@gcthomas:matrix.orgrochelimitHi. I have used Aegis on Android 11 for a month, so all on 2.0.3. Biometrics has needed resetting before and I successfully used a stored password from Keepass. Today I get the message again to reset biometrics, but the password is rejected, both entered manually and automatically via Keepass. Is there any hope of recovery do you think? I can't see an appropriate bug on the tracker.14:41:53

We're not aware of any issues that could cause Aegis to reject correct passwords, so my first guess would be that the password is in fact incorrect. You're sure you haven't changed the password since the last time you used it to unlock Aegis? Do you have a backup you could try to restore from?
14:58:37
@gcthomas:matrix.orgrochelimitI've used the same password and password vault for a couple of years across phones, so I don't think I could have changed it. I think I do have a partial backup from when I switched to Aegis, and key paper codes, so not all is lost. Thanks for your reply.15:02:34
@gcthomas:matrix.orgrochelimitUpdating my login problem: I deleted the Aegis appdata and imported an encrypted json backup. The password, which failed on the app, worked on the encrypted backup. It seems like something got corrupted in the app db. But all is well. 👍18:51:29
@alexbakker:matrix.orgalexbakkerStrange. How old is that backup file?18:58:09
@gcthomas:matrix.orgrochelimit17 days old20:09:54
@alexbakker:matrix.orgalexbakkerHmm. Glad to hear you were able to restore from a backup though21:03:04
@alexbakker:matrix.orgalexbakkerIt is of course possible that a (super rare) bitflip occurred and corrupted the vault file on your device21:03:31
@alexbakker:matrix.orgalexbakkerIf you find a way to reproduce this issue, indicating that this is a bug in Aegis, we'd really appreciate a bug report21:04:05
@alexbakker:matrix.orgalexbakker * Hmm. Glad to hear you were able to restore from a backup!21:04:38

Heyo, wanted to know:

  • how does Aegis generate the "usage count" for an entry?
  • after copying a key, should a "copied to keyboard" dialog be shown or is the tick enough?

Every time you tap an entry, the usage count is incremented
06:55:12
@alexbakker:matrix.orgalexbakkerWith regards to your second question, I'm pretty sure that Aegis will always show some kind of indication that a token has been copied. Is that not the case for you?06:55:20
@allen_dema:matrix.orgAllen

Thanks for clarifying.

Uhm, I was holding an entry then selecting "copy".

Actually did not know that I can copy a pin with a simple tap. It shows correctly.

@bobismymanager:matrix.orgBobIsMyManagerHey, is there any way to store general second factor secrets without having totp/hotp. Cause I want to store my matrix backup key separate from my password manager, but I also dont want to create a new vault just for that.17:21:25

No. I would just create a separate database in your password manager and store it there.
