Set password for inbound connections

A popup keeps poping up that asks me to set a password for inbound connections. I can't find anything about it in the help file. How do I get rid of this? The moment I turn off and now uninstall the Password Depot extension from Firefox and/or Chrome it's gone.

Does the extension no longer function properly?



  • Hello Martin,

    Since version 14 communication between Password Depot and the add-on can be protected with a separate password additionally. However, it is not mandatory not use this option. 

    Please read the below article carefully where we also give instructions on how to switch off this option:


  • Hallo Christina,

    I have turned that off, but it still pops up strangely enough.

  • Hello Martin, 

    Thank you for your reply!

    Can you please try again by going to Options -> Browsers, select "Protect access with a password" and then deactivate this option as shown in the screenshot below?



    Normally, this feature should not pop up anymore afterwards.

  • Hello Christina,

    That worked! The first time (before i uninstalled the addon) i couldn't change that but after reinstalling the addon I could.

    Now the popup is gone and the brower addon works again.

    Thank you for your assistance!



  • Hello Martin,

    Thank you for your feedback!

    We are very happy to hear that it works now. We wish you all the best!
