At the moment, in both the Windows and Android versions, I find that
bringing up fingerprints to check (whether my own or my contacts) is a
rather convoluted process that I have trouble remembering. On Android
for instance, it something like Menu - Settings - Chat Security - View
Fingerprint but I always forget and try the simpler way, i.e. via the
contact name, which I think will work before remembering. For Windows
it's Tools - Options - Security - Chat and then the window has to be
expanded to show the full fingerprint and it's very hard to read them
in this Window as they're not divided into four character blocks, so
it's very hard to keep track of where you've got to when checking
What I would like to request is that instead, users can long press on
a Contact (or their own Account name) and have "Verify fingerprint" in
the popup menu.
For Windows, we could use right-click instead but as this doesn't seem
to currently be implemented for anything, rather than add this just
for one option it might be simpler just to add an extra icon, next to
Share desktop, for "Verify fingerprint". For verifying own
fingerprints, this could be an option under the Status dropdown as
this lists each account individually, so "Verify fingerprint" could be
added under "Set status message".
Thanks for reading.
