Is it possible to log in on random computers
when both computer and phone is gone?
Maybe possible to add more explanation-words.
For example, if your ask about potential situation:
--> F-Secure Key was installed under computer and phone. And maybe 'synced' between each other (as F-Secure Key Premium).
This devices start be broken or 'not available'.
Does it possible to login on a random device and get access to your entries? With common meanings - not. Because required your 'localstorage'-database (encrypted entries/data) and your masterpassphrase. If this two 'items' are available for you -> possible to login on random computers.
--> Or your ask about something else?
@ChNoWith all respect, is this theoretical thinking over? If something happens, then what to do?Devices might break(many reasons),but hardly at the same time.By being careful with phones & computers is possible to avoid harms.
This was what I meant
if I get robbed on both my devices then what to do
I was hoping there were some login possibilities on the web site to recover
If I have also credit cards missing/registred it would be of great help to recover the
since the devices are already comunicating with eachother and thereby sending my
passwords and numbers on the web, this was a possibility that should have been available
thank you for the answer

I'm also only F-Secure user (their home solutions) and not an official F-Secure Staff. So, it will be only my unofficial feelings.
I able to think that technically such design is possible point. BUT:
--> If F-Secure stored your localstorage (and not a revision or temporary during 'sync'-process) under their cloud:
Firstly, F-Secure should to track you and do known that it's your localstorage. Maybe it possible -> if you're able ot provide "ID of installation" and other details from "broken devices". But not sure that valid with their Terms-meanings;
There is also some knowledgebase articles (common; and about option to recover masterpassphrase):
I did ask F-Secure Key team about related concern previously (with not clear response... except what we are able to think currently).
--> Potential workaround is manual backup for localstorage from any of device OR "export"-feature:
Maybe this is not friendly step... but do not break F-Secure KEY security design for all of users. And some of users able to increase their experience with own steps (where required more effort to secure it).
Also I able to think that if 'all of synced' devices are broken (or more worst situation) -> can be much more troubles.. than 'how to retrieve' your Key-localstorage (even required to replace it for good).
