Password manager

Learn how to manage your app credentials

The Desktop.com Password manager stores passwords for apps in one place. In this way, you will not have to select a username and password on the login page or push the login button each time you want to launch the app.


The Desktop.com Password manager will autofill your app credentials after you set them up for the app.

If you haven’t installed the Browser plugin, you will get a prompt to install the extension.The browser plugin automatically recognizes when new credentials to apps or sites are entered and allows you to add password-based apps from your browser to a desktop. You won’t need to create apps manually and later update login credentials, as this will be configured automatically

What happens if I forget the password for my Desktop.com account ?

You can still change the password for logging in to Desktop.com by following the instructions on how to change your password. You will restore an access to your Desktop.com account, but your workspace owner will need to approve your password change in order to restore an access to your app credentials (as you will still have your old password set for unlocking app credentials before the owner’s approval)

If you are the workspace owner, you will get a notification, asking you to confirm the password change for the user. You will need to accept the password request change in order to grant the user access to stored passwords

If you are workspace owner, the password reset will cause loosing an access to your stored app credentials
