Browser Add-ons

You can set Password Depot to fill in web forms automatically - with your user name, password and any further log-in data. there are two methods to do this:

  1. the Auto-complete function (flash symbol in the top bar).

  2. the browser add-ons.

In the following you will find more information about the browser add-ons. For details on the Auto-complete function, please see here.

Explanation of the Browser Add-ons

Add-ons can fill in web forms automatically. Additionally, they can import new log-ins directly into Password Depot, so you don't have to create the entry manually.

Browser add-ons are launched together with the browser and come into action after you opened a website containing a log-in. Currently, the software includes add-ons for Internet Explorer, Chrome and Firefox.

If you do not want to use the browser add-ons, you can uncheck the browser add-on option in the installer, so they won't be installed. In order to disable already installed browser add-ons, use the browser's settings.

NOTE: The browser add-ons won't work while a dialog (e.g. Modify entry) is opened in Password Depot, if Password Depot is closed or locked.

Automatic Completion of Log-ins

If you open a URL that is already saved in one of your password entries and the browser add-ons are enabled, the information (user name, password and other log-in data, if available) will be inserted automatically into corresponding fields.

If the URL you have opened is saved in several password entries, the add-on will ask you to select one entry.



You never want to log-in automatically to web forms:

  1. From the Home tab select the button Options.
  2. In the window that opens select Browsers.
  3. Uncheck the checkbox Auto-fill web forms using add-ons.

You do not want to log-in automatically to particular sites:

  1. Select the password.

  2. Go to the Home tab.

  3. Select the button Modify.

  4. On the Additional tab, check the checkbox Do not autocomplete this password via the browser add-ons.

If your log-in information has changed, you can update your Password Depot entry after you typed in the new information into the log-in fields.

Automatic Import of new passwords

If you log in to a site not yet contained in Password Depot, the program will ask you to save it after you have entered your log-in data.

If you would like to disable this function, please follow these steps:

  1. Go to Home > Options.
  2. Select Browsers.
  3. Uncheck the option Add new passwords from web browsers.

NOTE: If the program suggests adding a new entry although there already is an according entry in your database, it is most likely that the URL does not match with the saved one. In this case, add a corresponding URL mask to the respective password entry.
