Once you added a new account to the Password Manager database, you can change the current password using Password Generator. For this, do the following:

  1. Open either a web-page or a program window where you want to change the password.
  2. Enter the old password in the input field.

  1. In the top right corner of the browser/program, click the caption button and in the drop-down menu select Open Password Manager.

  1. In the left frame of the Password Manager window, select either Web accounts or Application accounts.
  2. In the right part of the Password Manager window, select the necessary account, click the button and in the drop-down menu select Edit.

  1. In the right part of the Password Manager window click the Password generator link.

  1. In the Password Manager window on the Password Generator tab, do the following:
    • To increase the number of symbols in the password, in the Password length string use either the arrow buttons or the keyboard to enter the number of characters.
    • Click the Advanced settings link to add numerals, symbols, upper- and lower-case letters to your password and check the necessary boxes.
    • To disable the use of repeating characters, check the box Eliminate repeating characters.
    • Click the Generate button (to see the created password, click the icon ).

    • Add the created password to clipboard by clicking the Show virtual keyboard button.
    • Click the Save password button.

  1. Open the page of the web site / an application window, where a password for an account is being changed.
  2. Right-click the input field for a new password and from the context menu select Paste.
  3. In the Password Manager window, click the Yes button.
  4. The generated password is stored in clipboard for a specified time period before being deleted. That is why if you exceeded this time period and did not enter the password into the password input, then the combination of CTRL+V will not work and the password will not be pasted into the form. To re-copy the password into clipboard, in the right part of the Password Manager window in the Password field click the button .
  5. In the Password Manager window, click the Save button.

  1. Close the Password Manager window.
  2. Open the page of a web site/ window of an application where you are changing a password and click the button that confirms password change (for example, Save changes).
