Authomate provides easy to use utilities to import your existing user names and passwords into your StrongPass App. For your security, imported credentials are encrypted before being transferred from your computer to the App. Your credentials will be decrypted and imported into your App the next time you log in, or within a few minutes if you are already logged in.


Import from Browser (Windows)


1) Click on the Windows icon in the lower left of your screen and expand the list of All Apps. Select the Import Utility under Authomate StrongPass.


2) The Import Utility will display a QR Code as shown below. Open the StrongPass App on your phone. If you have previously paired your App with this computer, a Proximity request will automatically be displayed on your App to log into authomate.com. If you do not see this request, press the Scan Now button on your App and scan the QR code.


3) The Import Utility will look for saved passwords in the browsers on your computer and display a summary. Some browsers may require you to enter a password to access saved passwords. Select the browsers you want to import from, then press the Import Passwords button.


4) A completion message will be displayed when the import utility is done. If your StrongPass App is open, you will see a notification in the upper left corner in a few minutes when the accounts have been received by the App. You can also lock and unlock your App to see them right away.
