Master password

A master password provides an additional level of security for your passwords. After you create a master password, the app will request it during an attempt to open password storage or enter a previously saved website password in a login form.

Instead of a huge number of passwords from websites, you will only have to remember one master password. Passwords from websites will also be more secure. Access to the vault is locked by the master password, which cannot be stolen, because it's not stored on devices.

Create a master password

Time to block storage

You can change the time after which the browser blocks access to the password vault and requests a master password during an attempt to access it:

  1. At the bottom, tap  → .
  2. In Passwords and cards, tap Settings → Confirm access when filling in saved passwords.
  3. In the Frequency section, select: After restart, After lock screen, or Never.
  4. If necessary, enter your master password to access the storage.

Disable password manager

Note. Even if you disable the password manager on your current device, it still stays enabled on your other devices.
  1. At the bottom, tap  → .
  2. In Passwords and cards, tap Settings and disable the Save passwords option.

Now the app stops saving passwords and inserting them into authorization forms. Previously entered passwords are encrypted and stored on your device. They become available again if you re-enable the password manager.

To do this, go to the settings and enable the option.
