Feature request - Option to disable Touch ID when external keyboard is connected

I generally love having Touch ID able to unlock 1Password. But when I've connected the MBP to my docking station with external screens and keyboard, it's more convenient to leave my hands at the external keyboard and type in the password. If it weren't for one thing. After a short delay the Touch ID window pops up and it takes circa 3 seconds of waiting (which requires timing!) to press Enter and type the password instead.

So my feature request is simply to have an option in 1Password to disable Touch ID in 1Password whenever an external keyboard is connected.

1Password Version: 7.2.4
Extension Version:
OS Version: macOS 10.14.2
Sync Type: 1Password.com for Teams

    Hi @jmagnuson ,

    Thanks for taking the time to write in with your request. I too, use an external keyboard/monitor with my MBP. And right now, one of my arms is getting a fair bit more exercise by reaching up for that TouchID sensor. I'll let the team know of your desire, and use case for this feature.
