Does 1password regularly generate new passwords for my accounts? How often?

It seems that regularly changing passwords is a good idea. Does 1Password do this? How often?

    That is old advice, no longer considered valuable. If you have strong passwords (such as the ones generated by 1PW), no need to change them unless you have reason to suspect they have been compromised.

    And no, 1PW does not automatically change passwords. You have to decide to do it yourself, and then 1PW can generate a password.

  • Thank you. I'm new to these conversations, so I appreciate the update.

    danco is spot on. As he alluded the latest NIST guidelines include the following:

    Verifiers SHOULD NOT impose other composition rules (e.g., requiring mixtures of different character types or prohibiting consecutively repeated characters) for memorized secrets. Verifiers SHOULD NOT require memorized secrets to be changed arbitrarily (e.g., periodically). However, verifiers SHALL force a change if there is evidence of compromise of the authenticator.

    (section of NIST Special Publication 800-63B)

    I hope that helps. Should you have any other questions or concerns, please feel free to ask.
