Codebook for macOS 3.6.0 Released - Adds Pwned Passwords API Lookup


This version of Codebook for macOS (3.6.0) adds a feature called Password Review that when enabled automatically checks the password you’re editing against the Pwned Passwords API, a new resource of over half a billion passwords hacked from various online services. We’ve got an article here describing how the feature works along with a demonstration video.

Changes in this version:

  • Adds the new Password Review feature (preference disabled by default)
  • Adopts a new custom display for the autocomplete suggestions shown while editing fields
  • Fixes the early dismissal of the autocomplete suggestions by word boundaries (e.g. “https://“)
  • Improves layout and appearance consistency of Password Warnings and Secret Agent Action suggestions
  • Fixes a regression where clicking the Dock icon did not show the Main Window
  • Fixes the account name label displayed under the Sync menu after Google Drive authorization
  • The icon selector has been updated to fix errant highlights when using the scroll wheel
  • The icon selector now loads a heckuva lot faster and has a new layout
  • Fixes crash possible when arrowing down the Views list to Categories
