Mobile HID Device

Feature name

  • Using the mobile bitwarden app as a HID device

Feature function

  • Sometimes I don’t wanna log into my bitwarden account on untrusted machines
  • Typing out long passwords is inconvenient and error prone
  • Sending passwords via insecure channels is also not ideal
  • I would like to use my mobile app to make my phone emulate a keyboard and type a password for me

So essentially: hook up phone to computer → authenticate to mobile bitwarden app → hit “type password” → phone emulates keystrokes on computer and types password

Similar functionality is available in Authorizer. But sadly no other password manager integration that I could see. Having this would allow me to really switch to single master password like I have wanted to, but as it stands there are too many times I need to sign in to a device that doesn’t have Bitwarden on it and where I cannot access a web browser from it.
