I’m working for a company developing a web application using the Webauthn API.
The Webauthn API is now supported by all major browsers, but for Samsung Internet it must first be explicitly enabled via internet://flags .
Because the setting is located in internet://flags, it is listed under a warning explaining that changing these settings may be detrimental to the user’s security and/or privacy - This does not exactly inspire confidence for our users.
It is unfortunately easier to tell our Samsung Internet users to change their default browser to some other browser than having them mess around in developer settings menus.
My question is:
Do you plan on enabling the Webauthn API by default anytime soon, or will we have to ask our dear Samsung Internet users to migrate to other browsers in order to use our application?
I don’t know the scale required for you to prioritize certain issues, but for reference we’re talking somewhere around 1 million Samsung Internet users who would be highly incentivized to leave Samsung Internet in 2022 due to the application’s central position in national infrastructure.
