Morning dev team.
Today 1Password asked me to enter the "Master password" to log in.
Surprising ! Especially when you need to retrieve immediately a password for a particular access, and you count on your expensive 1password application to provide you the result in few seconds, but suddenly today, 1Password asks for the Master password [ the same application that you open every day using its traditional password ].
I never use the Master password, it was created a long time ago when I started with 1Password. And I never use the website 1Password, hence, I never use the secret key. Because it is not obvious to remember where you stored the Master password nor what the secret key is, then you get stuck when you expect to log in immediately to your application.
Also before you realise that the 1Password app is asking you to enter the "Master password", you try a couple of times your initial password that you type 10 times a day. Then, you realise that the app is asking for the special "Master password".. Oopps, that is it? As a result you try immediately the 1password app from your smartphone, thinking you are safe, but you face the same request asking you to enter the Master password to open 1password app in your smartphone. You can't believe this happens without any reason, and why today when you need your expensive 1Password app to give you the password you are looking for.
I can tell you your panic level climbed to its maximum level in few seconds.
Long story short, finally it took me a while but I retrieved the Master password, fortunately I sent to myself a email a long time ago to store it in my keeper drawer. Think of the security!
This is very bad! Why 1Password today asked me to enter The "Master Password"?
I'm using the same Mac as every day, I didn't ran any software upgrade, all is the same as last week, same as last month.
Please don't tell me it's yet for additional security reasons, because every security expert will tell you the more you are injected security checks, the more problems we (end-users) run into.
Thank you, yves
