Default password generation options

Given that Bitwarden is designed to semi-automate the use of passwords, may I suggest the “Avoid ambiguous characters” in the password generator be DISABLED by default? At the moment it’s enabled. This means that if someone knows you use Bitwarden, they’ll know you probably are NOT using certain characters, reducing entropy and therefore password strength.

Agreed. The loss of entropy from a few characters isn’t going to be hugely significant, but since Bitwarden fills in passwords for us anyway (or allows copy and paste) there is no real point in avoiding ambiguous characters.

I do agree. I would also love it when the last setting would be remembered.
