I have meticulously read through discussion 98376/Pin Security (now closed), along with a couple others posts is all I could find, but I still am having trouble understanding what is being said. Most recent posts were back in 2018 and before.
Has anything changed since then?
I am out-of-trial and happily have an 1Password Account. But I am not, yet, using 1Password.
Backing up for a minute, I understand that iOS is a walled garden [ I'm guessing Android phones use a simple 1Password PIN (QUC) solution ]. AgileBits has masterfully leveraged Apple's iOS Keychain so as to offer PIN code for iOS 1Password users who do not wish to key strong Master password each time they open the app. My household will not use 1Password unless/until I create a PIN code.
I do not wish to delve further into iOS PIN security details.
OTOH, what I would kindly prefer (if reasonable and sensible, of course)
Can anyone of the AG Team confirm, maybe something like this:
"Yes, I know of one or more Team members that use iOS PIN codes on their personal 1Password accounts".
At this point, if 1Password Team member(s) are knowledgeably and confidently using iOS Keychain PIN code, I will choose to trust that it is (completely? sufficiently?) safe to use and move on.
