About Password Management

Webroot Subscription Information!

Password Management is available only in the Complete edition. Click here for upgrade instructions.

The Password Manager allows you to create a secure password for all your website transactions, automatically remember your user names and passwords, and automatically fill in web forms. By using the Password Manager, you never need to remember multiple login names and passwords again.

To keep your data safe from hackers, the Password Manager encrypts all your login and password data on your local computer. Webroot uses the same encryption method employed by the US Government for Top Secret data. The encrypted data is meaningless to Webroot and to anyone else without the decryption key. This key is stored on your own computer and is created from your email address and master password. Your personal data is never sent over the Internet and is never stored on Webroot servers.

Note: This section provides a quick overview of the Password Manager. For further instructions, see the Passwords User Guide at Webroot's SecureAnywhere Help and Product Guides page.

You can use the Password Manager, as follows:

  1. Log in to your Webroot account from the browser toolbar. After the Passwords component downloads (see Downloading the Passwords component), you can log in to your Webroot account from a browser toolbar. When logged in, the Password Manager detects any information you enter in web forms and prompts you to save the data for future use.

  2. Define or capture login credentials and personal information. You can either allow the Password Manager to capture data as you enter it in a website or you can manually define the data in the SecureAnywhere website. (See Capturing login credentials from a website and Populating fields in web forms.)

  3. Access a website that requires a login or personal data in web forms. After defining login credentials and personal information, you can log in to your Webroot account from the toolbar each time you open a browser. When you are logged in, the Password Manager automatically detects fields in a form and can log in to the website automatically. The Webroot icon appears at the end of the fields to indicate that the login information is stored in the Password Manager. (See Logging in to websites.)

  4. Manage your website information in the SecureAnywhere website. If you want to change your login credentials for any website, you can open your SecureAnywhere account (my.webrootanywhere.com), click Go to Passwords, and edit the information. (See Managing credentials in the Passwords page.)
