Lock button in Chrome extension

If I want to lock my Chrome Bitwarden extension I have click on the extension, go to “Settings” and then click on “Lock now”.

It would be really helpful if when you click the Chrome Bitwarden extension and it opens the “Tab” page there is an immediate and easy to find button to “Lock now”, rather than burying it in “Settings”.

Thanks!

You can also use a keyboard shortcut

That’s helpful - I just configured that on chrome://extensions/shortcuts! Thank you

Thanks - I’ve added a keyboard shortcut to “Lock the vault” and selected “Global” rather than “in Chrome”, but if I press the keyboard shortcut it locks the Bitwarden vault in my Chrome extension but NOT the Bitwarden Windows desktop app. Can you advise? Thank you.

The desktop app has its own set of shortcuts in the file menus, so the chrome shortcut won’t perform the action. I believe the ‘global’ option just means that the chrome window doesn’t need focus for the shortcut to work.

Got it, thanks.

Here’s something weird then - I set the keyboard shortcut lock as “Ctrl+L” in the Chrome extension, which is also the same as the shortcut in the Windows desktop app. If I do that it somehow interferes with the desktop app so Ctrl+L no longer works on the desktop app when that window is the one in focus. It is as if “Ctrl+L” can either be on the desktop app or Chrome extension but not both. Is that strange? THanks

To use it for both, you’d want to limit the scope to just Chrome. Otherwise you’d need to define a different global lock shortcut.

Thanks - this works!

Having a lock button in the browser extension option menu would be great.
