Need T420 ThinkVantage Password Manager for Dummies

2011-12-19, 0:10 AM

OK.  I"m an idiot.  How is the password manager supposed to work?  The "help" section says this about making a new entry: When you type in a user name and password for the first time in a particular Web site or Web page that requires this information, Password Manager automatically displays the following prompt: "Would you like to save this Web Site with Password Manager?"

 

I have created several new user names and passwords at sites since using this new computer, and I have yet to see the Password Manager ask any questions.  What am I missing?

I guess I just want stuff to work when I pay for it, and it's frustrating that I just can't make any sense the instructions.

What web browser are you using? The current Password Manager that is part of Client Security Solutions does not work with Chrome and has issues with the latest Firefox. Internet Explorer 9 should work fine. If using Internet Explorer, have you checked if the Password Manager plug-in is loaded?

Another option is to try the beta version of the new Password Manager 4.0. You will have to unistall the CSS/PM currently in your laptop to use PM v4.0. I just recently did that and am very happy with it. There is a thread about this in the forum.

Good luck!
