Browser extension for PassHub.net

As opposed to annoying password manager extensions, the PassHub extension is a non-intrusive tool to fill username/password fields in login forms.

By no means is the PassHub extension a silver bullet, but rather a semi-manual assistant that shows a choice of the appropriate accounts and fills usernames and passwords into login forms on websites. Automatic form filling is more about guessing, not about well-defined algorithms. Generally, the PassHub extension works on approximately 80% of sites. For other cases, use the basic Copy/Paste technique of PassHub.net itself.

Chrome-based browsers

Installation

On a desktop Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Opera, Vivaldi, Brave, and other Chromium-based browsers follow this link: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/passhub/bamjbfhfacpdkenilcibkmpdahkgfejh

Alternatively, go to Chrome Web Store and find the PassHub.net extension. Click Add to Chrome.

NOTE. For Chrome browser only: pin the PassHub extension icon to the Chrome Toolbar. Click the puzzle piece-shaped Extensions icon next to the account icon and then click the pushpin next to the PassHub extension.

Compatibility

The extension works with any Chromium-based browser: Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Vivaldi, Opera, Brave, etc.

How to use

The browser extension communicates with the PassHub tab to find the appropriate credentials. So be sure you are signed in to PasssHub.net to use the extension.

1. Autofill login form

Open the Login page of the website you want to sign in. Click the PassHub Logo in the upper right corner. The extension consults the PassHub browser tab if appropriate accounts are stored for the current page URL. There may be more than one suitable account. All will be shown in the extension pop-up.

Choose the desired account. When the login form is filled in, click the "Sign in" button on the form.

PassHub Extension popup

NOTE: Some sites use one page for the username and another for the password. Just click the Browser extension icon on every page. The extension is smart enough to substitute proper credentials.

2. Alternatively

You may click the website URL directly on the PassHub page or in the password record dialog.

PassHub Alternative way

site tab opens and the login form is automatically filled in

NOTE: Sometimes, the username/password form appears with some delay, so the last method only opens the login page but does not fill the form. Just continue by opening the extension popup as described above.

3. Payment card autofill

When the extension icon is clicked on a page with a payment card form, the extension detects specific field names and shows a list of stored cards. Just select the desired card to auto fill its data.

Due to the difference in browser architecture, Firefox and Chrome extensions are different too. Particularly, The Firefox extension is more self-contained: you need to log in directly to the extension.

On your desktop Firefox, open the link https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/passhub-net/.

Click the "Add to Firefox" button

  • select the 'Options' tab, enter the URL (or just a hostname) of the server and click the 'Change' button

The new server name appears on the extension popup window.

How to use

Go to the login page of a site with credentials stored in PassHub.net. Click on the extension icon. If you are not logged in to the PassHub extension, the QR code will be shown. Scan the code with the WWPass Key app as usual.

Extension Login

When logged in, the PassHub extension shows the list of accounts available for the active page. Click to select the desired account.

Extension advise

The extension fills in the login form with the selected credentials. You only have to press the "Sign-in" button.
