Make Windows Hello the default auth method

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

in the UWP its possible to start the app and just use Windows Hello, would like to see this in the new version of Enpass too.

And atm after Enpass locked the current session, you've to manually select Hello to unlock, it's just an extra step, but after a while it gets really annoying :-) 

 

thanks

Version 6 is out and the problem still exists.

What's the purpose of Windows Hello? Right, to Login without Password! 

So why do I have to type in my Masterpasswort the first time I open up Enpass?

For now Windows Hello integration in Enpass is really usless.

If Windows Hello is enabled, please use Hello as the default authentication method. Currently, I need to tap the little face icon first - one step too many.

Thanks!

Agreed - this is ultra-annoying. I need to get my Android Enpass to get my master password to get my Windows Enpass. And the extra click on the face icon is plain unnecessary.

Off-topic: why didn't this thread show up when did a global search for "hello" in this forum?

Yes this is really annoying. Please imporve. At Android or Iphone you also don't have to click on validate per fingerpringt!

I'm usign a Yubikey, and for startup my password/PIN is asked anyway. one my identity has been confirmed at OS level, Enpass should accept Windows Hello (Yubikey in this case) as enough to be able to start enpass.

A 'autounlock at start if Windows Hello is accepted / key is connected' option should exist for this use-case.
