Vault password auto-fill
How do I get my Webroot vault to auto-fill the password, just like it does my email address? I use chrome for my browser.

I'm sorry Gdy, lets try this KB article on auto fill in the Password Management and please go here
Please let me know if I haven't answered your question.
Welcome to the Community Forums.
If I may interject at this point...if you are looking for a way to have the password you need to enter to get into/use the Password Manager, the answer is...you cannot. There is purposefully no way to do that for very good security reasons, i.e., that is how the Password Manager is designed to operate.
Hope that helps clarify the issue?
OK, but it would very much help if you would clearly define which password you are refering to in this case. It is the password to what that you are trying to get autofilled by Password Manager?
Going to the Account Console you can auto fill and edit, Is this what you are looking for?
This example shows how to configure the Webroot toolbar to automatically log you into websites when using the Google Chrome version of the toolbar. The instructions for the Internet Explorer and Firefox versions of the toolbar are very similar.
Log in to your MyWebroot Account > click the Passwords tab > Click Edit or Add site > check the boxes that say Automatically fill and Automatically log in
Log in to your Webroot toolbar > click on the Webroot icon
and select Sites > click the site you wish to auto log in with > click AutoFill and AutoLogin (refresh the site or logout and refresh if you need to).
Click on the Webroot icon
and select Preferences > select Advanced > select Automatically login to sites if time since last login > enter the number of seconds desired > select Save
Do you see this in Google Chrome
That is what I thought you were alluding to and so my earlier reply stands...you cannot set Password Manager or WSA to do that. There is purposefully no way to do that for very good security reasons, i.e., that one password opens up all the other password details stored in the Password Manager, and by having the ability to autofill that master password means that if someone, who should not, got hold of your machine then they would have access to all your storeed credentials.
It is for that reason that this this specific autofill cannot be set as you would like it to be. The reason I say this is that many moons ago I asked the very same question, and what I have outlined above is the reply I received from Webroot.
Now, if you have indeed managed to find a way to do this then please let us know...we would be intrigued to see/try it.
Thank you so much for clarifying this! I appreciated the input! Learning all th etime!:D
Given that we have a difference of opinion in terms of whether this can be done or not I respectfully suggest that you Open a Support Ticket, and seek the advice of the Support Team.
I may be wrong as to what I am saying but I do have a response from them, albeit a fair while back, advising that this was not possible by design, hence why I said I would be interested to see how you have achieved this.
I await their feedback with interest.
Thank you...and I stand corrected...but also horrified that this is possible, given the security implications as I mentioned earlier.
By doing this now anyone who knows the feature and gets hold of you laptop (and it is in my opinion especially dangerous when aplied to a laptop as that has a much greater chance of falling into the wrong hand than a desktop) can have access to all your login ids & their associated passwords.
Not good, given the very significant decrease in security this brings about...just as the warning method that is displayed says when one checks that 'Remember Password' check box.
Having said all of that, again, my apologies for doubting you...and it just goes to show that one cannot know it all and is never to old to learn.
Your welcome and Thank you for your patience in the matter and we greatly appreciated your feedback!
We are Volunteers here who love to help others and it was a pleasure to help you today as you helped us!:D

I have it set that way on my computer at the moment 🙂
