A new version of Google Chrome extension was released that enables creation of new and update of existing identities. You can now pick your favorite identity right from extension itself and “pin” one of multiple identities to a particular web site on a given computer. As you change your identity password, it is automatically saved to the server so you never lose it.
Going a bit more technical, we’ve done a few more things:
- Improved conflict resolution algorithm – when the same identity or property is changed on different computers, extension and web site do a bit more sleuthing to retain the right information and prevent accidental data loss.
- Improved password generator – default generator profile was changed to avoid ambiguous and hard-to-read characters without sacrificing password strength.
- Improved form capture – we support password capture on more types of forms than before. Web site developers are always at work building better experiences, which sometimes leads to a non-standard form UX.
- Improved form field detection algorithm – for web sites we do not explicitly support, we’ve added generic field recognition logic that tries to figure out which fields are supposed to have which values. It also establishes association between web sites we don’t recognize and identities inside My ID HUB using “Web site address” property for safety.
We hope you find these changes useful.
