FAQ: What is AutoPass and how do I use it on Windows PC, Mac, iOS or Android?

Last Updated:

eWallet’s Windows PC, Mac, Android and iOS AutoPass feature will fill in a username and password on a web page that you’ve accessed by clicking the URL on the card.

AutoPass is available for:

  • Windows PC (desktop), Windows 7, 8, 10, 11
  • macOS
  • iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch)*
  • Android OS (phones and tablets)*
  • Windows 8 / Windows RT *

AutoPass supports the following browsers:

  • Microsoft Edge  (as of eWallet for Windows - desktop v8.4)
  • Mozilla Firefox
  • Google Chrome
  • Apple Safari (on macOS)
  • Internet Explorer 6 through 11 (Windows only) (Internet Explorer is no longer a supported browser)

How It Works

For example, if you make a Password card which has the following fields:

URL: my.yahoo.com
User Name: jamestk
Password: 123456

Note: The actual Field Types in the card must be “AutoPass Web Link”  “AutoPass Username”  “AutoPass Password”

When you tap the URL in the card face, the page will appear in your browser (or in some cases, an in-app browser control) with the name (jamestk) and password (123456) filled in.

AutoPass is more secure, as well as easier than entering information by hand. See why.

You can turn off AutoPass for the whole wallet, if you don’t want to use it. Use the Options -> Enable AutoPass option to turn AutoPass on and off. (If you want eWallet to launch your system’s default browser instead of Internet Explorer or Firefox, disable AutoPass.)

Note that AutoPass only handles a fixed number of redirects. If you type https://www.etrade.com into your browser, for example, it is redirected several times before it reaches https://us.etrade.com/e/t/home. In order to protect itself (and you) from sites that redirect over and over again, AutoPass limits the number it accepts on some platforms. If you encounter a site that isn’t working, try pasting the final URL into the card.
