Password Genie isn’t filling in one of my forms!

Password Genie’s form-fill function will not work in the default Android browser. This is a technical limitation as the Android browser does not permit third-party apps to add their own functionality to it. To use form-fill, you must launch the Password Genie browser from within the Password Genie app.

If you are using the Password Genie browser and still find that form-fill is not working on a site, please contact our technical support staff and let them know the exact site. Our development team can investigate the site and ensure our form-fill functions properly.

Password Genie Secure Token

The Password Genie Secure Token is used to authenticate the account owner when doing tasks such as creating vaults, changing vault passwords, etc. This Secure Token is created during the initial setup and cannot be reset.

What is a Vault?

A Vault is a password protected container that contains Login, Bookmark, Form Fill, and Wallet information. A single account can contain multiple vaults, each with their own email and password assigned. Vaults are synchronized across devices and platforms.

Account Password, Token, Vault Password… How do I keep all these straight?!
  • Account Password: The password that is used across all your SecurityCoverage products (FileHopper, SecureIT and Identi-Fi)
  • Password Genie Token: This is a new type of password that is specific to Password Genie. The Token is created at the time of the first Password Genie Rewrite install and is used to create new Vaults and import previously exported Password Genie Vaults. *****PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE UNABLE TO RESET OR RECOVER THE YOUR TOKEN IF THEY FORGET IT!!!! THIS IS FOR SECURITY PURPOSES AND THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO EXCEPTIONS*****
  • Password Genie Vault Password: This password is unique to each Vault created by the user. There is also the ability to add Two-Factor Authentication via email or SMS on an individual Vault basis. ****Note: You are unable to reset a Vault password if they are ever locked out, but can change it at any time from within the console.***
How many Vaults can I have?

You can have up to 50 Vaults.

Do all of my Vaults sync to my other devices?

Only Vaults that have been setup as ‘Cloud Storage’ will be synced to your other devices. If a Vault is setup as ‘Local Storage’ it will only be available on the device on which it was created.

Can I backup my Local Storage Vaults?

Yes, you can export a Local Vault at any time from within the console and import it into any other PG install of that device type as long as you have the correct login credentials for the Vault.

How do users export Local Storage Vaults?

Password Genie will detect if you have a Local Storage Vault when they uninstall the program and prompt them if they want to export it. This is the only way to export a Local Storage Vault.

Will Settings sync across my Vaults?

The Password Genie Settings are individually stored in each Vault and will sync across devices separately.

Can I use different emails for different Vaults?

Yes, each Vault has its own email which can be the same or different that the account email.

What is Two-Factor Authentication?

Two-Factor Authentication (also known as 2FA) is a new security feature that allows you to configure Password Genie to send an SMS message or email when a login is attempted on a vault. This feature can be enabled in the Password Genie client Settings.

Can I configure different 2FA phone numbers or emails for different Vaults?

Yes, each vault has its own Two-Factor Authentication settings. It is even possible to have Two-Factor authentication enabled for some Vaults but not others!

Can I use 2FA with Local Storage Vaults?

Yes. Even though the Vault data does not sync to other devices, it does still connect to the internet and can have Two-Factor Authentication enabled.

What if I installed and got the “old” version?

This happened because you already had an existing Password Genie account prior to this update. We are still working on updating all of our existing users to the new version, but this will take some time. Rest assured that you will be able to experience the new and improved Password Genie soon!
