Hide Vulnerable Passwords warning for specific items
How do I disable the various vulnerable password, re-used password and weak password banners and other warnings for specific items without disabling the entire feature?
We can do this with the
2FA tag which is an "okay" implementation, although it would be nicer if I could hide the 2FA tag from the list just to remove clutter, but it isn't a big deal.
The problem is that when you pre-load the list with a bunch of useless items, the items that genuinely require attention are lost to the mess. I'd rather use the list as more of a todo list, when I have spare time go through the sites and either update the password, close the account, or tag it as unfixable.
The most obvious example is passwords I can't control which will trigger vulnerable, reused and weak passwords all over the place. I doubt I'm unique here.
- Wi-fi passwords. Not my wi-fi so even if I can get into the configuration, it would be rude to change it.
- Public wi-fi passwords printed on 700pt banners on the wall in every direction need to be easy to type.
- My mom's iPhone PIN.
- The office timecard system, which requires passwords be numeric 4-6 digits for compatibility with the hardware unit, but also has a web interface.
- I have two insurance companies that assign me a password, guess how strong it is?
- Anything that uses a numeric PIN followed by a hardware key is secure enough with anything stronger than 1234.
- I have a list of every single password at Tangerine Bank (in Canada), as they only allow 6 numeric digits. Believe me, if I could use a secure password, I would.
Reused passwords. I have a lot of these.
The big one is systems that use centralized passwords but differing username formats (e.g. Active Directory). At $DAYJOB we have a combination of
my-full-10-digit-phone-number which is annoying in the best of times, but having a bunch of entries in 1Password is less annoying than manually editing the username every time.
- One frequent-purchaser program requires the full card number on the web login page, but only the suffix for the app. Helpfully they have unique URIs so this works with 1Password nicely, it just triggers a false alarm.
An obvious solution to re-used passwords would be to suppress the warning for linked items, or even better have some syntax that tells 1Password to use the password of the linked item for this item too rather than storing the passwords individually.
For weak/vulnerable passwords a
Weak tag would probably be a good fit, a tag makes sense here because you might want to periodically review these to see if any can be fixed as vendors fix their weak systems.
