Master password is now required

I have used BW for the last 10 to 12 months. I am the only one that uses my computer and it’s not on more than a few hours per day. Just recently (last 2 days) I have had to enter my master password each time I use BW, and I have not had to do that before. Has something changed, and how can I fix it so I only have to enter it once per day?

Hi @donnyb - it sounds like your app settings got reset. Simply go into Bitwarden’s Settings page and set your Vault Timeout setting to whatever value you want. You can even set it to Never so that your vault never locks, but that is generally not recommended as secure.

Yep, that was the problem. Thanks for the help.
