I would like to ask for a better locking scheme, one that is just as secure but more user friendly.
I absolutely hate the fact that 1PW locks when I switch away from the app. Think of the main use case: I need to look up a password.
What happens with this main use case is the following:
I open an app - say my Aeroplan app and I have to log in. I don't really remember my user name or password. I have to get these from 1PW.
I switch to 1PW to get my user name first. I have to enter my master password - that's cool. I copy it to the clipboard - oh do i like the fact that copy pops up immediately and that I no longer have to click twice - kudos for that!. Anyway, I copy the user name to the clipboard
I switch back to Aeroplan and paste the user name into the app.
I switch back to 1PW and I have to enter my quick unlock code so that I can now get the password.
I would like 1PW to say unlocked. I have asked for this in the past and the answer I was given was that you wanted it to be more secure, but really, nobody is going to be able to get in and take my iPad out of my hands in the time it takes to switch back and forth.
I think I have a suggestion that can retain the security and improve the usability.
I would like to suggest that there is a setting that only locks 1PW when the iPad itself locks. And that there is a timer that fires (configurable value) that locks it to the quick unlock code.
So if I was switching back and forth between apps and 1PW it wouldn't lock. The premise being that my device is on my the entire time because I am constantly using the device.
When I click the "lock button" on the device, then 1PW would lock as well. If i don't visit 1PW for longer than the timer, then 1PW would lock.
Then if 1PW is entered again after the device was locked - I have to enter the master password.
If I haven't locked the device - I am still using it constantly - but the timer has fired and then I go into 1PW, I have to enter the quick unlock code.
I believe that this is just as secure as how it functions today but drastically improves the usability.
Thanks for listening.
