I have an Ideapad z460 with Windows 7 Home Premium Edition. Veriface seems to work properly -- it is installed, my face scanned and stored, and it logs me in when I start Windows.
But the Password Manager associated with it does not do anything. It does not recognise webpages, and nothing happens when I enter a used id + password to any webpage. As far as I understand, a window should pop up asking if I want to store the current password, but it does not. I can launch the Password Manager application, but in the window where it should list the saved passwords, it shows an empty list only.
I tried restarting Windows, removing and reinstalling the application, I tried compatibility view -- nothing works here. I use Internet Explorer 9.
In my former laptop, which was a Thinkpad sl500, the Password Manager for the fingerprint scanner worked fine, I loved the application. And I am really disappointed with this one not working.

i'm looking at the download page for the Z460 (http://consumersupport.lenovo.com/us/en/DriversDownloads/drivers_list.aspx?CategoryID=633979) and I do not see any Password Manager software. Could you capture a screenshot of the Power Manager you use as I would like to see what is the proper name for it.

Serge, it's actually part of Veriface. I have a big file downloading on the Ideapad right now, when it's done, I'll send you a shot of it, but it just says password manager and you have to open Veriface to get it open.

OK do you have any idea how I can insert a screenshot here into a forum post? I am able to capture it, but not to insert here. I have been trying hard, but I do not seem to find the solution.

The easy way would be to upload it to a hosting site like tinypic and then provide a link to it in your reply. I put a screenshotlink in my above post.

Here it is:
(do not be scared, this is in Hungarian language; anyway you will recognize the "Lenovo", "Veriface" and "Password Manager" words, and the layout; the rest says "Password Manager is able to store the log-in information for a webpage and log you in automatically. You did not give the password for the webpage."

Yes. It came pre-installed on my newly purchased machine; so when I saw it did not work properly, I checked to see if it is downloadable from Lenovo and found that it is; so I uninstalled, restarted Windows, downloaded, reinstalled. Still does not work.

I think I might have found out what's happening.
I don't use Veriface for password managing, but I do use it for logging on.
In the notes in help, it says that the Password Manager only supports Internet Explorer 6, 7, and Internet Explorer 8.
I have Internet Explorer 9, so I can't test it.
