I've been going through my Watchtower list to strengthen my passwords. This involves a lot of "current password, new password, confirm new password" fields. Unfortunately, 1password X has been a bit frustrating on these fields.
- It often does fine with entering current password
- Then I click on the new password field, I choose a generated password, and it enters the generated password in the new password field, which is great, but also overwrites what was entered in the 'current password' field, and leaves the 'confirm new password' field blank.
- It now asks to save my new password, which if I do, I will have to go to my 1password history to find what to re-enter on the "current password" field that was mistakenly overwritten in step 2.
- Instead I will cancel the whole thing, manually copy my current password from 1password, generate a new password and save it, then paste the old password from clipboard.
Ideally, the password generator would be better about not overwriting the 'current password' field, and would enter the generated password into both 'new password' and 'confirm new password' fields.
For an example site that has this behavior, you can test it out on icloud.com
