Hi Bitwarden Community!
We are new migration to Bitwarden, from LastPass! So far, so good.
But . . . I have had an odd experience with a fingerprint phrase. I see it. But then through the long-ish setup of Bitworden and Authy and a Windows desktop and an Android phone, using all of apps and Chrome interfaces – this happened:
At one point I was requested to approve something and the fingeprint was DIFFERENT from the original phrase.
I though “oh, okay, each device has its own fingerprint phrase”. So I approved whatever it was. And now don’t have any idea what I approved. (We haven’t really migrated yet or started putting in a lot of passwords so the risk now is zero. However, maybe later . . . )
But then after more reading (lots of reading) I started to think there is “only one fingerprint phrase”. So where did the other come from? What did I approve?
I’m concerned that (1) I don’t understand fingerprints and (2) I may have approved something I sholudn’t have and (3) maybe I should start all over and that strangely and surprisingly I’ve been compromised.
Could there be more than one fingerprint phrase associated with one account, deployed on a Windows desktop and an Android phone? Is there a way of figuring this out?
I read how lots of people are converting from LastPass (hurrah!) and that is is so simple. I thiink maybe you are not paying close enough attention. This is NOT because Bitwarden is not simple, but rather that security has a lot of details.
