Bitwarden's Firefox optional permissions?

From the addon options:
Optional permissions for added functionality:
Exchange messages with programs other than Firefox

What added functionality are we talking about? Should I deactivate it?

I think it is for “unlock with biometrics” option.
It is done through an integration with the Bitwarden desktop app. So it needs the “Exchange messages with programs other than Firefox” permission. (note: If you are using Safari you don’t need the Bitwarden desktop app integration. Since, safari has a native API for “touchID/faceID”)

You don’t even need the extension. The App is enough on Mac if I am right.
