The most important convenience feature of the Password Safe Mobile app is probably the automatic entry. This function transfers the access data from the Password Safe Mobile app to the corresponding login masks. Automatic entry works both on websites which are called up via the browser and in other apps.
In order to ensure automatic registration, a few conditions must be met. First, the automatic entry must be set up in the settings. If the iOS keychain is not needed, it should be deactivated. This will make handling a little easier. Finally, of course, a database connection must exist and access to passwords must be possible.
The automatic entry always occurs when a login mask is found. No matter if it is located in an app or on a website. With some login masks the process of automatic entry starts automatically. With other masks you have to type once into the first field. The automatic entry itself can be divided into three different scenarios.
Depending on the configuration and scenario, the dialog for entry can have different characteristics:
- First, one or more passwords are displayed which match the current page or app. These can be selected and entered with one click.
- It is also possible to open the dialog to select a password. If no password is found, this dialog will be displayed directly.
- Finally, the iOS keychain can be opened. If this function is not needed, it can be deactivated. The corresponding option is then no longer offered.
No password found
If no password is found that matches the app or the website you are visiting, the desired password must first be selected.
Only one password found
If there is a data record which contains exactly the URL which is called, the corresponding password can be suggested. A simple click on the password is then sufficient to forward the data to the website or app.
Several passwords found
If several suitable passwords are found in the database, the desired one must be selected.
