Hi Maarten,

Thanks for this tool and your other contributions e.g. BASH IRC; big respect!

Oon change of phone and change of version I am getting different passwords out. This is pretty scary as I use MasterPassword for everything everywhere (I'm a believer)

Original install on Motorola Moto G 4G; version 2.4-java (with the reassuring 'Integrity Tests' feature); sourced some years back.
Running android 5.1
New install on Pixel 3a; version 2.7.1; sourced today from
Running Android 9

Neither phone will allow me to take a screenshot to confirm this; I guess this is a MasterPassword restriction?

Checking manually that the entries are the same on motorola, pixel...
Type Long, Type long
Counter 1,Counter 1
Algorithm V0,Algorithm V0

Look forward to hearing how to deal with this. I've been proselytising about how great this app is for years.
Best regards

    You're saying the Lanu8_GukeWamq result is obtained on the Pixel 3a (Android 9) running version 2.7.1?
