Identity Safe - set a default fill order?

I'm using the latest version of NIS (ps - please bring back the desktop gadget). I have multiple logins for several sites. I'd like to be able to set the default login for each site. Is there a way I can do this? I've searched around, but no luck. Thanks, John

Nope...

 

My workaround for this was to uncheck the Auto-fill and Auto-submit options (in the Details Box) on each of the logins for the common site...

That way when I visit the site it waits for me to pick (by clicking the "Fill Login" button on the login popup bar) and select the login that I want to use.

 

For example,  I have 3 different logins for the following site.  When I go to it, the login bar pops up and waits for my selection...

And I agree with you that a "Set as default" check-box would be a nice option for this.

 

As for Symantec's decision to eliminate the Desktop Gadget...

 

Back in July of this year Microsoft issued an official Security Advisory (#2719662) and Knowledge Base Article (#2719662) discussing the danger of Gadgets and the SideBar.

 

The links for the articles are...

Hi jamason56,

 

Thanks for your suggestion.

 

At present we auto fill the most recently used login when you browse to a page which has multiple logins stored in the same  Identity Safe Vault. So whenever you revisit the page your login credentials will be autofilled.
