Using your passwords#

When you land at a connection page, blue padlocks are placed automatically in the password and login fields. By clicking on the padlocks, you will be able to select your username and your fields will be autimoatically filled in.

  • Condition 1: Ensure that thebrowser extension is installed.
  • Condition 2: Ensure a proper connection with LockSelf.
  • Step 1 : Click on any padlock*:

    • A pop-up appears suggesting one or more usernames.
  • Step 2 : Click on the username of your choice.

    • The login and password are then automatically added.
    • All that is left to do is connect to your application.

Shortcuts from the interface#

When autocomplete does not work, or is unable to work (for applications downloaded to your computer, for example), you can use the clipboard shortcut directly accessible on the interface. These buttons allow you to copy the login and the password. Then you just have to paste these details in your application's connection fields.


Note: if the "Hide passwords" option is enabled by your administrator, shortcuts cannot be used. Only autocomplete will be able to be used.
