Your Kindle Fire browser’s password storage feature has a “Clear Passwords” button that deletes password data from the device, but you can’t see and change passwords one by one. A different solution is to install and use a third-party password management app like LastPass, SplashID, or KeePass. LastPass was named one of PCWorld’s “Best Products of 2009.” This kind of app not only stores and encrypts your user names and passwords, but also lets you see and change the information right on the Kindle’s screen.
Install the LastPass app, open it, and then enter your email address and a password. Tap “Create Account,” and when the confirmation window comes up, tap “Create Account” again. This will be the only password you need to remember to get into your LastPass login manager.
Type your email address and password again, and then set up a password reminder. Put a check mark next to this to confirm that you use LastPass and have read the licensing agreements. Click “Make an Account.”
Tap “OK” on the message that pops up to confirm your password. Then, on the next screen, enter your password again. Again, click “Create Account.”
Tap “OK” on the next window to agree to the free trial period. Tap the “Home” icon at the bottom left to close the app.
Open the browser by tapping “Web,” then choose “LastPass” from the list of browsers. Go to a site that requires you to enter a password.
Use your user name and password to get in. When you submit the information, LastPass will show a message in the notification bar or the number of notifications in the top left corner. Tap this or the number of notifications.
Tap “LastPass” to accept the password and save it to the app.
You can change the “Save Site” information by giving the site a new name or adding it to a “Group” preset. To save, tap “Save.” When you go to the site again, you will be asked if you want to open it with the Kindle’s built-in browser or with LastPass, which will automatically fill in the login fields.
Tap the name of a site to see or change the login details. Tap “Show” next to the password to see the letters and numbers instead of the dots that are used to hide them.
Buy the SplashID app, install it, and run it. Type in a master password and click “OK.” When asked to confirm, re-enter the master password. This will be the only password you need to remember to get to the information in your SplashID login manager.
Allow the sample records to be loaded. This will help you set up your account for the first time. Enter your email address.
Set a master password and a password hint in the spaces provided.
Tap the “Menu” icon, which is a square with three horizontal lines and no bottom, and choose “Add Item.”
Choose a “Type,” like “Web Login,” and enter the user name, password, notes, or anything else that helps you identify the site. When you’re done, tap “Done.” When you go to this URL in your browser from now on, SplashID will automatically fill in your logins.
Tap the name of a site from the list of accounts you’ve saved. Tap the “Menu” icon and choose “Unmask” to see the letters and numbers instead of dots. To make changes, tap “Edit” from the same menu.
Get the KeePass app, install it, and open it. Enter a master password and click “OK.” When asked to confirm, type in the master password again. This is the only password you’ll need to remember to get to the data in your KeePass login manager.
Make sure you know where your KeePass database is saved.
Tap “Internet” to start logging into a website, and then tap “Add Entry” at the bottom left.
Type in the name of the site, its URL, your username, and your password twice. To save, tap “Save.” When you point your browser to this site from now on, KeePass will automatically fill in your logins.
To manage logins, tap a site name from your list of saved passwords. Tap the “Menu” icon at the bottom of the screen, which looks like a square with no bottom and three horizontal lines, and choose “Show Password” to see the letters and numbers instead of encrypted dots. To make changes, tap “Edit.”
