Hidden password revealed by "alt gr" when typing email adress "@"

edited September 14 in Windows

Happens when editing an entry in my vault: when I type an@ using my French keyboard combination alt gr + 0, the hidden password is instantly turned visible, for everyone looking at my computer to see it. That's pretty inconvenient and insecure, especially because most of the login entries rely on an email adress as username.
I've found nowhere in the application a way to change this behavior. A very strange behavior as the application indicates that the revealing password shorcut is ctrl + R.

    Hi @Flomyen:

    Thank you for the feedback. I was able to replicate this issue on 1Password 7. I've flagged it for internal feedback.

    What I can tell you is that I was not able to replicate it in the 1Password 8 Early Access.
