Folx Password Manager. User Guide

Folx comes with a built-in password manager that allows you to safely store your passwords for different websites, relieving you of the need to remember them all. (In the FREE version you can store 2 passwords at most; in PRO you can keep as many of them as you want.)

Folx supports two types of authentication: so-called Basic authentication and cookie-based authentication.

Tip: You can tell which authentication method is used by a particular website by how you usually sign in to your account on this website in a browser: if you do this via the browser’s native login prompt, the website uses HTTP Basic authentication; if you enter your credentials into a form on the web page itself, it most likely uses cookie-based authentication.

To open Password Manager, select it under the main menu:

folx-menu-pw-manager-300x257

folx-pw-manager-300x154

To add a server to the list, press Add, select the appropriate authentication method and indicate the host name and other details. Here is an example:

folx-pw-add-01-300x154

folx-pw-add-02-300x154

When downloading from a host that requires authentication, you can specify your credentials by checking the Authentication box:

folx-pw-autofill-274x300

If it’s the first time you download from this server, you’ll need to invoke Password Manager by pressing Saved passwords and add this host to the list (see above). On the next download your password will be filled in automatically.
