Why no option to show master password?

dmoordmoor Junior Member

One of my great annoyances is every time I have to unlock 1password there is no option to show the password I typed. I am in secure location, there is no issue of password compromise. It actually compromises security as I have to keep the password short so that I don't have to keep retyping it if I make a typo.

Why not have an option to have show it as you type it?

    Hi @dmoor!

    I think this is because we have to find a default that works for most people: just because you are in a secure location does not mean that you will always be in a secure location, or that other users have this luxury every time they use 1Password.

    Our idea is to keep your Master Password as safe as possible, and this is one of the ways to do so. I don't think this is something we are going to change, but we can certainly keep your feedback in mind as we continue working on 1Password :+1:
