Require Vault Password ~ Query

Hello Community,

What's the function of "Require Vault Password".  I observed that with Require Vault Password checked and Lock showing at creds and drop down prompting Enter your Vault password to use this Login.  I may still copy / paste creds.    Same as without Lock ? 

** Local Vault with NIS + Vista and Local Vault (backdoor) with NIS + W8.x

Re: Require Vault Password ~ Query

Well, once I figured out where and what you were talking about, I went into and edited one of my logins to Require Vault Password and saved the login.

I then looked at it in my list of Log-ins and it showed the Lock (where the User name is normally listed and no dots for password, no eye and no clipboard+ for that login.  That's where I got lost?

Where were you able to use the copy/paste?  You can't do it on the main log-in list as it is not there and in order to get to the details of the log-in you have to insert a password, so that password eye and clipboard would work.

This is on NSBU/Win 7 64 bit/IE10/Online Vault and Online Vault

I also tested it on Comcast NSS v 21.6.0.32 on Win 7 64 bit/IE10/Local Vault only and same results.

OK, once again I finally figured out what you are seeing.  From my testing, you are seeing that on a Local Vault on a 21.6.0.32 system and I can duplicate what your image is showing on my NSS Win 7 system.

However for some reason I can not get a screen shot of it on NSBU, but the drop down is changed a bit.  the Current Site/Options remain on the left side of your dropdown - between Search your Logins and Logins. Also on the right side it does not show the password - only the user name.  If you fire up NSBU you'll see the difference.

It does appear strange that it would permit you to copy the user name and password with the Local Vault in 216.0.32 products?

Yeah,  just noticed "strange" today.    So, may have always been "strange" or ?    So, with NS/NSBU Local or Online ? ~ Require Vault Password ~ No copy / paste + Lock.  

v21.6 Require Vault Password appears to prevent access to update Login creds.   But, does not really offer a second password requirement as expected.  WADU
