This new version of HP Client Security fixes quite a few of the problems I had with an earlier version.
See older post.
Unfortunately, it also introduces several new ones:
* Some sites do not work with Client Security
It just doesn't detect the credential fields.
Ok, so be it.
As a workaround, I previously opened Password Manager, looked for the correct site and copy/pasted the password.
Someone now decided that this should not be possible anymore.
You only get a peek preview of the password and once you release the button the password is hidden.
No copy paste anymore.
I have different complex generated passwords for every single site...
Try to peek some moments to "Ko@v+ei3a!$6ohx(" and then type it in the site's password field... Useless.
I think this "additional security" isn't worth the loss of the copy/paste feature, is it?
It rather forces me to go back to easy to remember passwords...
* When Client Security correctly discovers credential fields on a known site, it offers to enter them for you.
Provide your fingerprint and done...
Unfortunately, this new version often doesn't keep focus.
So once I provide my fingerprint, it just opens a popup dialog with a list of all my credentials (for any site) instead of entering the credentials on the current site.
When I click once again in the username or password field and again provide the fingerprint, it usually works.
* For some reason, opening all dialogs also takes much more time than before.
This could be due to stronger encryption algorithms, but it is surprising that it takes up to 3 seconds on my recent Core i7 to just retrieve a password...
So, some nice improvements / bugfixes have been done, but the introduced issues spoil quite a significant part of the fun.
