User reviews
This add-on relies on an external service (id1.vx4.eu) which is no longer avaliable. In the past two months, there has been no response from the maintainer to the issue raised at https://gitlab.com/adessoAG/FIDELIO/webauthn-eID4FF/-/issues/1 nor his eMail on the company he is working for. It looks like the project was abandoned without any notice.
