Seamlessly auto-logon to websites and applications, access existing passwords, and add new secrets – without leaving the site you’re on, or the browser tab you’re in.
Does this story of online password pandemonium sound familiar?
Paul, an online marketing professional, spends most of his workday logging into and working in different websites and applications. He checks AdWords accounts, posts social media updates, makes and processes payments, registers with promising new sites, and more. And for each login and registration, he has to open a new browser tab as well as return to his account to retrieve or store each password. That’s a lot of browser tabs and Zoho Vault trips, and frankly, a lot of confusion – even with Zoho Vault storing and protecting all of his passwords in one place.
What Paul could really use is a solution to the multi-tab madness he endures on a daily basis, a solution like our new Zoho Vault browser extensions. But before he buys into the browser extensions, Paul has a few questions, including…
Well, what do browser extensions do?
Browser extensions are like tiny superpowers that extend your browser’s ability to assist you in your tasks. Now, we’re doing our part to make your day easier by fortifying Zoho Vault with browser extensions for Chrome and Firefox. The latest feature addition to our online password manager for businesses, these browser extensions are designed to make your day-to-day password management and auto-logon activities seamless.
How exactly do they make jobs easier?
Once you install and deploy the Zoho Vault extension, you’ll be able to perform most of your password management operations from whichever site you are on. We’re calling this “on-site password management” because you don’t have to leave a site, go to Zoho Vault, and then return to the site just to create or manage your passwords! Instead, you stay put as the browser extension helps you auto-fill and auto-logon – all from the website or application login page itself.
Here’s a list of what you can do with Zoho Vault extensions:
§ View, Add, and Edit Secrets: Once you sign in and enter your passphrase in the Zoho Vault extension, a list of all your secrets, both enterprise and personal, will be displayed. You can also add a new secret into Zoho Vault from the browser extension itself. It basically opens the “Add Secret” dialog box, and you can enter and save the details. The existing secrets can also be edited from the extension. The data will be synchronized with Zoho Vault.
§ Auto Logon: You can log in to any website or application by just clicking the auto-logon icon shown beside the required secret in the browser extension field. A new browser window will open and log you in.
§ Auto Fill: If you are on the log-in page of a website or application and the related credentials have already been stored in Zoho Vault, you can just click the ‘Auto Fill’ button and then manually submit for auto-logon. Alternatively, if you right-click in the login page of any website whose credentials have already been stored with Zoho Vault, you will see Zoho Vault icon, which will show the list of passwords related to that site. You can click that and it will auto fill details.
§ You also have an option to copy usernames and passwords, so you can paste in some other place as required. Moreover, your passwords and related data are automatically synchronized every time you log in to the browser extension.
More important, are they safe?
Absolutely! At Zoho, security is a paramount concern. The extensions have been designed to ensure the highest level of data security and privacy.
The highest level of security has been ensured in all stages of data retrieval and transit, including
- validating passphrases,
- retrieving encrypted data from the Zoho Vault server,
- storing other data in the background as local records and
- passing credentials to websites.
Whenever the user logs out or remains idle for a specified time, local data gets completely erased.
Sounds good right? So, go on, add the Zoho Vault extension to your Chrome or Firefox browser, and take advantage of on-site password management that puts an end to multi-tab madness.
