Option to view old passwords
Provide an option to view previous used passwords for every login entry
I was unaware there was a password history in the generate password section until I read this thread. To make this more user friendly the password history should be moved to the "More info" section, especially since you may not always be generating a new password to view old password history.
The password history feature is available but lacks functionality. The current password history only records passwords generated within a day.
Normally, users tend to change passwords older than one day. However, in the current implementation, if a user changes a password older than one day, it is not recorded in the password history.
If a user changes his or her password and then is asked for the old password for confirmation, the user will not know the old password.
Also, when a user manually changes his/her password, it is not recorded in the password history.
Please implement an accurate password history feature that records the history of changed passwords, not a generated password history feature.
this exists in the current version: Go to an entry, click on edit, click on change password: At the bottom is the password history.

I had to access old passwords well over 24 hours with lastpass, which keeps ALL prior passwords a click away. Saved my bacon on more than 1 occasion!
1Password has this feature and it comes in handy when changing passwords on accounts. They frequently ask for your current password and new password.
If the website doesn't accept the new password for whatever reason, maybe it doesn't meet the arbitrary requirements, then it nulls out all password fields. If I have already overwritten my old password within ProtonPass with the new password, then I'm not able to change my password and have to go through a hassle of a password reset.
With 1Password, the historical passwords allow me to snag the old password for re-entry.
Password history is not implemented in the android app
Password history is already available, if this is what this request is about: https://twitter.com/Proton_Pass/status/1676986928892084224
This is important because both Proton Pass and password change froms aren't 100% reliable.This functionality provides a failsafe for password recovery, either when the user, by mistake, confirms Proton Pass prompt to update the password, but the form returned an error or when Proton Pass updates the wrong credential for the domain as Proton Pass still does not allow the selection of the credential when there are multiple credentials available for a domain.
For sure, this feature is very important, again on the security side. You need to know your old passwords for one account created in Proton Pass in case of a mistake.
Also a history of all created passwords
KeePass' functionality to view the complete history (all previous versions) of an entry has saved my bacon more than once! I cannot rely on a password manager that doesn't maintain previous versions.
