Entry Type: Password

To create a password entry, click on Password (Ctrl + Insert) in the toolbar. The new password will be saved in the currently open folder (displayed in the left Navigation area). Alternatively, use the tab Edit → New → Password.

In the General tab, you can make the following entries (all entries except the description are optional):

  • Description: Enter a description for the new password. The description also serves as the name displayed in the Passwords area.
  • Change Icon (Icon to the right of Description): To change the icon for the password, click Change Icon to the right of the description.
    If you click directly on the icon with the left mouse button, the Select Icon window will open. If you click on the icon with the right mouse button, you have the choice between three options: Select Icon (takes you to the Select Icon window), Load from URL (use the default icon (favicon.ico) of an entered URL), and Default Icon (uses the default icon for passwords or resets the icon to this).
  • User: Enter the username associated with this password.
  • Password: Enter the password here.
  • Show/Hide Password (Eye icon): Changes whether the password is displayed in plain text or hidden (and displayed as dots).
  • Password Generator (Cogwheel icon next to the input field): Calls up the Password Generator. After a password has been generated, it will be automatically entered in the Password field.
  • Quality: Indicates how secure your password is. You also receive an assessment of the quality of your password and information about whether it is contained in whole or in part in a dictionary.
  • Category: Categories help you structure your passwords.
  • Importance: Define the importance of your password using the Importance dropdown menu. Based on the selected option (High/Medium/Low), you can later identify which passwords are particularly important.
  • Valid until: If you want to specify a validity date for your password, activate the Valid until option with a checkmark and type in a validity date or select it using the Calendar function (to the right of the input field); or select a time period via the Insert expiration date button ("Expand" to the right of it), e.g., three months or five days. If your password does not yet have a validity date, you can still set a date to be reminded to change it at a specific date (which also activates the checkmark on the left). Please note the Tip for secure passwords to change passwords regularly.
  • Tags: Here you can assign tags for better filtering of entries.
  • Notes: Optionally enter additional information here.

For this entry type, you also have the following tabs available:

Click OK to save changes or Cancel to close the window without saving changes.

NOTE: In this dialog box, you have the option to use the virtual keyboard. It is located at the bottom left of the dialog box.

HINT: For additional flexibility in password management, you can also create a 'Linked Entry' that inherits the username and password from this entry. For more details, refer to the Linked Entry section.
