Just getting started, successfully imported my big vault. Yay! But I have a couple questions I can’t find help with in the help videos or pages here. Hoping someone will have advice:
- Should I install both the MAC desktop/native app and the Safari browser (my main one though I’ll put on the backup browser I use too)?
I THINK I should have both so I’ll have offline access but I already installed the Safari extension and now when I go to BitWarden’s client download page, I can’t get to the desktop/native app through the link there. Instead it takes me back to the App Store with the OPEN icon there indicating I already have the browser extension (which I knew). I don’t see a way to get the desktop/native app. I looked for other online discussions and see in 2020ish or so, there were some issues with these 2 clients and now wonder if the browser download automatically includes the desktop/native .app too? Looks like that was a good guess because I just found the .app in Applications & dragged it to my doc & opened up fine! But I’m perplexed as to why there was no notification 2 things were installed and not just the extension. Solved the hide&seek questions, so my final aspect of this concern: Is this sound practice to have both app & browser extension on MacBook? Just feeling a little insecure not finding more detail on them working together, augmenting each other, etc. I like to understand
- Is it posible to have both a PIN and a Biometric option to Unlock the vault or must you choose just one? I think 1 is the answer but can’t find that either.
Any help appreciated.
