Capturing Login Credentials



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 You have arrived at an outdated topic.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

When you are logged in to your Webroot account from the browser toolbar, the Password Manager automatically detects any information you enter into login fields and prompts you to capture the credentials. Later, when you open that website again, the Password Manager can populate the login fields or log you in automatically.

Two methods are available for capturing login credentials:

To capture login credentials while in a website

  1. Make sure you are logged in to your Webroot account. For more information, see Using the Password Manager Toolbar.
  2. Open a website that requires login credentials, such as a banking site or social media site.
  3. Log in to the website with your user name and password.
    The Password Manager detects the user name, password, and URL.
  4. Look for the Password Manager prompt at the top of the browser, and click the Save Site button.



    The Add Webroot Site window displays with the URL, user name, and password already saved.



  5. If needed, you can change the name, which appears on your Sites list, add notes, select a group, and select other options.
     
    FIELD NAMEDESCRIPTION
    URL This is the web address. Do not change the URL.
    Name SecureAnywhere automatically fills in a site profile name, which appears on your list of profiles. If needed, you can change it to something simple, such as My Credit Union.
    Group You can define a name for a group or select one from the list, if you already defined groups. By defining a group, you can organize sites by categories, such as Banking and Shopping. If you do not enter a group, the site is categorized in a default group.
    Username This is the user name that you entered in the site. You can change it, if needed. 
    Password This is the password you entered in the site. You can change it, if needed.
    Notes Optionally, you can enter any notes that apply to this website, such as a PIN number for a credit card.
    Favorite If you access this site frequently, you can select this checkbox to save this site to your Favorites list. You can quickly access your Favorites from the Groups icon.
    Require Password Prompt To protect a particular site, secure note, or Form Fill profile so that any access using the information stored in the Password Manager requires your Webroot master password, select this checkbox. This setting provides additional control of individual sites, such as a bank login, where you want additional security.
    Never AutoFill Select this checkbox if you do not want your user name and password displayed in the login fields when you access the site. This is an extra security step, which hides your login credentials from view.

    Enabling this option does not automatically log you in when you manually navigate to the site. The login fields show the Webroot icon to indicate that the site is saved with Webroot, but you must click the site's sign-in button to log in.
    AutoLogin To bypass the login fields and access the website automatically, select this checkbox.
  6. When you're done, click the Save button.
    The system stores the information in a profile. The next time you access this website, make sure you are signed in to your Webroot account so the Password Manager can automatically fill in your login credentials. For more information, see Logging in to saved sites.
