Simplify Duo log-in process

The process to log-in to Bitwarden in a browser, on accounts secured with Duo MFA, is unnecessary long and can be simplified. The process includes 8 steps:

  1. Click on the Bitwarden browser extension
  2. Confirm email, continue
  3. Enter master password, log in
  4. Click “popout extension”
  5. Click “Launch Duo”
  6. Approve push notification
  7. Close “Bitwarden successfully logged in” browser tab
  8. Close Bitwarden popout window

I believe that the following steps are all within Bitwarden control and can be consolidated/removed:

  • Step 2 - Can be consolidated into the master password prompt screen (step 3) or default to the last used email.
  • Steps 4 and 5 can both be removed since Bitwarden knows that I use Duo for MFA. There is no value in users clicking these two buttons. At the very least, these two steps can be consolidated into one step.
  • Steps 7 and 8 - Automatically close both the browser tab and the popout window since it’s Bitwarden that opens them. There is no value for the users in these tab and popout window.
