Why is the bitwarden app needed for the plugin to use windows hello?

I was wondering, why does Bitwarden (and probably others) need to make the Bitwarden app to use windows hello integration?
Doesn’t chrome support this directly to chrome-plugins devs?

See here:

About Trey: Back then he was working for Bitwarden.


Thanks! It’s sad to see that browser have yet to adopt the standard to allow biometrics to be used to authenticate, but i’m sure it’s something they are working on for sure :smiley:
