Why do I need the full desktop application?

RememBear offers a browser extension for Chrome, Firefox and Safari web browsers (more browser support coming soon).

The extension does not function as standalone app and will still require you install the full desktop application. Currently, we provide desktop applications for macOS and Windows. We do not support Chrome OS or Linux and as a result the extension will not function on these operating systems.

Why don't we just make a standalone extension? One of the key focuses of RememBear is security. When we created RememBear we wanted to make sure you and only you have access to the sensitive information you store in your Bear. As a result of some of these core security related decisions, it's not currently possible to create a standalone extension that adheres to these standards. You can learn more about how RememBear was designed in this blog post.
