Question about 2FA for the Bitwarden Vault


#1

Hi.

Quick question about 2FA for Bitwarden : I notice that whenever I access the Bitwarden vault on the web, I am required to authenticate using Duo.

However, if I access the macOS Bitwarden app, or the Bitwarden extension in Safari, I am never prompted to authenticate with Duo.

Is there a reason for that, or am I missing something?

Thanks.

You should be asked for 2FA the first time you log in. After that, your vault is merely ‘locked’ unless you log out and you won’t be asked for 2FA when unlocking.

This might be relevant:

Thanks - that’s perfectly clear :point_up:
