Can I set up Password Manager on 2 PCs using different logins when using the same key code/account?

My Webroot SecureWhere allows me to have the software loaded on 3 PCs.   I set up Password Manager on the first PC and it works great.   I want to set it up on the second PC for my son and need to set up a different login since we both visit the same websites but have different logins (such as facebook).  Is that possible or do we have to share the login?

Hi McDeb
Welcome to the Community Forums.
This is doable but first and just to check; you are both running under the same WSA license, against which you wish to run/have separate Password Manager accounts?
Right, so if that is the case then you will most likely want to have main Console access and control the whole thing, but you can also provide a separate Password Manager account to your son (and others in the future).  To do that:
  1. Log into your Account Conole
  2. At the upper right, click your email address
  3. Select 'Manage Users'
  4. Check how many user profiles you have already set up here.
I presume that it will currently just be one, or have you already set up one for your son?  With a muilti device/user license, you can have up to the same number of user profiles on that same key code.
If you have only one user profile set up, click the 'Create New Users' button.  Each user profile is, just like yours, a specific email address.  Create an additional user for your son.
For his new user profile, once created, go to 'Permissions'.  There you can allow him Console access, or block him from it.
Also, you will need to set the permissions for Passwords.  Also, if you & he so desire you can also allow him separate Backup & Sync access as well.  In that case he will go into a different Backup&Sync folder and so your son will not be able to access your files or passwords, AND vice versa.
Just a quick note here to advise that, the WSA Backup size allocation is for the license/group and NOT per just watch that he does not use it all up with music and/or pictures and the like...;) 
Further suggestion; that you do not provide Admin Console Access to anyone other than yourself, as that will give them access to make changes (perhaps more pertinent if you want to allow further users to make use of these features).
Well, I hope that answers the question/makes sense?  Please do not hesitate to come back here and let us know how you get on or if you have further questions.
