Accessing Password Manager Functions



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 You have arrived at an outdated topic.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

You can access Password Manager functions from your browser’s toolbar. When you are signed in to your Webroot account from the toolbar, SecureAnywhere can automatically fill in your login credentials for sites that require a user name and password. The toolbar also allows you to access favorite sites, auto-fill data into web forms, and other tasks.

 To access Password Manager functions in your browser's toolbar:

  1. Open Safari, Chrome, or Firefox.
  2. Log in to your SecureAnywhere account by clicking the Webroot icon in your browser’s toolbar. When you click the grayed-out icon, a window displays where you can enter your user name, which is typically your email address and password for your Webroot account. If the icon is not grayed out, you are already logged in. The following examples show how the dialog displays for Safari/Chrome and for Firefox.

    Safari/Chrome


    Firefox


  3. Once you are logged in, click on the icon again to display the Passwords window.
    Depending on which browser you are using, the window will look slightly different between Safari/Chrome and Firefox.

  4. From this dialog, you can log in to saved sites, populate forms with personal data, generate secure passwords, and set preferences. The following tables describe the main functions of the Passwords dialog for Safari or Chrome, and for Firefox.
