When selecting the password "reveal" function, below the revealed password text I'd like to see the password length (number of characters), the count of letters and a count of both uppercase and lowercase, the count of numbers, the count of special characters with a list of them. Most often the reason to reveal the password is because the website is complaining that the password does not comply with its particular rules and I'm trying to figure out why.

    @swilson: It sounds like the new Large Type feature might interest you:

    It's currently in beta, but hopefully it will be available to everyone Soon™. Does something like that help? :)

    Yes, anything to make type temporarily larger helps. But my suggestion still stands. Websites often allow no special characters, or only some of them and not others. They have rules about letters and numbers and capitals and overall password maximum / minimum length. While my suggestion isn't the most important on your list, I'm sure, it's one of those things that would make life a little easier, and reveal the developers to be a little more thoughtful of the needs of their users. I'd not think it too hard to do, and you have room to display the information. But I can continue to count characters and so on as I have been. It's only a suggestion, and it isn't something I need ten times a day.

    @swilson: Indeed! It's certainly something we can consider adding in the future. I was just excited to let you know about something that you can actually take advantage of now (in the beta version). Thanks again for the feedback! :chuffed:
