1) Play Store Beta distribution vs. HockeyApp 2) fingerprint reader 3) entering the master password
With the latest beta versions being distributed via Google Play Store I am wondering how can I test the beta without having it to run on all my devices? With HockeyApp I was able to test the beta on a selected phone that never left my house. Now I have the Google Play Store beta on my EDC phone too and it is easy to image what happens should there be any serious bug or my phone gets stolen or lost.
Play Store betas are OK for "normal" apps but not for ones that take your privacy at risk.
The fingerprint feature is nice but there should be an option to use the fingerprint only as an replacement for the short time PIN. At the moment the fingerprint "replaces" your master password. Should the fingerprint reader of your phone be compromised or someone manages to spoof your fingerprint, all the data within the vault would be compromised too. There is no second line of defence like an additional password.
Is using two vaults (one quick-access-vault that can be used with the fingerprint reader and an extra secure one that is master password only) the only option or do I just miss something?
BTW there should be an option to show the master password before submitting - some apps have a small eye icon and show the password as long as you press the eye. My master password is quite long and I have to switch the keyboard layout two times, this makes it very hard to enter the password without errors, especially when there is no way to check the whole thing before submitting.
I am using the German app version hence some terms might not be 100% correctt
