Use a different password for ProtonPass
I don't use ProtonMail as my default mail service, therefore my Proton account is protected by a generated password that I can't and don't want to remember (using Bitwarden).
Having a way to use a completely different password than the one of my proton account to unlock Proton Pass will be a dealbreaker for me.

After purchasing Proton Pass, you realize you’ll NEVER be able to access your email account from a public computer again for fear of giving away your master password. That is how critical this feature is.
Proton in general and Proton Pass specifically have been a colossal disappointment to me. I read the info and was enamored w the privacy aspects and purchased two year Unlimited. It's things like this that drive me around the bend. How could engineers not anticipate something like this? Separate Pass password yes, absolutely. I'll stay on topic here, but there are so many other issues with Pass that prevent me switching from Keeper even though I have Pass license.
A different password and login session is an absolute requirement for switching from LastPass and Authy to using ProtonPass.
What also would be nice, with this option, is a recovery method for the family.
In case something happens defined members can access the vaults.

This missing feature is keeping me from using your service for passwords. I do not presently have a need for encrypted emails yet (no other people to send to) I have to login to Proton with a very long random password from Bitwarden. I am wanting to get away from them. But I cannot remember the 20+ character password.

No brainer NEEDS separate password ASAP!
Critical for security reasons to have unique seperate password/phrase to get into our Pass-similar to 1Password-that only the user has access to and is encrypted. Thanks.
Thomas Wagner commented
This is essential, so that we can set up a Pass-Phrase or password which is easier to remember(And potentially less secure) than a generated one, but still enjoy the security of a generated password for our general proton account.
An option to turn using a different password as on our proton account with a toggle would be nice as well. Till then i will continue using Bitwarden.

The fact that Protonpass remembers my password all time is so bad. My master password is rather complex, I want to type at least once a day so I don't forget it.
so having a different password for protonpass and the option to unlock it with the master password or a pin
Til Goepfert commented
Absolutely. In the same vain I'd like to see better security on the browser extension allowing for it to be unlocked with something more secure than a 6-digit pin.
It's absolutely critical to have password manager and email passwords as separate things, don't think using Proton Pass is a viable option until that's possible to do.
I currently use Nordpass but want to change to Protonpass my protonmail.com password is encrypted in Nordpass so to log on to Protonpass on my iphone it appears that I have to open Nordpass and copy paste my protonmail.com password to Protonpass that's not acceptable, therefore I didn't setup Protonpass on my iphone yet I did setup the web extension, it works slightly different as I can login via Nordpass directly, but I will not be able to fully remove Nordpass for that reason.
What Protonpass needs is a separate Master password to log in and Protonmail can then access an encripted password to log on to that.
On the iphone app the Master password needs an option to Unlock with Face ID.
I accidentally saved my protonmail login credentials including 2FA to my proton pass and I forgot the password! Thank God Proton Pass was installed on an another android device. Just imagine if I had only one device and I forgot my Protonmail PW!
I would like my employees to use ProtonPass only and not Proton-Mail. This requires "only" a Proton-Pass login and no mail login.
I learnt hard way, didn't think I change password on ProtonMail thought I would be given time to make a note or copy new password! Then got logged out off Email and Proton Pass.
I sent email to Support as no way to get password, or to login to a Gmail account.
Lucky found paper copy of Gmail account.
Proton Support was great help.
Would be good have a different easier password for Proton manger.
Am using the pin number, not looked if I can setup on Phone.

You can use a unique 6 digit PIN to secure your vault. You can also set it to auto-lock
Bitwarden allows the user the option to require a password to open on Android, even if the phone is unlocked. This is because my unlock code is only a few digits, whereas the master password to my vault is much longer. I don't want anyone who can unlock my phone to instantly have access to all my passwords.
This needs to happen. Having the same credentials for mail and pass is a dealbreaker for me.
Ron Jackson commented
Completely agree. I still use Bitwarden for this reason.
