Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) about the Master Password of Password Manager
This article answers frequently asked questions about the Master Password of your Trend Micro Password Manager.
Master Password is a key that you register during the first activation of your Password Manager. It is the only password you need to remember when using Password Manager. You use it every time you open the Password Manager console.
No, the Master Password is not the same as your Trend Micro MyAccount password. The Master Password is used in opening or unlocking your Password Manager.
Aside from using the Master Password, you can use the fingerprint authentication feature of your mobile device. This feature is available on iOS (iOS 9 or above) and Android (version 6.0 or above) devices with fingerprint scanners.
Since your Master Password contains your private information, Trend Micro will not be able to retrieve your Master Password nor provide you a temporary password. You need to reset your account to create a new Master Password. For instructions on how to reset your Master Password, refer to this Knowledge Base article: Resetting the Master Password of Trend Micro Password Manager.
