Hello, I have a question.
I've seen this happen before, but didn't think of it much until this time.
On a number of occasions I've had generated new passwords and within the passwords I've seen elements of data or phrases that I actually recognize. A couple times I saw family members' names or other things I know personally.
But this last time got my attention, I saw a phrase snippet within a 1P mini generated password that is never used anywhere except in the past as part of passphrases used for some older computers I have.
The instances where this snippet are not found anywhere on my Mac, except where stored and encrypted as a password within an Apple keychain item or a 1Password entry.
I understand that at times for adding entropy to passwords and phrases that data from my Mac might be used; but I don't think that any of that should be from data stored and encrypted within the 1Password vault. This really can't be a coincidence, as I seriously never use these nonsensical terms that are very known, but only ever to myself.
This is a bit concerning to me as I trust that generated passwords are unique and most definitely not gleaned from other passphrases or data that I use and have stored within my 1P archives. Some of the data within my vaults are highly confidential and I would not want to see any snippets of information stored within my vaults used as a base for passwords that might accessible as breached data from the servers around the world on which I might have an account.
Please comment, and if necessary, contact me about this off the public forum.
