Add ability to hit "Enter" after Authenticator Code

Post by bowesp » Tue Sep 22, 2020 1:26 pm

I know this is a minor annoyance but it drives me crazy personally.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click Connect to your OpenVPN Profile
2. Enter Authenticator Code popup appears
3. Enter Authenticator Code
4. Click Enter Button on your keyboard

Actual Result:
Nothing Happens, you have to click the send button with your mouse

Desired Behavior:
Clicking Enter is equivalent to clicking the Send Button

I just tried and TAB TAB ENTER works. You're right though. If I enter 6 characters just submit it for me might be even better.

Here's why it's a problem... :)

If a user has 2FA enabled (which should be everyone!), when entering the code (happens daily or more) they have their phone in one hand and are typing with the other. It requires a lot more focus and effort to switch devices and submit the code than is usual for a standard form entry action.

(Why yes. I did create an account just to post this. That's how annoying it is :P )
