Windows Hello - let us configure a default when multiple registered methods

Community Member

In Windows Hello I have my face and my fingerprint registered as authentication methods.
My face is the one I use all the time - and my ThinkPad is usually closed, making the fingerprint reader inaccessible. It's a useful secondary option, but not one I use very much.
When I open 1Password it ALWAYS wants me to use my fingerprint. I'd like to configure that it should default to "Face first" like Windows does.

1Password Version: 8.4.1
Extension Version: 2.2.2
OS Version: Win 11

    Hi @melvynadam:

    Unlocking with Windows Hello is handled by Windows itself, so we don't have any control over the default option. We ask Windows to authenticate, so then Windows takes over and does its thing.

    That's very weird.
    Windows Hello behaves differently for 1P than for the other scenarios in which it's invoked.
    Whatever, I'll only be using it for another month and then I'll be switching to Mac OS.
