Login with QR code

I think it would be very useful to display the mnemonic seed phrase also as a QR code on the desktop. If you want to log in with your phone, you don’t have to type out all 12 words, but could just scan the code.


Hey, @jon4h!

Thank you for the idea! We will add this feature in the next major update! :grinning:


Good idea!

@Vova I’d like to scan one Android with another Android too. Not a biggie, but would be nice.

@Vova can you also please add the ability to adjust the pin code timeout period(about 5 minutes). I want to use the pin code functionality when trying to login with my key chain, not when I already went through the process.

@JGsource It looks like you already created a separate topic for this request, which is good. It doesn’t seem useful to repeat it here on a largely unrelated topic. Hopefully others can go vote for your original topic here:


I have just done so. :slightly_smiling_face:

Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.

The current time of locking the workspace with a PIN is too short for me.

Describe the solution you’d like

I would like to be able to customize the time it takes for Anytype to lock itself with the PIN code.

Describe alternatives you’ve considered

Other customizations could include: always locked on first boot

Btw in that one there’s a dev comment that this would be implemented in the next major release. I wonder if this is yet to happen?
