Optional automatic biometrics prompt on desktop application startup

I have the Windows Bitwarden desktop app which I get to start automatically on login, which is great. The main reason I have it is to allow biometric login on the browser extension (and I’d rather not login to the desktop app).

Is it possible to have the Windows Bitwarden desktop app start automatically on login but NOT request the biometric login?


IDK why this isn’t enabled by default. It freaked me out the first time I started my computer with Bitwarden desktop installed, when the camera lights turned on and I couldn’t figure out why because Bitwarden was hidden behind another window

Please consider that the windows app does not ask for unlocking when autostarted on PC.
