as when the user uses the app, web-vault and/or browser extension allows multiple avenues for the user to decline and prevent malicious attacks.
