If you wish to edit your credential, simply double click on it.

Otherwise, when you hover over the credential you want to edit, you will see two buttons on the icon for the actions available. From top to bottom:

  • Go to the website. The page will open in your browser
  • The menu icon will allow you to take further actions, such as edit this credential, share it, copy the password, etc. (see below for more information)

Once within the credential, in order to see the different options available, simply hover over the fields with your mouse and the options will appear written in full words.

In this same window, you will have three more options available by clicking on the More options button. These options are as follows:

  • Always log me in to this website: This allows the auto-login option for this credential.
  • Always require master password: Allow you to enable a master password requirement each time this credential is used.
  • For this subdomain only: the auto-login will only work for this subdomain

You can also click on the Share button at the top of the window to share this credential with someone else.
