Watchtower not working for password fields in documents?


I have the situation where I need to store a file + password - previously I stored the file as "document" and the password as "password" (so I had 2 items in my vault). Watchtower was working perfectly fine and showed some passwords as breached (which is not good, but watchtower is working).
When I now add the password as additional password field to the document, then watchtower isn't complaining at all, is that per design or is watchtower simply not checking custom password fields?

    Hi @mpreishu,

    I believe that you are correct: Watchtower doesn't check non-primary password fields (and the custom password field in a Document item is not primary).

    Storing a password in a Document item is not conventional, but I will make sure to pass your feedback to our team. Thank you!

    If you have other questions, we are here to help. Thanks! :+1:
