Full Title or Meme

The ability of any Progressive Web App to access cryptography engines on the device.

Context

Problems

  • Any web site can download a Progressive Web App for use whether or not the user chooses to "install" it and thereby pretend to be the user.
  • If a wallet is installed by a web site, there is no way for another site to use it by sharing cookies as that has been blocked since 2022.
  • There is no reason for the user or any other party to trust the app as it is not known who installed the app or why.
