Autofil scrambling username and passwords using F-Secure KEY

When trying to use KEY to login to sites everything appears to work except  it populates the fields with corrupted data eg missing letters. "Penpall" will appear as "enall"  or something other than what it should be. The same is happening with my logins.

The data in KEY is correct. Any help with this will be much appreciated.


Windows 8.1

    Hello Pegleg12,


    You can find the latest version which includes among other things, improvements of the autofill feature.


    ftp://FSKEY:[email protected]/fskey-production-3.2.104.msi


    Could you try it out and let us know?

    Hi Ben,

    Thanks for your reply.

    Unfortunately, the link you have indicated does not take me anywhere I can update my version 3.1.112. I can see, elsewhere, that there is a newer version 3.2.104 but I cannot see how to access it.

    The link above should work (you just need to keep ftp username and password).

    So if you just copy this whole link: ftp://FSKEY:[email protected]/fskey-production-3.2.104.msi and open in the browser, you should be able to download it.

    Hi dukavi,

    Managed to download and instal v3.2.104 as instructed but to no avail. Passwords and logins are still being scrambled in website login fields. The data in the "KEY" is accurate and "KEY" seems to be functioning as expected. The scrambled data in the autofill process remains the problem. Should I uninstal and start from scratch?

    Reinstalling the software and removing local storage won't help.
    We need to know additional information about your case:
    - What kind of fields get scrambled? Username or password or both?
    - What is the web address or application that is scumbling the fields.
    - Infromation about OS and browser version is needed.

    You may also PM to me if you think it is better way to handle the problem.

    Windows 8.1 64 bit:

    IE v 11.0.9600.17801

    Mozilla Firefox  38.0.1 (x86)

    I only use Firefox for certain tasks and this morning tried the "KEY" software with it and, lo and behold, it worked perfectly on all the sites I visited!  So, can we make the assumption that the problem lies with Internet Explorer and if so how do we fix it?

    We still cannot reproduce the problem with your setup.

    Any particuliar web-site that causes the problem?

  • Pegleg12Pegleg12 Posts: 9


    Every site using IE- eg is populated with scrambled data. Some parts are usually missing although it is possible sometimes to see the patern of the information.

    Otherwise, using Firefox works perfectly.

    Still not working ao any site using IE. Firefox, however, is  working as expected. Do I just give up on Expolrer11 which I need to use for accessing certain sites?

  • dukavidukavi Posts: 113 F-Secure Employee

    I am still not sure why it doesn't work for IE in your case. It should work fine too.

    It probably might depend on your hardware configuration though. Did you try if it works on other PCs?
