But the advantage is that this service will not expired unlike the paid version. The paid version is available for US $14.95 for one year access. For extended period you need to pay more.

First download and install Direct Pass. You can use free service or buy. Log in with your Trend Micro A/c or create new one when prompts using your email account. If you prefer to buy, don’t forget to enter the activation key when prompts. Otherwise skip the step by clicking Start Now.
The next step is very important one. You need to create a master password to control or manage your all other passwords. So use an extra secure password for this purpose. You need to remember this password. There is no recovery option for your master password. If you forgot your master password means you lost all your data within Direct Pass. So be careful here.
Once you successfully completed the setup restart your browser. Direct Pass has already installed on your installed browsers. Sign in to your any of the online account. Direct Pass will request your permission to Save the password. Use the “Lock” Feature to opt out of the service and “Sync” Option to Sync your data in an encrypted form on a secure cloud storage.
