Autochange Password

The Autochange Password feature of Password Manager supports automatic changing of your passwords for several websites without navigating outside the application.

Do not close the tab or access the content present in the tab, when Autochange Password changes the password. Do not switch tabs, as it can interfere with the automatic password change process.

When does Autochange Password require user intervention?

If two-factor authentication is enabled for a login page, you need to provide relevant information in the login page for Autochange Password feature to function.

How does Autochange Password work?

The feature works by directly logging into the websites and generating a strong password on your behalf. The new passwords are generated locally by Password Manager and are transmitted in a secure manner. The newly generated passwords are saved in your Norton Password Manager vault, for which only you have access to.

A green header appears on the tab if the Autochange Password feature successfully updates the password for a website.

A red header appears on the tab if the Autochange Password feature fails to update the password for a website.

Once Autochange successfully changes the password, you should see an increase in the password strength percentage for the login password. An increase in the overall Safety Dashboard score is also seen after Autochange Password successfully changes the password.

What is Archived login category

Archived category contains two different types of logins.

When the Autochange Password successfully changes your password, it also backs up your original password for any reference. These logins have a naming convention <websitename> Autochange Backup <Date Time>.

When the Autochange Password fails after submitting the change password from the website, the login is saved with the new passwords with the naming convention <websitename> Autochange Fail <Date Time>.

You can delete the logins if you do not need the old password information.
