I have a situation. I recently purchased 1Password and have been using it on Mozilla and windows. I went to change my master password and used the 1Password generator set to random password with letters/numbers/symbols at 100 char length. I then wrote it down and copied it to a txt file. My 1Password was set to require a password after 5 or so minutes of inactivity. Upon putting in my new master password I am prompted that it may be a typo. I can’t login now. I have tried entering the older master password to no luck. Usually, I would also save passwords to Mozilla whilst I’m in the process of changing them all, and then eventually delete them so 1Password is the only place they are kept. It seems the 1Password extension has scrubbed my Mozilla, or at least made the saved passwords inaccessible.
I have my emergency pdf, email, every master password (there were only 2). I’m completely stuck on what to do.
The 1Password guides have gotten me nowhere. Is this an issue with using 100char passwords? Does 1Password have a char limit e.g 65char so my master password will just be the first 65chars of what I thought was my master password?
I would appreciate any help. This is very distressing. I feel like I took every precaution, although one could argue a 100char master isn’t the smartest idea.
I made a lot of changes to passwords and some of my 2FA is through 1Password. I’m very concerned if I’ll ever be able to access some of these accounts again now, as there are no saved passwords in any of my browsers anymore (locked behind 1Password extension).
