Do I have to log in to Bitdefender Central every time I go online for the Password Manager to work?


I subscribed to PASSWORD MANAGER and imported passwords from Chrome. What happens next? What is the PM actually doing? Do I have to stay logged in to Bitfinder Central for the PM to work?

    Hi @Hudsonview2

    You will not have to log in to your Central account every time if you enable the Remember me option. After an allotted amount of time, or if you manually log out, you will have to re-enter your Central email address and password again. Also, in the PM settings, check the box, Disable the login tab at startup, and you won't be prompted to log in again when you restart your browser.

    From this article:

    How can I stop Bitdefender from asking for my Master Password every time I open the browser?

    If you lock your device without closing your browser, Password Manager doesn’t lock and you can access your data when you return. As a security measure, every time you open the browser you have to sign in with your Bitdefender Central account and then input your Master password.

    • To stop the Central sign-in prompt, go into ⚙︎ Settings and tick “Disable login tab on startup”.
    • To stop the master password prompt for 72 hours, check the “Remember me” box on the Unlock your vault screen.

    You may have already discovered this, but just make sure to enable the extension icon in Chrome. From this article:

    If you have any other questions, feel free to ask :)
