Anytype can update before entering pin code

WHAT IS THE BUG

It is possible to check for updates and update Anytype before the pin code is entered to access the user data.

HOW TO REPRODUCE IT

  1. Open Anytype but do no enter the pin code
  2. Open the menu > Anytype > Check for updates
  3. If an update is available, you can click Update and install the new version.

THE EXPECTED BEHAVIOR

I would expect like most OSes (not sure about applications that require a login) that you can only update AFTER authenticating/logging in.

SYSTEM INFORMATIONS

  • OS:
    Windows 11
  • Device:
    Dell XPS 15
  • Anytype Version:
    0.27.0

ADDITIONAL CONTEXT

I don’t see an immediate security risk of updating before entering the pin but it feels wrong…
