Feature Request: Shamir Key

Community Member

Please Google "Shamir backup".

Essentially it would allow us to designate the # of keys required to access 1 pass. This would solve a few issues:

a) If you have only 1 key and it's lost you're locked out and can lose access to everything.
b) If you have 1 key and it's stolen, you could potentially be breached entirely.
c) In case of death or worst case scenario, with Shamir a family or relative can have a second or third key.

The good thing about Shamir is you can specify now only how many keys, but how many of the total keys are required to gain access. Eg:

1 of 1
1 of 2
2 of 2
2 of 3
2 of 4
3 of 3
3 of 4
3 of 5
