software password methods (and keychain)

I try to refine my use of passwords on my different computers and I wonder if someone wouldn't mind offering their expertise in a repair tutorial.

the problem is that I have safari on a laptop and a desktop computer, and these are connected via icloud. I also have an iphone. no doubt all these are connected to the same (?) I guess that KEYCHAIN that stores passwords for things like Web sites and credit cards and autocompleting of personal information.

then I also have the 1Pass for mac software.

I tend to store passwords in the 1Pass software but also click to confirm the storage of the passwords in the keychain. However, I do not understand how it works, or if they are related or completely independent or what.

for example, if I pay for something online Keychain nicely stores my credit card data.

If I connect to a site Web plugin safari 1Pass stores well my login information

However, I keep a backup of my passwords in the software of taking notes that I seem to need it often (for example when the password in 1Pass does not work for some reason any). also, here are the passwords but not exceptionally safe passwords generated by an algorithm. I would switch to more secure passwords, but I can't understand how it worked.

1 1Pass doesn't seem to enter password in ANY Web site I have access, so sometimes I have to ACCESS the database and FIND the Web site and then manually enter the information.

2 1Pass does not seem to automatically enter the date in a website on the IPHONE when in safari (I guess that there is no plugin IOS?) so in this case, when I land on a page that I need to do something with - I need to BACK out of safari, enter 1Pass, FIND THE WEB site, then navigate to the Web site through the 1Pass app and then try to connect to the site. It is a major pain.

3 /if/ a password does not work in 1Pass and /if/ does not save the password manually in the note-taking software, what would I? I guess I reset the password via the Web site and enter the new password in 1Pass.

4 how the KEYCHAIN interface with all this? It even works or somehow, it works in the background? done only passwords autocomplete KEYCHAIN and connections in safari or he asks a guest to do this? If I do not get a command prompt to add a Keychain password can I add it myself?

5. what happens in the workflow above when I use someone else's phone because my battery died or if I have to use someone else's computer? I guess I could connect my iCloud account if it is computer confidence of a friend and get access to the safari via Keychain passwords? I would do that on another iPhone? I mean, I couldn't do it on someone else non-iphone I could? and how do I enter 1Pass when not to use one of my devices?

6. give the #5 question, it seems almost vital to keep a list of passwords in the note-taking software that is independent of the software (1Pass or Keychain). is it possible to export this information in an easily accessible document that I keep with me or print?

Thank you


Given that most of your questions related to 1Password, I suggest to take a look at his support page here.

4 Keychain can provide auto-complete for usernames and passwords in safari, it could also before entering a username and password. If you delete the text entered, it will give the list a list of usernames under the name of user and password text field. When you have a valid password field, Keychain should see the a key symbol to the right in the text field, clicking on it will bring down a list of names of users and saved passwords.

• You can add the password yourself.

5. When you connect to a device with your account Keychain will be disabled by default and will ask you to turn it on in settings. Or even require that you select to use iCloud Keychain during the implementation of a device. And to turn it on, you need to provide confirmation on another verified device, or type a security code, or both depending on your security settings. More on this in the FAQ here. Don't forget, the keychain is a service from Apple and will not run on non-Apple operating systems.

6. keep your passwords on a document saved and synchronized accessible via internet is a security risk and is not recommended. However, if you want the notes that can be synchronized and accessible from the internet, Apple built in Notes app serves this purpose. Set a password to lock your notes slightly sensitive data such as numbers of national identification and emails can also protect from prying eyes. However, it is highly preferable to avoid storing sensitive data such as passwords in this application.

  • Half, who wrote the software password Bank (PWDBank)?

    I recently bought a Satellite Pro with the fingerprint reader for password memory.
    But I can hardly believe that the Pwdbank software appears unfinished or poorly thought out.

    My main complaints: -.
    1. when I go on the Internet banking site I don't want Pwdbank to remember my passwords.
    Then why hell is there not an option to stop the pop-up "Finger Scan" that appear on some Web sites?
    Each time, it appears that I have to press 'X' - it's annoying bloody!

    2. I just disconnected a site, the window appears again. I don't want to!

    3. the software of Pwdbank somehow interferes with some other software when a large dark blue border appears around a clickable button.
    The button does not work then. I know 100% for you, it is Pwdbank that, because when I get out the application this problem NEVER occurs.

    4. the software Pwdbank "plant, often" with an error message box that appears.
    Sorry that I don't have the exact wording right now as I have no record.

    Does anyone know if there is a patch or software update available to address all these very annoying problems on what is otherwise a great feature?

    Thank you


    Have you tested a different internet browser? Like Akuma says Firefox is a good alternative and I only use it.
    You may notice the problem under Firefox and Internet Explorer too?

    In addition, I would like to try to reinstall the software password Bank. Maybe it can help you solve some problems

  • Lets run the multilingual method and input of blackBerry Smartphones

    I've updated the 7.1 os and it took me to multilingual method and input. I had once managed a whole upward. in any case, it seemed now missing on the phone, and on the desktop PC does not show language. I did remove the OSI and reinstall, the the same problem. I want that it multilingual and other language input method. Any suggestion? Please take note.

    OK... that now makes sense... the automatic method detects your BB and the level of operating system installed, but is not able to download correctly what it needs from the Internet to continue. And the Red Star means that there is an update, he wants to offer you, but again he has trouble to download what suits him.

    So, what you need to do is to defeat the automatic method and force instead of things. The easiest way is, on a PC (you can not do on MAC):

    1) uninstall all the BB OS packages from your PC,

    (2) make sure you have the BB Desktop Software already installed

    (3) download and install to your PC, the BB OS package you want:

    • If you want to just reload your current version, you can access your carriers download portal and get the same exact package you are already running
      • KB23393 How to check the model number and the version of the BlackBerry device software on a BlackBerry smartphone
    • But if you want to go for an update, you can see what your company has, or you can dig into all of the companies that support your specific model BB number and compare versions of each provision.
    • Also consider this information as you choose your BB OS package:
      • KB05305 Location of support for BlackBerry smartphones

    4) remove, on your PC, all copies of the SELLER. XML... There will be at least one and maybe 2, and they will be located in the same way or to (it changes based on your version of Windows) these files:

    • C:\Program Files (x 86) \Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader
    • C:\Users\(your Windows username) \AppData\Roaming\Research In Motion\BlackBerry\Loader XML

    (5) run the Desktop software and connect your BB

    If you chose to update your BB OS, then the software should immediately offer the bundle of BONES that you have installed on your PC, before you can do anything else. If, during the process, your BB votre BB a '507' error, simply unplug the power cord of the BB USB and reinsert it. do nothing else... This should allow the installation to continue.

    If you have chosen your BB exact same OS package that is already running on your BB, then you should be able to proceed with the installation language you want (assuming, based on the location of KB, you have installed the right BB OS package that includes the language of your choice).

    Do not forget to save.

    Good luck and let us know!

  • Is it possible to restore without losing my passwords, settings and especially favorite?

    Recently, my computer has been infected with a malware that has removed some DLLs and damaged the Firefox, Opera and Google programs.

    The other two browsers I reinstalled without any problem. But Firefox is my main browser and I'm afraid of losing all my information.

    Is it possible to restore without losing my passwords, settings and especially favorite?

    You can check if the Firefox profile folder is always present.

    If that's the case then Firefox will automatically detect its presence and use.

    You should regularly make a backup of your personal data stored in the Firefox profile folder in order to avoid a potential loss in case of problems.
