Master password length limit?

Postby jb1 » Thu Jun 10, 2010 8:22 pm

What's the longest our master password can be? I seem to recall something about 65 characters, but can't find anything in the user manual.

Thanks.

It's only limited by the length of the password field everywhere (which is generally 255 but there might be some shorter out there -- we're happy to fix it if you find any).

There's no real point beyond 32 characters as 256-AES, and your key is made from a 256-bit hash (32 8-bit characters).
