This application works as advertised. Scan the qr and the recovery for my system is in. Add more if needed, remove old items. Since I seldmly use the app, I sometimes forget the pin. If my fingerprint could get me in, that would be awesome!
Since the auto-focus doesn't work there's no way to scan the QRcode. That's the FIRST STEP in the process of recovering.
Unfortunately I could not scan the QR code; the image does not focus during registration.
