General Information

General

The General tab (Tools > Settings > General) under the Settings menu contains two sections: Browser Extension and Desktop Application.

Browser Extension

The Cyclonis Password Manager browser extension settings can be modified via the Browser Extension (Tools > Settings > General > Browser Extension) section.

The Browser Extension section contains the following settings:

  • Prompt to save my passwords on login/registration
  • Enable website auto-login
  • Pre-select “log me in automatically” when adding new accounts
  • Reset website prompt settings
  • Prompt to log in when browsing
  • Display logout confirmation
  • If Prompt to save my passwords on login / registration is enabled , when you visit a website in the browser (if the Cyclonis Password Manager browser extension is installed) you will be prompted to save entered passwords to the Cyclonis Password Manager vault. This behavior will be enabled when you log in to your existing accounts and when you register for new accounts. If it is disabled , logins and passwords will not be saved and/or updated by the Cyclonis Password Manager browser extension.
  • If Enable website auto-login is enabled , Cyclonis Password Manager will attempt to automatically log you in when you visit a website with stored account data. Keep in mind that the automatic login may not take place, even if this feature is enabled, if the Website URL saved in your vault is NOT the same address as the login form. If this setting is disabled , you will not be logged into your accounts automatically. You can still use Cyclonis Password Manager to log in to a website if this feature is turned off. To do so, you can click the Log in button, accessible by clicking the Cyclonis Password Manager icon in a username or password field.

    You can also manage auto-login on a per-account basis by double-clicking a website entry in the Websites section of Cyclonis Password Manager and checking or unchecking the log me in automatically checkbox for that website.

Clicking the Reset website prompt settings button will reset Cyclonis Password Manager website prompts to their default states. If you have set Cyclonis Password Manager to not prompt you to remember usernames and passwords for specific websites, these settings will be reset and you will prompted the next time that you visit these websites to enter or create login information.

  • If Prompt to log in when browsing is active and you are not logged into your Cyclonis Password Manager account, you will be prompted to log in to Cyclonis Password Manager when you click the Cyclonis Password Manager logo in a field on websites you visit.
