1Password 7 password generator


I use 1Password from 2011 and really love it.
I do not switch to the subscription model and prefer the standalone model.

I just bought 1Password 7 for Windows and i'm a bit disappointed with the password generator (and sluggishness of the application).
I compare with 1Password 4 which i use daily.
On 1Password 4 we have more options for generating a password :

  • Specify number of symbols and digits (very useful for PIN codes)
  • French list of words

Do you plan to get the same level of generation for password ?

1Password Version: 7.1.567
Extension Version:
OS Version: Windows 10
Sync Type: N/A

    Hi @ygbillet,

    Thanks for writing in.

    Please make sure you update 1Password, it should be at 7.2.580, which may also address your sluggishness issue.

    Specify number of symbols and digits (very useful for PIN codes)

    We will add a PIN tab but there is no plan to specify the number of symbols or digits for the characters tab.

    We'll reuse the newer password generator from 1Password X:

    French list of words

    This is likely to come later then we finish the roll-out of our new translation feature on 1Password.com but no promises yet.
