Feature Request: Character Counter

This is for both iOS and Mac OS. It is separate from the post I made earlier today. There are two parts to the request.

1) The password generator should include the ability to set a max character length because many websites have that requirement. They shouldn’t, as any security conscious person knows, but many still do.

2) When creating OR editing a password, it should display the number of characters to help with both min and max length requirements.

    Hi @data_cat!

    1) The password generator should include the ability to set a max character length because many websites have that requirement. They shouldn’t, as any security conscious person knows, but many still do.

    This is already available in both 1Password for Mac and 1Password for iOS when you generate a character-based password:

    2) When creating OR editing a password, it should display the number of characters to help with both min and max length requirements.

    At the moment you cannot see this information directly when you edit an existing password, but if you save it first, you will be able to see the number of character it has if you click on Show in Large Type next to the password in question.

  • I didn’t realize that was there during creation because I always use Memorable passwords, which does not have that feature in iOS. I haven’t checked Mac OS yet, but I think it’s the same.

    I also just tried using Show in Large Type on a saved password in iOS and didn’t see the character count anywhere. Can you include a screenshot of where it appears?

    @data_cat

    Large Type character counting is not available in iOS.

  • Regardless, I think the solution is to add character counting to the memorable password generator in both iOS and Mac OS.

    I would like to see it on iOS as well. :wink:
