Hello, Can you add a field in the password generator to type in certain special characters that should be excluded from the generated password? There are many websites (mostly banks) which put some restriction on the set of special characters that can be used in the password, so it'll be nice if the generator can handle this. Please try to implement this in the next release. Thanks, Asmit
Hi everyone, on Enpass 5.5.6 (Linux) I noticed that the password generator uses exactly the configured number of characters per type (i.e. digits, uppers, symbols) and I found no way to specify an "At least #" logic. For example, using the default configuration the 18-chars password always has 3 digits, 5 uppers, 5 symbols (and 5 lowers, even if not stated), whereas I want it to have a minimum of 1 character per type, as required by most password policies out there. I would even deem this default configuration a security bug because by greatly reducing the cardinality of the password space you gives an obstinate cracker a sensible advantage. Is there a way to enable the "At least #" logic? May we expect a more robust password generator in the upcoming release?
1. Put check boxes in front of digits, symbols and uppercase to quickly enable/disable. 2. Make the categories into ranges to allow for more varied password generation. Not sure how much entropy this would actually add, perhaps it is a perception issue that static numbers for the different categories is bad. 3. Perhaps under options have the possibility to edit which special characters should be valid for use (with a reset to default button). For 1 and 2 see my excellent paint skills here, the green scribbles are supposed to be checkboxes :-)
I'd love to see an option for diceware passphrases in the password generator. A password like crazy-horse-battery is pretty secure and far easier to remember/type then kis-efum-aya-hava-ivid. Now I know you'll say we don't need to remember passwords since Enpass can type them for you, but there are situations when I can't use Enpass to type the password, such as the Enpass Vault, servers, computer logins etc.
