Getting Started With Password Manager



Hello. You have arrived at an outdated topic. Please click this link to be redirected to the updated Mac User Guide.

If you have the Complete or Internet Security Plus edition, you can use Password Manager with Safari, Chrome, and Firefox. Password Manager allows you to:

  • Automatically populate login credentials to access your favorite websites quickly and easily.
  • Automatically populate web forms with a personal profile, such as an address, phone numbers, and credit card numbers.
  • Generate secure passwords for all your commonly used websites.
With Password Manager, you will never need to remember multiple login names and passwords, write them down on paper, or store them in an unencrypted file on your device. Plus, Password Manager works across all your devices, including laptops, mobile phones, and tablets.





 
Note: To keep your data safe from hackers, Password Manager encrypts all your personal data on your local computer. SecureAnywhere uses the same encryption method employed by the US Government for Top Secret data. The encrypted data is meaningless to Webroot and to anyone else without the decryption key. This key is stored on your own computer and is created using your email address and master password. This personal data is never sent over the Internet
