Registry change

Feature name

Changing Windows registry entry into a normal naming convention

Feature function

This will change Bitwarden registry entry from Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\173a9bac-6f0d-50c4-8202-4744c69d091a to Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Bitwarden

As mentioned above Bitwarden registry entry should look like Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Bitwarden instead of random numbers and letters.

Confirming this idea, would it be something like this?Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Bitwarden\173a9bac-6f0d-50c4-8202-4744c69d091a

If that’s the idea, to make this change change you would have to change the Windows regedit

so, a possible change could this be?

  • HKCU\SOFTWARE\Mozilla\NativeMessagingHosts\Bitwarden\com.8bit.bitwarden

To make use with Native Messaging, it should be installed at system level, possibly with a MSI package which Bitwarden doesn’t have it.
