iOS 2.9.2 Bugs

Just updated to 2.9.2 and I found some bugs:

1. I want to reset password (change master password). Both buttons on warning dialog box say “Abort”.

2. Clicking one of them allow me to continue changing master password, but it prompts me for old master password to migrate some passwords. I forgot my old master password so I choose not to migrate, but Don’t Migrate button gives no response. (my iphone is 5s).

3. The width of rectangle box that holds created password is too wide for my phone that first character of site name is not shown.

4. On bigger phone in portrait orientation, the first rectangle box is not shown. Change orientation to landscape and change it to portrait again fix it. But the next time Master Password start, it happens again.

5. I have the same issue with this bug: Please fix this.

6. When is the next major update rolling out? Will it introduce new algorithm? Can I still use v3 with it?

    1. That's confusing! Thanks! Resolved.
    2. This shows up for stored passwords, since they're encrypted with your old master password. When you change the master password, you need the old one to access it and update its encrypted to use the new master password. If you skip migration, the password will be unavailable. You can either replace it with a new passwords or you can change your master password back to the old one to regain access to the original saved password.
    3. These screen sizes are no longer supported, I can look into what's possible, but no promises - I can't risk issues on current devices.
    4. Thanks! This issue has been resolved for the upcoming update.

    6. I can't share any concrete details or timeline yet, but new capabilities are absolutely on the horizon. Your current passwords aren't going to change on you. If an improved algorithm comes out, password migration will be entirely optional and on your terms. Furthermore, Master Password supports all older algorithm versions to ensure backwards compatibility.

    1. Thank you.

    2. The problem is : “Don‘t Migrate“ button does not respond to my tap / click. I can not enter my old master password because I forget what it is. Entering random text or empy text brings the prompt back. So, I am stuck in this infinite loop, I have to force close Master Password.

    3. Thank you, please don’t drop support for 5s.

    4. Thank you.

    5. Thank you.

    6. Thank you, I assume there is upgrade/downgrade button to change version.

    By the way, I have a couple of more questions :

    7. What is the maximum number of passwords Master Password can hold? What is the limit per user?

    8. I see that in Firefox extension, generated username changes when counter number increase/decrease. Will you consider this behaviour for iOS app?

    2. Oh - that *is* a problem. I'll investigate.

    3. I believe I might've found a sustainable solution.

    6. Indeed. Once a new algorithm becomes available, there will be an upgrade button for your sites. If you want to downgrade, you'll have to go into Settings first to enable the functionality and then you can tap-and-hold the upgrade button to downgrade a site.

    7. There isn't any hard limit at this time.

    8. That would cause issues for people who have an existing account with a site and an existing username in that account, but need to update their password to a new one.

    One more thing. Master Password keep nagging me to leave feedback, even after I click all the choices. Please make it less intrusive.

    I'd like to add – I haven't been able to find an issue with the "Don't Migrate" repeating endlessly, though perhaps it's iterating over different sites? Any idea if the pop-up message mentions a different site name for each time it pops up?

    The pop up message mention the same site name each time it pops up.

    I think it is a device specific issue, thats why I mention my phone model in describing it.
    I can not reproduce the issue in iphone XR. I haven’t tried it on other model.
