A Brief Message on Password Security

…and a feature request.

In this spirit of this epic cartoon from XKCD comes this. Randall pointed out even the password you think is super-secure that you use for your bank is pretty easy for computers to crack and gives some advice on what you should be doing instead. Make Me a Password is an implementation of that idea in the form of a single-serving website.

In other words: instead of using a password like, “Pa$sW0rD!”, use something like “Underinsured Cauldrons” and you’ll be safer. About five hundred thousand billion billion times safer. No, really.

So when can something like this be added to 1Password’s strong password generator?
