Adjust "URL component" options
« on: December 16, 2016, 03:54:44 AM »
I'd like to suggest that PasswordMaker adds a "Domain extension" field to the Profile options list.

That way passwords could be generated using just the website name: "mywebsite" rather than "mywebsite.com" without having to manually edit the URL field.

I currently use that for a number of sites due to web address changes as well as for non-online passwords. This feature would mean I could make them all passwords consistent and automatic.

It'd be great to hear if anyone else agrees or any other thoughts.

- Thanks.

This is a security issue actually.

Let's say mysite.com is the site you want to log into. Now, someone wants to steal login details and get the domain mysite.net or mysite.cc

Using your suggestion, they can steal your password. I don't think there are enough valid sites to make this a worth while option actually.
