That's one of the disadvantages of masterpasswordapp, as far as I can
see: If you have to change one password, whether because the site owner
says so or it's genuinely been compromised, then masterpasswordapp won't
let you do that, right? Based on your name, the sitename, and your
master password, there is only one true password. So to change a
password, you'd have to change one of those factors. You probably can't
change the site name, changing your own name is inconvenient, and
changing the master password changes all your other passwords as well.
