PIN Unlock - configurable attempts

I've seen many discussions over the past couple of years about enabling multiple attempts on PIN unlock. It would be great if this could be configurable. At the least, 3 attempts would be helpful. Sometimes you fat finger the first attempt. Thanks.

    Hey @RobTX

    Thanks for the suggestion. Wherever possible we try to pick sensible defaults instead of having preferences. Preferences add a fair amount of complexity to an already complex system, and there is also the concept of "preference bloat." That said I think this is something that is worth considering as the default... I don't think 3 attempts on the PIN before being prompted for the Master Password is unreasonable. I'll pass the suggestion along to our development and security folks for further consideration.

    Thanks!
