Creating secure passwords for you is one of the most important things that we do here at AgileBits. We’re constantly looking for ways to improve 1Password to make it more secure and more convenient.
Today, we believe we’ve come up with an innovative solution that will allow users to create secure passwords … even in the face of unreasonably low character limits.
Security, in eight characters.
Too many websites today still restrict passwords to 8 or 10 characters, when we all know that 8-10 alphanumeric characters just isn’t going to cut it with today’s password cracking technology.
The next update to 1Password will include a brand new addition to our Strong Password Generator that introduces a whole new method of creating secure passwords: a random character generator.
Passwords: Now with random-er characters!
Our new character generator gives you security with only a few characters.
Because attackers do not have facial recognition built into their algorithms, these passwords will thwart even the craftiest crackers.
We’re introducing this feature first on 1Password for Mac, with a limited character set, and we’d love for your help in making this tool even more secure-ier! Check out our list of available characters and let us know which ones you’d like to see added next. We’re taking votes and will add characters based on the highest popularity.
