I would like to know if there is any prospect of implementing 2FA in PASSWORD MANEGER. It is worrying that this company that works safely does not implement this function to the program. We know that several other competitors already make use of this necessary resource, thus guaranteeing their customers greater reliability in the program and brand of the supplier company.

I would also like to see 2FA, especially replacing the password with a PIN prompt instead.  What good is a password manager if you have to remember a password to get into it.  I lock my password in my OneDrive Personal Vault but it would be nice to have PIN access as well.

Hello @MauroBR

Welcome back!

  1. Kaspersky’s 2FA is for the MyKaspersky account. 
  2. Signing into the KPM local vault (with the Master password), does not sign into the MyKaspersky account. 
  3. IF 2FA has been configured, when the MyKaspersky account is signed into from KPM application, 2FA works. 

 

 

 

2FA does not work when signing out of KPM, Kaspersky experts do no see this as a security exposure or risk, despite the fact an unauthorized person could sign out of KPM & uninstall the software.

We’ve had some rigorous discussions with them about this, they’ve taken the information as “a suggestion” with no guarantees of implementation. 

Thank you:pray_tone3:

All we can do is make the suggestions. I used the fingerprint function on Android and love it.  On my Windows 10 laptop, use PIN and Facial Recognition, also love it.  Would be great if we could get PIN access to the Password Database as well on Windows.  

 

Thank you for replying.

Hello @Anthony Hill

You’re most welcome:slight_smile: !

Thank you for posting back:ok_hand_tone3: !

We agree, having alternative authentication options, for local KPM would be wonderful. 

  • For product development, some of Kaspersky’s evaluations are based on numbers, the more a feature is requested, sometimes the higher the possibility of implementation.
  • Please raise a request, use FeedbackI have a Suggestion template via Kaspersky Technical Support

 

 

  •  After submitting the case, you’ll receive an automated email with an INC+12digits reference number, then, normally, within 5 business days, a Kaspersky Technical Support human will communicate with you, also by email, you may continue to engage with the Kaspersky Technical Team via email or by updating the INC in your MyKaspersky account.
  • Note: the process may take a very long time, each request is measured against many benchmarks and not all requests are successful

When feedback from the Kaspersky Technical Team is available, please share it here in the Kaspersky Community? 

Thank you:pray_tone3:

Already put a request in. I will let everyone know what the outcome is.  Hopefully more people reading this will put one in as well.
