Alert for Weak Password switches to Reused Password when ignored

Community Member

I have an Login item that has a Weak Password alert (the password really is weak because
it was assigned and I cannot change it). Since I cannot fix this, I ignored the alert. But when
I look at that item in Watchtower under Ignored Alerts, the alert is now for Reused Password.
Is this a bug or is there something else going on here? I am fairly certain no other items use
that same password and It did not show up under Reused Passwords in Watchtower before I
ignored the alert.

    Hi @Dave47,

    Thanks for reaching out!

    If you you restart 1Password and click to view the Watchtower, then select the Reused passwords tile, are you still not seeing the item listed?

    I look forward to hearing from you!

    No. I restarted 1Password and clicked on Watchtower. Reused Passwords is empty. And that makes
    sense, because I am certain the random weak password I chose is not reused (i.e., no other items
    use that same password). But the Weak Password alert I ignored shows up as a Reused Password
    alert in the Ignored Alerts. This is easily reproducible.

    Hi @Dave47, thanks for this additional information! It seems you're running into a known bug at the moment, where Watchtower incorrectly displays a reused password banner in the Ignored Alerts section for an item with a weak password.

    I'm not yet able to provide a timeline for a fix for this issue, however if you would like, you can keep an eye on our release notes page for news on any bug fixes: 1Password Releases

    If you have any further questions or concerns, let us know.
