Using the Password Manager with PC Games and Game Launchers

Can the Norton Password Manager be used for managing passwords used with games such as The Crew 2, or by the launchers normally used to launch the games (such as Uplay for Ubisoft games) on my PC?

I'm using Windows 10 and I keep it up to date.

NPM can only be used for logins from web sites. If your logins are locally on your system NPM cannot manage them.

My issue has to do with logging into my router and local cloud. I've set up passwords for both in NPM. When chosen, NPM brings up the correct log in page and places the NPM icon in the user name and password blanks. Why can't it insert the correct user name and password? Yes, I saw the above.

When you see the NPM icon, what happens if you click on that icon? It should bring up the login options for that page.

Nothing. The mouse cursor changes to the pointing hand as if it wants to initiate some action.

Clicking on the icon when the cursor is showing the hand does not bring up anything? Try just clicking in the username text box.

EDIT

It is also possible the the login pages for the two devices do not allow auto filling by password managers. I have run into a few web sites that block my password manager's use.

I noticed today that if I open the log in page for my cloud before logging into NPM and click on the NPM icon, it asks me to open NPM. Once open, there is no response to clicking on the NPM icon.

I have found pages that do not allow use of password managers.  My experience is they also do not allow copy and paste. My two pages do allow copy and past.

As a test, maybe set up the password manager in your browser and add logins for the two devices. Then test to see if they will fill in the logins for your devices. 

If that also fails, I would suggest contacting the support contacts for the router and cloud device to see if they can shed any light on the use of password managers. As they are supposed to be secure devices, they may not allow password manager access, as it can reduce the security of the devices if someone manages to access your computer while you go to get a coffee.

What devices are you trying to log into?
