Okay, these are more suggestions rather than questions. But let me spit it out.
I know BW development requires a lot of programming knowledge and software engineering, but I’ve been asking myself a few days now if this could be possible:
- Any chances to use the Android/iPhone device as a desktop vault unlocking method?
Let me explain this better. Currently, I’ve been using a very handy piece of software called Rohos Logon Key. I really like it because it eases the way I can access my Windows laptop via mobile auth.
So I’ve been doubtful if it’s even possible to use BW mobile app to unlock the extension’s vault by a single touch on the fingerprint sensor or unlock pattern on the same network (or even on mobile data, in specific cases [very complicated to implement]).
I know this sounds like a crazy idea, but it would really come in handy for certain cases.
Duo 2FA app could enable me to do that (although I believe it’s only for log in, not session unlocking), but I’m just asking if it could be possible via BW’s native app.
Striked text, more details inside.
Found what I was looking for here:
- Something like push notifications on the mobile device would also do the job.
I had something else to ask, but I think these are the enough for now. I’m a very forgetful person.
EDIT: That would also be useful to authenticate in case the master password is re-prompted for some items (like “Please re-enter your master password/PIN or, optionally, check your mobile device to see/unlock this item/login/secure note”). I know it’s hard to do, but it’s just an idea.
