Currently, the vault timeout action does not apply to the pop out window. But this makes no sense as the pop out window is still the vault, just a different way of interacting with the contents of the vault. Additionally, the pop out window appears to remain unlocked because it’s assumed “active” regardless if it’s in use or not. However, this is not a reasonable or safe assumption because it’s easily layered beneath other windows and can be neither active nor remembered as present resulting in a rather consistent and obvious security issue.
Since the word “vault” describes the contents, not the view, it is most reasonable to lock the pop out view by the same means as the extension view. However, if this is not viable or desirable for some reason, then the pop out should at least have its own locking mechanism.
What benefits will this feature bring?
Security, which I believe is one of Bitwarden’s main goals!
