- Option to Temporarily Disable Biometrics and force PIN/Password
- What will this feature do differently? It will provide a simple way to set Mobile App to be unlocked by PIN
- What benefits will this feature bring? Security
The prompt for this request was this story.
Currently, as long as the thieves have your finger/face they can unlock Bitwarden. Whilst it doesn’t mitigate against accessing banking applications (most could do with this feature or at an OS level), it would stop access to wider passwords and 2FA codes.
The idea is that, when going into a high risk environment, the convenience of the biometrics can easily be suspended for the more difficult to use, PIN. Then reversed. This could be the enabling of the PIN as a secondary authentication, or instead.
Currently this seems to be a multi step process to disable and re-enable. I’d like it to be in the 3 dots menu.
