Update LastPass font to better distinguish between characters (such as O and 0)

On the chrome browser vault pages, and probably elsewhere too, the font used for passwords does not distinguish between capital O and zero.  They look identical.  This is on the "Edit Password" dialog box at least.

 

Sometimes I need to type the password into another device, so I cannot just cut and paste it. Hence, the characters all need to be unique and easy to read.

 

btw, if copy/paste the password from the "site password" box into the Notes box it becomes readable, as the latter uses a different font that has a wider character for the capital O.

This exact problem just locked me out of a financial website. This font issue exists on both Windows 10 and Linux. The problem I had was that a capital "i" looks identical to a lower case "L" in the font used. Because the website made me type my password in, I thought the l in the password was an l.

yes, PLEASE fix this. This should be a basic thing for password management systems - distinguish between I (capital i) and l (lower L), O and 0 (capital o and zero), etc. The mobile app at least colors numbers, which helps, but using a font that makes them clearly distinct should be a pretty obvious must-have design feature.

What yaytech said. Yes, this is a very basic and very important issue--much more important than some of the bells and whistles that have been added to the app.
