Compromised numerical passwords


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

recently enpass started to instantly flag any and all 6-digit (or less) numerical PINs I set up as compromised. I tried to save 10 completely random number combinations in a row, and all of them are marked as compromised right away once I save them.

Any idea what could be wrong?

Thanks for any hints!

Solved, I think (correct me if I’m wrong). Leaving it up for people with a similar issue.

For some reason, if you forget to switch the pre-selected category of "password" in the according drop-down to "PIN", a short numerical PIN is instantly flagged as compromised. Switching to "PIN" category removed the warning.

A bit confusing, as the displayed warning does not indicate this scenario as part of the security check or potential cause for the warning, but rather only points to "online exposed passwords".
