This is also occuring for me - I have tried disabling and re-enabling the desktop application with and without restarts in between, also restarting the browser sometimes. It has worked once and never worked since.
I’m not the one here to tell you what to do but if there’s anything good that can be taken out of this rollout, it’s that the desktop builds need to be tested better on non-dev machines, and with actual use-cases. This could have been caught with some extra info in the PR on how to reproduce the MSS and verify it works.
Thanks for that feedback, it is appreciated. Unfortunately we’re seeing issues with Desktop coming from macOS App Store which does not have Beta publishing/testing programs (similar to TestFlight for iOS).
We’ll look into, however, setting up a Beta program for UWP for the Windows Store so we can capture issues through there, otherwise we do thoroughly try to test our apps through what publishing methods are available to us before an official release.
Thanks for the response! I’m not just a man of words so I submitted a PR with a pull request template which could bring things like these to light. I’m not sure this would have caught the entitlements necessary, but I’m sure a manual process for that can be worked in, and eventually automated. We use it in some of my repositories and just manually writing things out often makes people more aware of what needs to be tested in addition to CI
I now got browser biometric unlock working in Edge Chromium too after v1.48 was officially released in MS Store
Now we just need to have the Vault timeout setting working after enabling biometric unlock. No matter which timeout I choose I always have to unlock my vault if I shut down the browser. If I don’t use biometric unlock the vault timeout setting seems to work fine. I only want the browser to lock when the system locks.
@tgreer With the new 1.24.5 touch is is working with Edge browser! Only is it possible to enable touch id as primary authentication method? Now when i click the bitwarden icon in edge is have to click on “Unlock with biometrics”, this is not user friendly, why!?!?
Hi Bitwarden Friends, there was a desktop update today to 1.24.5 that appears to address browser biometrics for Mac. Note that if you have been testing recently, you will need to uncheck and recheck the desktop setting for ‘Enable browser integration’ in the newest app. As mentioned earlier, the news on the Bitwarden blog will be our official announcement
