Add Web Interface
The absence of a nice web interface, such as what you have for Proton Mail, Proton Drive makes this almost a non-starter for me. I imported several folders of password data through your excellent import tool, but then found myself returning to my old password tool because Proton Pass is just not maintainable via the small extension window provided. It's much easier for me to use a keyboard and monitor to do my maintenance rather than just phone app or via the small extension window. A good first effort...but some work on a web user interface is needed for sure.

I hope you can make it so the layout can show not just title and username, but also URL and notes.
Please have a look at this KeepassXC screenshot to see what I mean:
Even bitwarden doesn't do this and I cannot switch to it because of the mediocre overview. I hope Proton Pass can be the one that let's me switch to an online password manager.
Imagine you are on vacation and you lost your phone. You have access to the hotel's PC but you are not allowed to install extensions on the available browsers. It should be possible to access the password's vault just by logging in via the website.
a Dashboard with all the logins and such things would be great... I agree with you, they can make the webapp lock like the extension after some minutes without checking the Tab or something like that

this is hugely important; whether a desktop app or something more like vault.bitwarden.com, there needs to be a way to access the tool with more than the small space available via the extension or on mobile. even if we could pop out the extension window, that would be helpful
This is my biggest issue with Proton Pass for now, if I want to access a password from a computer that isn't mine (so I don't want to install a browser extension) I just can't

The existing extension window would function beautifully.
Perhaps, as an intermediary to the monumental task of building a secure native application, or even a web portal, an option to resize the extension window or break it out into a dedicated extension tab like the settings menu.
As it stands, managing my data is painfully cumbersome, and I need to squint at the corner of my monitor.

I suspect not many people realize the implications and security challenges of a full web based application for a password safe. This does make it a better user experience and helps address some barriers to entry for customers. But, this brings some security challenges. If there ever is a web based app, I would suggest Proton allow users to opt in for an additional password to decrypt their vault(s). Very similar to the legacy 2 password login required when Proton Mail started, but only for Proton Pass. I'm good with single password and a second factor for all other Proton products.
And the ability to select multiple logins at a time to move to a different vault or trash…

I agree, and on top of that the extension cannot be pinned, so every time you click outside of the extension, which you have to do several times when setting up an account, you lose it. I had to make multiple small saves to a new addition to get everything in. Still testing it out, but for now by primary is still an IronKey.
I agree with most of the comments. Also realize that Proton Pass was just rolled out recently and would assume more features are in development. I think web access is table stakes in order to entice users to migrate from their existing pw managers.

This is 100% necessary there should be a web access for Proton Pass like all the other services Proton provides.
The import features worked great. But even adding a single custom login was SO tedious when every time I click out of the window to copy something it minimises the plugin and forgets what I was entering.
I absolutely agree with you, this is today one of the most important downside of Proton Pass, that makes it unusable now. I have to use a second password manager alongside Proton Pass for this reason.
Need Web Interface. I like to do alot of my "Proton Stuff" via website. I use the apps too, but that is for certain things. Most of the time I use my computer and I use the web interface most of the time. I really don't like using extensions and trying to do stuff in a little window really sucks. Besides I use windows, Mac and Linux. I also use different computers throughout the day. I like to just go the website login and do my stuff. Not having to download an extension on whatever browser/computer I am on and login and have my info on whatever computer that is not mine. Also trying to organize your passwords or add new things to a little window really sucks (Yeah said that already).
Some of use, work in an cooperative environment, where you can't add any browser add-ons.
Currently, I won't be able to Proton Pass.
I agree that this would be useful and I'd really like to see the web interface be accessible via a button in the regular Proton apps (alongside Mail, Calendar, Drive, etc.).
