I need to keep peace in the Family; need to allow a special, custom Master Password of 7 characters length.
How can I force your system to allow it?

    I'm sorry, but It isn't possible to use less than 10 characters for accounts.

    This should be disclosed somewhere before signing up. We will be reconsidering as a result.

    Please instead consider using a stronger Master Password. Consider that all of your other information is protected by this password. Choosing an insecure one is setting yourself up for failure. Thanks.


  • It is disclosed before signup @dbadoug

    A long master password is essential to maintain security and 1Password would be negligent if they encouraged insecure practices.

    Good point, @darrenNZ. I’d forgotten about that. Thanks for pointing it out.
