|Webroot:||This solution addresses Webroot SecureAnywhere for Mac OS X 10.7 and higher|
If you have the Complete or Internet Security Plus edition, you can use the Password Manager with Safari, Chrome, and Firefox. The Password Manager allows you to:
- Automatically fill in login credentials to access your favorite websites quickly and easily.
Automatically fill in 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 the 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, the Password Manager works across all your devices, including laptops, mobile phones, and tablets.
Important note about the security of your Password Manager data: To keep your data safe from hackers, the 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.
To get started with Password Management:
- Open SecureAnywhere on your Mac and make sure the Password Management component is configured. To check configuration:
Open the SecureAnywhere interface (click the Webroot icon in the menu bar, then select Open Webroot SecureAnywhere from the drop-down menu).
From the main window, click Password Manager.
- If the Password Management toolbar is not yet installed or not visible, click the Activate Password Manager or Reactivate Password Manager button.
As SecureAnywhere installs the toolbar to your browser, the following message appears.
- Once the installer has been downloaded, you will be asked to complete the extension install. Please click Install.
- Open your browser and make sure you see the Webroot icon in the toolbar. The icon is grayed out until you click it and log in with your Webroot account credentials. The examples below show how the icons appear for Safari or Chrome, and Firefox. (You can also hover your mouse over the icons for pop-up descriptions.)
Safari and Chrome:
- If you have not yet created an account in the SecureAnywhere website, follow the instructions in Creating a Webroot account.
- Access your Webroot account at my.webrootanywhere.com. Log in with your credentials. If the Passwords panel displays a Set Up Account Now button, click that button to enable Passwords.
When the Passwords component is configured, the Set Up Account Now button changes to Go to Passwords. (This may take about 15 minutes.)
- Click Go to Passwords to access the Password Manager.
The Passwords panel opens, similar to the example below.
