DotPass 1.5.5 update

An update to the password app DotPass (iOS and macOS) has now been released on the app store.

It's been a while since the last update, and this update contains some general maintenance along with a requested feature to allow using the generated DotPass password without special characters (like *&%! etc). You generate the password just like you usually do, but there's now a way to copy it with any special characters replaced with letters. This will usually not be needed, but if you run into a site that for some reason doesn't allow a special character that is in the password generated by DotPass this will give you a secondary way to still use DotPass for the password without needing to change your seed word or pattern.

If you're looks for a way to ensure all your accounts have good unique passwords, while still not having to remember them all, check it out!
