Viewing Your Total Strength Score

When you register with Cyclonis Password Manager, the Password Analyzer tab can generate an estimation of your Total Strength Score. In order for Cyclonis Password Manager to estimate your Total Strength Score, you must add your login information from your desired website accounts to your vault. If you have not yet added any website passwords to your vault, you will see the screen displayed below when you visit the Password Analyzer tab under the Password Manager tab.

From this screen, you can click the Add a website now button to start adding your website account login information. Once you have added login information to your vault, this screen will display your estimated Total Strength Score and tips to help improve it. Generally, the Password Analyzer tab will be the first tab you see when you launch the program.

How is the Total Strength Score Estimated?

At the top-right corner of the Password Analyzer screen, you can find your current Total Strength Score. The Total Strength Score is a cumulative estimate that is based on the strength score analysis of the passwords that you have stored in your Cyclonis Password Manager vault.

For more information on the Total Strength Score, you can hover over the question mark icon next to it. The Password Analyzer tab also provides you with steps to help you improve your Total Strength Score.

Logging in to an Account with the Cyclonis Password Manager Browser Extension

There are several ways for you to login to an account stored in your vault with the Cyclonis Password Manager browser extension.

First, you can choose to login automatically to a website. For this, you need to open the Cyclonis Password Manager desktop application and select the Password Manager tab. Then, on the Websites sub-tab, double click the thumbnail of the website you want to automatically log into. To enable this feature, simply enable the Autologin checkbox and click Save. The next time you visit this website, Cyclonis Password Manager will auto-fill your login information from your vault and attempt to log you in automatically. You can also choose to require your master password to access a specific website’s stored login information. The website account will display a Not password protected label if you are not required to enter your master password each time you access this website login data. You may click this label to require the entry of your master password each time you access this website with your stored credentials. If you change it to Password protected , a locked padlock icon will be visible.

You can also click on the Cyclonis Password Manager logo icon on your browser toolbar to display the Cyclonis Password Manager browser extension window. This logo shows a small number in a blue square that indicates the number of accounts you have saved for the current website that is loaded in your browser. When the window appears, the Passwords tab should display a list of the accounts stored in your vault associated with the current website. Simply, click on your chosen account, and let the Cyclonis Password Manager browser extension log you in.

If you have stored multiple account logins for a single website, you may wish to disable the auto-login setting for this website. If the Autologin setting is enabled, you will not be able to choose which account you are automatically logged in with. You may disable this feature for a specific website by opening the Cyclonis Password Manager desktop application, selecting Password Manager > Websites, locating the website, opening its tab and deselecting the Autologin setting.

Alternatively, you can click on the Cyclonis Password Manager logo icon on your browser toolbar to display its window. Next, click on the Open App tab. This will launch your Cyclonis Password Manager desktop application window. To log in to an account, simply select the Password Manager tab and then select the Websites sub-tab.

How Does Autologin Work

On this screen, you are offered the option to be logged into your account automatically by Cyclonis Password Manager. If the log me in automatically checkbox is enabled on the details page of an account stored in your vault, this means that Cyclonis Password Manager can automatically fill in your username and password and submit the login form when you visit that website to help you log in quickly. You can check the log me in automatically checkbox when you are storing a new website account in your vault. You may also modify a previously stored account by double-clicking the account that you want to modify, and checking the log me in automatically checkbox. You may opt to pre-check the log me in automatically checkbox by default when creating new accounts by enabling the Pre-select “log me in automatically” when adding new accounts in the desktop application’s General Settings tab. You can override this feature on a per-website basis.

If Enable website auto-login is checked in the desktop application’s General Settings tab, when you visit a website for which you have selected log me in automatically, Cyclonis Password Manager will attempt to automatically log you into that website using the most recently stored password in your vault.

If you have opted to store multiple accounts for a single website in your vault, the Autologin feature, if enabled, will attempt to log you into that website with the most recently saved or updated account in your vault. If you would like to be able to log in to a single website using different accounts, you should disable the Autologin feature for that specific website using the log me in automatically checkbox on its details page. You can then select which account login information you would like to use at each time you visit that website. To do so, just click the Cyclonis Password Manager logo in a username or password field on the website, and you will prompted to select from the accounts stored in your vault.
