    Hey, all!

    I was wanting to turn on Password Keeper's autofill feature but it warns me that by doing so I'm disabling the password prompt upon booting the phone. Can anyone tell me what kind of security risk this poses? I'm not sure what the difference even is between entering my password upon boot and again when I get to my lock screen.

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    If you create a new device password after setting up Password Keeper, you'll be able to re-enable the password upon boot option.


    I've never understood why BlackBerry thought it was okay to release an app that disables an important security feature. A bit strange for a "security company".

    And that won't disable Password Keeper from allowing me to use autofill?

    On another note; for anyone using Password Keeper there is still the vulnerability I have had on two Priv's now where when minimizing the app I can see all the contents of whatever I just had open in the minimized window, yet when I maximize it it's locked out and I have to renter my password. Happens every time. Minimized the content is viewable, maximized it locks down like it should. A strange behavior for an app that is supposed to be very secure from the biggest name in security.

    Weird. Mine goes blank when minimized.

    What version of PWK are you using? Is it up to date? What phone are you using?

    I have been able to duplicate this issue. If you select a password keeper entry and the let the screen timeout, password keeper will revert back to its lock screen. But when you minimize to the recent Apps screen, it will show the contents of the last selected entry.

    It appears that once the screen timeout occurs, the issue will continue even if you switch back to password keeper, navigate to another listing, and try the recent app screen. Clearing from the recent app screen before reopening password keeper fixes the problem (until the next screen timeout).
