[Feature Req] Easily find nth character of password

Please let me start by saying that I love your product and use it religiously. I even have my 81 yr old father using it on his laptop and IOS devices. My feature request is to have the app help me with those annoying sites that ask for a few random characters of a password, e.g. 2nd, 4th & 7th characters. Now that I'm using outrageously complex passwords, I find these sites difficult to access as it can be hard to read my long passwords and count through to the requested characters. It would be nice to have some sort of pop-up helper to reveal the requested characters. As this is only required for a small number of sites, you may want to consider creating a unique class of login to support this feature. For example my password for XYZ Bank needs this feature, but it's not necessary for ABC Bank. Thank you in advance and please keep up the good work.

  • @American_in_London there's an easy solution. Use the large type view and you'll see the corresponding numbers underneath.

  • Hi @American_in_London,

    I hope gazu's post was helpful. I can't think of anything to add and it's the answer I would have provided as well.

  • Perfect, this is exactly what I need. Thanks to gazu for taking the time to show me how to use this feature. Brilliant.

    @krisellis - what, Large Type? Yes.

    Ah no, I know there’s the large type option, the whole numbering of each character in the app is what I’m referring to. Available in the desktop app, but I’m not sure how to enable it in the mobile app.

    @krisellis: Thank you for the clarification! The numbering is not available on iOS I am afraid, only Large Type is.
