1. Context menu
You may use the context menu to autofill logins, passwords, one-time passcodes on websites, or generate passwords. To do so, right-click any input field on a web page and select a desired command from the SafeInCloud Password Manager submenu.
Note: If the extension is locked, you have to press the SafeInCloud icon on the browser toolbar and enter your password before using the context menu commands.
2. Keyboard shortcuts
You may use the keyboard shortcuts to autofill logins, passwords, one-time passcodes on websites, or password generators.
Here is a list of the default shortcuts on Windows / Mac:
Ctrl+Shift+1 / Cmd+Shift+1 – An equivalent of pressing the SafeInCloud icon on the browser toolbar;
Ctrl+Shift+8 / Cmd+Shift+8 – Paste login;
Ctrl+Shift+9 / Cmd+Shift+9 – Paste password;
Ctrl+Shift+7 / Cmd+Shift+7 – Paste one-time password.
Note: If the extension is locked, you have to press the SafeInCloud icon on the browser toolbar and enter your password before using the "paste" keyboard shortcuts.
To see and modify these keyboard shortcuts:
- Right-click the SafeInCloud icon on the browser toolbar
- Select Options from the context menu

3. One-time passwords
Many websites use Two-factor Authentication (2FA) nowadays. In this case you may need to enter a one-time passcode after entering your login and password.
There are several ways to do so. You may use the context menu, or the keyboard shortcuts methods described above.
There is also an option to paste a one-time password from the clipboard. To enable this method, mark the Copy one-time password to the clipboard after pasting login and password checkbox on the Preferences tab in the SafeInCloud extension's Options. Next time you autofill the login and password on a web page, the extension will automatically copy a passcode for the this site into the clipboard. Then just paste it from the clipboard where you need it.
Note: A card should have a One-time password field with a proper data in it, for this functionality to work.
4. Saving passwords
When you login to some website in the browser, and there is no card for this website in your database, you will see the following dialog:
Press the Save button and a new card for this website will be created in the SafeInCloud database.
Tip: You can config this functionality (Off/Ask/Automatically) via the Save passwords setting on the Preferences tab in the SafeInCloud extension's Options
You will see a similar dialog if there is a card for some website in your database, but you’ve entered different login and/or password for this website in the browser.
Note: This functionality might not work on some websites. In such cases, please let us know with this Report problem form.
