Options - Browsers

In the program's Options (Edit Options or F10), the tab Browsers allows you to set different options regarding the standard browsers and the browser add-ons.

Internet browsers

  • Default browser: Select a browser here which you want to use by default. It will now be opened via F5 and is preset if you click Open URL/File. You can either choose a browser from the list of browsers which Password Depot has found on your system or define a custom browser by clicking on the Custom browsers... button.

Browsers add-ons

  • Auto-fill web forms using add-ons: Check this option if you want the browser add-ons to fill out web forms fully automatically. If you prefer drag & drop or the auto-completion via the lightning symbol, uncheck this option.

  • Automatically select passwords in top bar: If the program is set to the top bar mode and you manually enter an URL into the browser, the program automatically selects the corresponding password (given that there is an entry with a password for the current URL). For this function to work, the browser add-ons must be activated.

  • Add new passwords from web browsers: If you want Password Depot to suggest to add new passwords while you are surfing the Internet, check this option.

  • Warn about identical passwords for different URLs: Here, you can set Password Depot to warn you in case of identical passwords on different URLs. This will increase your security.

  • WebSockets port: Here, you can set or change the port for WebSockets of Password Depot. The default port in Password Depot 14 is 25110.

  • Protect access with a password: We recommend to activate this option if you desire enhanced or additional security for accessing Password Depot from browser extensions. As soon as you check the required box, a new dialog window will open and you will be requested to enter a new password and confirm it in the field below. Click OK in order to finish. If you want to change the password click on the button of the same name. For deactivating this option, please uncheck the corresponding box. Before finishing the process you will be requested to enter your current password once again.

NOTE: All options regarding the browser add-ons refer to the three browsers Internet Explorer, Chrome and Firefox only, as browser add-ons currently are available for these three browsers only.
