I notice that there are a number of posts that are related to my question that relates to the need to enter the master password.
1 - I presume that there is general agreement that a good master password should be somewhat long and complex.
2 - Entering long, complex things using the "keyboard" on an iPhone can be a challenge and is definitely a pain in the a...
3 - It is annoyingly common for 1PW to prompt for the master password instead of using Face-ID to gain access.
4 - Your description of the Yubikey NFC device describes its use as a second factor. This implies, again, that there will be instances when mone is forces to enter the master password using the "keyboard".
5 - It is not clear to me why the user should not be able to, if they choose, to use either Face-ID or an NFC device as a substitute for the master password.
I have to tell you that every time I get the master password prompt on the iPhone 11 it makes me seriously question whether 1Password is worth the trouble. Entering that password is totally onerous.
You may consider that these alternate methods of signing-in are undesirable but if you offered them then the user could choose when convenience should trump absolute security. Until you offer the option the user (me) has no choice but to suffer.
Or are you suggesting that the use of 2FA means that the master password can be trivially simple?
I would appreciate getting your reaction, and hopefully, some change in the behavior of the app.
