    Hello,

    Sorry for my reply. I am only an F-Secure user.

    About autofill: when a existing password is updated, password manager add on for Chrome does not update it. This browser extension work automatically or we must manage any time manually any changing?

    Do you mean when you update it on the service side? Like if:

    -> Google Mail account;

    -> required credentials are stored in F-Secure ID Protection. For autofill-feature;

    -> you then decided to change password via Google Mail web-page for account;

    -> F-Secure ID Protection entry is still about previously added password.

    // similary, if you tried to change a password within F-Secure ID Protection - your actual password for service is still 'previous' on the service side.

    Right?

    If yes, maybe - this is how, currently, design is.

    But maybe there can be improvements in some areas or cases. Later or with further releases.

    As such, I feel that it is a bit tricky 'to know' (for F-Secure ID Protection application) that the password is changed in one of yours accounts. So, this browser extension will provide autofill, but stored entries should be managed by you. However, I think it is possible to handle some workarounds for perception of whole routine (so, you can try to put a feature request there: Feature Requests — F-Secure Community)

    If your concern is about something else - sorry for my misunderstanding! And could you provide a bit more information about the case.

    Thanks! And sorry for my English.
