Automatically save passwords

Attention. To protect your data, use passwords that are complex but easy to remember on all websites.

The browser remembers entered passwords by default. If you don't want to save a password for a specific website, disable the Save password in browser option that pops up above the virtual keyboard when you enter your password.

If you previously created a a master password, you must enter it when saving a password from a website. A master password is used in the encryption algorithm and ensures a higher protection level, since it is stored only in your memory.

Password generator

We recommend using automatically generated passwords that are difficult to hack. These passwords are also difficult to remember, but you don't need to remember them. The password manager will insert them in forms automatically (but you can view them if you want). To protect passwords in storage, use a master password.

To generate a password for a site:

  1. Place the cursor in the password field.
  2. Tap the generated password above the virtual keyboard.
Note. The password generator opens automatically if the browser has recognized a form for registering or changing your password.

The generated password will be saved in the password manager

Automatic password retrieval

Enter your username. When you enter a username, your usernames for signing into this website appear above the virtual keyboard. Choose one of them, and then this username and password will be entered in the fields of the login form.

If you have already created a master password, you must enter it after selecting or entering a username. This enables the browser to decrypt the password from the website and enter it into the form.

Switch usernames

To log in to a website using a different name, put the cursor in the field where you enter your username. The browser will display a list of usernames you have used for various websites above the virtual keyboard. Select one of them.
