Using the Password Manager in your browser

To enable Webroot Password functions while you work on the Internet, you log in from the Webroot Password drop-down menu in your browser's toolbar. When you are signed in from the drop-down menu, SecureAnywhere can automatically fill in your login credentials for sites that require a user name and password. The menu also allows you to access favorite sites, auto-fill data into web forms, and perform other tasks.

The Webroot icon for the Passwords menu appears differently depending on your browser. The Firefox icon and menu is shown below:

If the Webroot Passwords icon and associated drop-down menu do not appear in your browser, make sure it is enabled in the browser's Add-Ons /Extensions list.

To access Password Manager functions from the drop-down menu:

  1. Open your Internet browser.
  2. After you have Password Management set up, a Webroot SecureAnywhere icon appears in the toolbar of your browser, which provides a drop-down menu of Password Management features. Initially, the icon is greyed-out.

    Tip: If you do not see the icon in your browser, reboot your machine. If you still don't see the icon, check your browser's Add-On or Extensions settings and make sure the Webroot apps are enabled. If you are using a browser other than Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Chrome, see Using other browsers.

  3. To activate the Password Management functions for use as you browse the Internet, click the icon and log in using your SecureAnywhere account login credentials:

  4. Once you have logged in, the Webroot icon turns green. Click the icon or the arrow next to it to display the menu of features.
