FAQ: Where do I start troubleshooting AutoPass?

Last Updated:

eWallet’s AutoPass supports the following browsers:

  • Microsoft Edge (as of eWallet for Windows - desktop v8.4)
  • Mozilla Firefox
  • Google Chrome (and many Chromium-based browsers)
  • Apple Safari

For AutoPass on your Mac or PC to work successfully with Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Apple Safari, it requires that an appropriate extension be installed to your browser.

As browsers are updated it is not uncommon to see an error message like:

The eWallet AutoPass extension is not installed or has been disabled. Click here to install it.


You have a newer version of Firefox. Click here to see if there’s a new version of the eWallet AutoPass Firefox extension available.
