Password strength - display and sort

Please add the following two features to 1Password for Linux (and other clients if possible):
1) Show password strength when viewing an entry
2) Sort by password strength

This would be very useful for finding which passwords need changing because they're not strong enough.

Thanks.


1Password Version: 8.0.34
Extension Version: 2.0.4
OS Version: Ubuntu 20.04
Sync Type: Not Provided

    Hey there @jktrigg, thanks so much for posting!

    Show password strength when viewing an entry

    You can view the strength of an entry's password on the right-hand side of the password field - for example, here's the password strength of one of my test items:

    Sort by password strength

    The Watchtower view allows you to look at entries based on their strength classification, and change the weakest passwords first - to do so, click the Watchtower section in the left-hand column of the app, then click Show Items for the category you'd like to work on to see all items under that category.

    Let me know what you think! :smile:

  • The Watchtower only allows you to work with weak passwords, not any of the stronger categories. I want to be able to go through my fair passwords.

    Ah! I can totally see how being able to filter down the various password-strength categories outside of the "weak" passwords would be handy!

    I've filed this as a feature request with our development team. Thanks a ton for your feedback!

    Thanks! Searching for just this solution. Scrolling through hundreds of passwords and checking their quality makes my eyes bug out.

    We appreciate that, @RustyIron - and hope future updates to Watchtower will be to your liking. Thanks for letting us know!

  • definite +1 for this feature - I've already fixed all (*) of my "weak" passwords, but I'd like to easily find the "fair" and "good" ones as well.

    The (*) is because some of them are not within my control, and I'd really like to be able to tell watchtower to ignore them. Some specific examples: accounts with weak constraints (4-digit PIN), orgs that have a "members area" where they just circulate a short password to access it.
