Frequently Asked Questions: What does the 'Install Password Manager' option on checklists do?

  • Updated

When Creating a Checklist, you will notice the Install password manager setting under the Install Vanta Agent component.


Does this prompt employees to download the selected password manager during onboarding? 

  • Not currently, but we have heard your feedback! Our product team are working to improve the password manager-employee task, Including adding Password manager tasks to the employee onboarding page. 

What does enabling this setting do?

  • When enabled, any employees who do not pass the requirement for having a PW manager will be emailed a reminder. The reminder email includes a link to download the preferred password manager selected in the checklist settings. 


Will the Vanta agent only check for the selected password manager? 

Nope! As long as the Vanta agent can detect one of the supported password managers listed here, then test should pass without issue. 

How do I know which employees don't have a Password Manager installed?

  • Once the Vanta Agent has been installed on your employee's computers, a list will populate on the Computers page. Each row includes information about each of your employee's computers. Each user will have a check mark or an X for each security measure column.
