Sparx Blocks Password Manager = Bad Bad Not Good
« on: October 21, 2021, 10:15:08 am »


Like many security-conscious humans these days, I use a password manager (1Password). All my passwords are now complex, and I don't use the same password on multiple websites. This is how life should be.

But when I need to authenticate to Sparx, I often encounter a dialogue that does not allow me to user my Password Manager app.

This is not a 'contemporary user experience', as they say in Holloywood. It's a nuisance factor.

Sparxians. Listen up here. Lift your game, please.

PS: Version 16 beta is looking good. You are nice people and your work is important to the world.

Thank you.

Hi Thelonius,

My password manager (Roboform) has no problem with these authentication dialogs.

HTH,
Paolo

My LastPass doesnt recognise it either. A consistent annoyance...

Can't see anything special sent that would indicate it's intentional. Just looks like a standard 401 error.

Yes it really is a constant consistent annoyance.
