View Password - Password not in cleartext

  • Create an Issue
  • Cancel

Hello,
the View Password Option from the menu shows the Username, Domain and the Password for the respective entry. I think it would be better that at least the password are masked and a additional button - maybe left from the existig copy button for show the password in cleartext...
or
a additional option from the menu to copy username / copy password to the clipboard - so the option View Password must not be used for password copy.
...other opinions are welcome wink

Hi,
We could add an option for that because I know that this was a request to avoid two operations. We could set the option to hide the password (for security reason) by default. What do you think?

Hi David,
for my opinion the View Password Option should be masked by default (like the View --> Login) - the eye icon from there should be add to the View Password Dialog - left from the copy icon - so the copy icons all on the right side and only for the password the additional eye icon appears.
Attached a image how it might look.

Nicolas will be able to answer this Monday but if it's not the next, it will be soon. We release a new version each month and I'm not sure if the team will be able to include it for the next one.

Hello Nicolas,

with Version 1.5 it works perfect - Thank you!

Just for info - would it be possible that the copied password after a specified time are overwritten with a "dummy" or a empty string? (like in the windows program) wink

Thank you!

Hi Min,

Thank you for your feedback. We will add your request to our todo list.
However, please note that Android is not very secure with the clipboard.
Some special applications can be installed that log everything that is copied to the clipboard.
Even if overwrite what is copied, the first value that was copied will still appear in the special application logs.

Best Regards,

Nicolas Dufour
