why does the app say my password is "terrible" ?

Community Member

App generated PW of 12 letters, 5 characters and 3 numbers (usually labeled as "Fantastic"....is labeled as "Terrible". I've closed and re-opened app, but same result. Love the product.....this is the first glitch. Ideas ??

    @jhoufek - I'm sorry for the trouble! Did you perhaps copy/paste this password from another application, or even from another location in 1Password? If so, that will be the reason; there's currently an issue with password strength when copied/pasted. Some of it is intentional (we no longer know how the password was generated), but it's a little overzealous. If you're clear that the password is, in fact, randomly-generated and of a length you consider sufficient, I wouldn't worry too much about an inaccurate rating from the strength meter - it doesn't affect anything, it's just a guide.
