Is there a list of characters that is not used when the avoid ambiguous characters option is enabled?
a-z Ambiguous: l A-Z Ambiguous: IO 0-9 Ambiguous: 01
Sorry I’m a bit late to the party. I was wondering in which case anyone would actually use “avoid ambiguous characters”, I mean the passwords generated by Bitwarden are not meant to be remembered anyway nor to be typed by hand (most of the time you copy/paste the password).
Could somebody explain?
I’ve found there are some instances where passwords cannot be pasted. The two that come to mind are (1) systems I don’t own, and (2) limited-functionality environments (such as the Windows installer, or text-only systems like Linux’s tty1, tty2, …, tty6).
I can also imagine a use for non-Internet-connected systems, and for passwords someone might need to write down, such as a wifi password or an e-transfer password.
(I’m not a Bitwarden user, so if any of this doesn’t apply, I apologize.)
Perhaps this description applies…
It basically says avoid mixing ‘0’ zero with ‘O’ capital O, or I with i,l, ot L etc…
Do you get the picture? If so please upvote +1 my answer.
