Hi, Is there a way or a feature where biometric access using Windows Hello or FaceID or maybe even a PIV like Yubico could be possible as an alternative to entering the Master password?

    Hi @Kelh

    At the moment, this feature has not been implemented yet on Mac and Windows OS but new Feature Requests are always welcome and you can submit such request here.

    However, I tested Face ID log in on an iPhone 12 and it worked perfectly as expected on several attempts without any issue.

    Hey @Kelh,

    Should it consider Mac or Windows computers, there is no option to use biometrics or such devices as Yubico to access F-Secure ID Protection/KEY.

    Option to use FaceID or TouchID or your fingerprint is only available on mobile devices.

    Thank you.

    I should have clarified this would be for Windows computers and MacBooks.

    Not yet. We have those features in the backlog, but they are not yet on any roadmap.
