  • Thanks for this, it works.
    However, I have to re-type my "Depot to browser" password once every day. I do not have to do this when using Chrome. Any ideas why the password is not saved permanently in New Edge?

  • Hi Raphael,

    Thank you for your feedback!

    Could you please describe the issue a bit more in detail? Which password do you mean?

  • Hi Christina
    Sorry for being unclear. Let me try to clarify:
    It's the password you can define in Password Depots Options -> Browser -> ☑ Protect access with a password

    When you later open the browser and navigate to the first site that needs credentials, the browser plugin (the one described here in this article) will prompt for this password so it can communicate to Password Depot. It used to "stick" but in MS Edge (chromium) I have to re-type it every day.

    Best regards
