The password in the log-in page for my banking app suddenly changed to all asterisks.

I was accessing my banking app with no problem until the password on the login changed to all red asterisks. I can change the password back to its original, but I am concerned as to the cause.

    Can you let us know what version of 1Password you're using and whether you're on a Mac or Windows PC?

    Also, can you let us know if you changed the password recently? Some banks (such as Citi and Fidelity) actually change the value of the fields you type in. So, when you type MyPassw0rd into the password field, they take that MyPassw0rd and put it into a hidden field and then replace the password field itself with My•••••••• or something like that. Does that sound plausible in your case?
