Using Password History

Main WIndow Detail

Password history details are accessed by clicking History tab at the top of the entry detail display. Return to the detail display by clicking Details tab

If a historical password is selected, using the Password button button (by clicking or dragging) will use the selected password (while the historical password remains in view).

If Custom is selected at the base of the password history display, a custom password history setting can be applied to this entry only.

Note that if this value is reduced below the number of currently saved previous passwords, the oldest passwords will be discarded. The Clear button button can also be used to remove all saved passwords.

As with any changes to a Samuraisafe entry, you need to click Save button for the changes to be made permanent.

SamuraiSafe tracks the last time the entry fields are changed, and the last time the password is changed — these are displayed at the bottom of the detail drawer history display.
