Why does F-Secure IDP make life so complicated for users?
I don't understand how F-Secure Identity Protection works or at least it doesn't make any sense for me...
Let's assume a customer buys a 5-seat licence, because he/she has 5 devices (desktop, laptop, subnotebook, Apple smartphone, Android tablet). He installs FSC IDP on each device and uses the same subscription code to license them. Yet, passwords entered on one device still don't auto-sync to the others.
User has to generate one-time codes to sync pwds from desktop to laptop, from desktop to notebook, from laptop to notebook, from tablet to notebook, etc. Those one-time codes can only work if both devices are within the user's physical reach and turned on at the same time (which condition may even be impossible to fullfill, e.g. imagine two desktop PCs located at home and at the dacha, respectively...) Furthermore, the one-time codes apparently don't even have a lasting effect, they authorize just a single pwd sync event?!
But why do we pay for a subscription, as the above described procedure is even worse than keeping a USB pendrive with you all the time and exporting-importing pwds manually! (Except that FSC IDP on mobile OS doesn't support manual action, likely to force users buy subscription.)
Logically, pwd sync should automatically syncronize the data to a central repository, which is shared by all devices using the same licence key and the subscription fee shall pay for upkeep of such cloud infrastructure. F-Secure Corp. apparently doesn't want to do that (due to GDPR, scandinavian mindset or lack of manpower?) But couldn't you use blockchain or other advanced tech to solve the problem, because the current method is practically unusable?
Furthermore, why can't we tag passwords as belonging to Worklife / Private_life in FSC IDP? Thus when someone changes career or becomes unemployed, he/she could simply choose to delete all passwords tagged as Worklife and walk away quickly in a clear state, instead of spending a lot of time manually purging ex-work passwords through the GUI.
Thanks for your kind attention, Sincerely: Tamas Feher, Hungary.
