When you change a password on a website and want to change it on LockPass as well, without going through the safe again, you can proceed as follows :

  • Step 1 : On the login page of a website, for which you already have one or more passwords saved in your safe, type or paste your username and your new password into the corresponding fields (do not use auto-complete).

🚨If you use auto-complete for the username and password, and then change it by hand, the change pop-up will not appear.

  • Step 2 : A change password pop-up will open, offering you to update the password. Make sure the password is correct and click « Update ».
