Issue: I have to enter the Mac PW every time I unlock the BW extension before it lets me then use my biometric method of access.
I am experimenting with a Safari-only workflow on MacOS. I have been using Brave with its Bitwarden extension without issue but Brave sucks battery. After I enabled the Bitwarden extension in Safari and ensured I was signed into both it and the Mac BW Desktop app, I have been getting repeated prompts to enter my Mac password in order to access the Bitwarden Safari extension. It’s freakin’ annoying.
The prompt is: ‘Bitwarden is trying to Bitwarden Safari. Enter the password for the user Insert Name to allow this.’ There is a large lock icon with small a bw icon.
I have to enter the Mac PW every time I unlock the BW extension before it lets me then use my biometric method of access. I also I get prompts to enter my Mac password to access the Bitwarden extension as I jump between pinned tabs, most of which need a password that is saved in Bitwarden but they are already signed in. It’s appears a bit inconsistent; in these cases, I haven’t attempted to access the BW extension manually. The Mac BW desktop app is still functioning without issue.
I have the BW extension set to Lock at either immediate or 1 minute. I have the two biometric settings selected.
I have a feeling it’s something very simple I’m missing.
