Im doing something wrong
« on: September 06, 2005, 03:24:54 AM »
I'm trying over and over and the sites wont let me in with generated password...(Incorrect password...invalid....etc..........)

I must be missing a step or something.

Does anyone have a step by step procedure to follow.

I know it sounds stupid but I really want to get this to work.

Hi SunKing,

We'd be glad to help. Have you seen this page? If you scroll down a bit, you'll see a couple of animations.

The idea is you have to change your existing passwords to the password generated by PasswordMaker (although in the next release, you can use existing passwords instead by sacrificing some security). Have you done this already?

Regards,
Eric

Correct.

Then smoke a big fattie! No, just kidding. Then, the next time you're at the login page PasswordMaker fills in the password field using one of these methods:
  • Right-click on the password field and select "PasswordMaker" to auto-fill that field with your password
  • Press ALT-` to auto-fill the password field
  • You can turn on "auto-populate" if you go to the Account Settings dialog. Then, whenever you visit that site, the password field is automatically filled with your password as the page loads into your browser. The forthcoming release will also auto-populate the username field (if you want it auto-populated). All you need to do is press "Submit". And yes, people have already requested PasswordMaker optionally "auto-press" the submit button for you :)
Does that help?

-Eric

but wait...if this has to be done on each site I visit and each site has a different password...how does the concept of one master password work?

Because you'll only ever be prompted for ONE password. PasswordMaker maps that password to individually unique passwords for each one of your accounts.

Did you change the passwords on your other sites? PasswordMaker can't do this one-time setup for you.
