Installing the browser buttons

Connecting Password Boss to your browser just takes a minute. When the browser button is installed you will be able to automatically login to webs site and fill in forms on online.

How browser buttons work

After successfully loading our browser button into your browser, you’ll see the Password Boss owl PB-Icon-presentation-grey.png appear in the fields on web pages. If the owls are not showing it then you need to install the browser button.

You need to install the browser button for each browser you use.

After the install finishes you’ll see a green owl (in Safari the owl will be grey) next to the address bar in your browser. When you click the owl you will see all of your saved passwords.

Troubleshooting:

If the owl next to the address bar is grey (except in Safari) it means your browser button is having trouble communicating with the Password Boss app. Generally restarting your browser fixes this.
