I have some sites that have custom password requirements, say, where only “certain” special characters are allowed (others fail the new password) and where you can’t have the same character sequentially repeated. Sadly though, I still have to deal with these sites several times per year to change my already-strong password (more silliness!).
Therefore, now that I’m considering using bitwarden, I wanted to ask if it could create custom passwords (using custom recipe) – per login.
For example, one site I have to deal with has these (silly, IMHO) requirements.
Passwords must be 12 to 30 characters in length and comply with the following:
• Must contain at least one uppercase letter (A, B, C, etc.) • Must contain at least one lowercase letter (a, b, c, etc.) • Must contain at least one number (1, 2, 3, etc.) • Must contain at least one of the following characters (!, @, #, $, *, +, -) • Must not contain double characters (no two consecutive characters can be the same) • Must not be the same as any of the five previous passwords used
Can bitwarden (or any password manager) handle these requirements? These forced password requirements are only for a single login, not my requirement for default logins. I have no idea why these sites have such silly password requirements, but using any password manager I have tried thus far means the generated password will FAIL and I spend five or ten minutes tweaking the password so the site will accept it.
There are other sites that have similarly silly restrictions, but they are different than the above, so I would want to save a special password recipe for that login. And, again, these recipe would be for that login and not the default.
KeyPassXC comes close but it won’t store a custom password recipe by login and it has no provision that I found to keep having sequential repeated characters.
Thanks in advance!
