Show/hide password with alt-key [desktop]


Recommended Posts

I have had a nuisance with this feature because I use ALT + TAB combination a lot to switch windows. While I have Enpass focused and it is unlocked using this combination keys, the program reveals the password. Imagine if I have someone behind me looking at my monitor and Enpass reveals my password because I pressed a simple ALT+TAB combination. Is there a way to disable this feature?

I have the exact same issue as Marco. Pressing the Alt key should not show passwords by default.

I am frankly a bit surprised that a password manager would make displaying passwords such an easy action: shouldn't it be "Security first" ?

It's perfectly fine if some users are ok with it and can make it possible via an opt-in setting though.

But many people use Alt + Tab to switch between applications, so some corresponding tests should be part of the tests performed on Enpass when adding new features.

By the way, this issue does not occur on Windows 10, only on Ubuntu as far as I know.
