Suggestion: Generate logins on the fly

Just now I created a new account for this forum. I immediately ran into a few usability issues that I would like to see fixed.

First of all there was no way to generate a new password on the fly. I had to go into the app and add a login. Even in that screen there was no way to generate a password. I had to generate the password, copy it, and then add the login. I'm used to 1Password that this is one step.

Once I did get in, it wanted to save over my existing McAfee login. Since this is a different site, I didn't could not let that happen.

This was all too tedious and it feels like the system is getting in my way instead of improving my life. There should be a way to generate new logins on the fly. There should also be a way to choose a login instead of being forced into a select few the app thinks are a match.

Re: Suggestion: Generate logins on the fly

Good morning,

It is accurate that you cannot generate a new password for a login that has not been saved first, only way is to create a login and save it and then you can change the password by generating a new password and changing it with your old password.

There is no way to link a newly generated password to a login that has not been saved already.
