1P7 doesn't lock 100% visually (is visible for 0.5 to 1 second before locking)

I've noticed this bug in both browser and main app window. When calling 1p (clicking on icon or selecting 1p in browser context menu) it will show for a half second or so before locking. But shouldn't it already be locked? I mean there is a chance that sensitive information could be captured in that 0.5 seconds.

I would prefer if it flashed initially locked, then was unlocked 0.5 seconds later.

Edit: not talking about locking the program manually, but when auto-lock is supposed to be engaged. Or I restart my computer and click on 1p for the first time.

    Hi @4EverMaAT,

    Thanks for reporting it.

    It is locked but it shows a cached view (glitch) when you bring up 1Password mini as a "optimization" method to speed up the window rendering. You'll notice if you open the main interface, it'll be locked consistently but if you then bring up 1Password mini, it shows that UI glitch. This only happens if you already unlocked 1Password and then it locks on its own.

    It's a UI glitch in Windows' UI framework we're using and we're trying to force it to invalidate the cache at all times but it doesn't want to listen to us. We'll get it fixed as soon as possible.

    Create an settings option that makes the cache always a 1x1 pixel when out of focus or after xx seconds, or when locked.

    In other words, point to a different cache that is "blank".

    Hi @4EverMaAT,

    That's not how it works and even with that approach, it wouldn't work, we tried something like that by removing the last shot before it disappear.

    We'll get it fixed.
