• Why won't RememBear sync?

    Sync is only available for RememBear Premium accounts. If you have a free RememBear account, you'll need to upgrade to a RememBear Premium subscription to enable syncing of your items across multiple devices. To read more about upgrading click here

    That said, there are a few reasons that might cause your items not to sync.

    First Steps:

    1. Make sure that you're running the most recent version of RememBear across your devices. You can download it here.

    2. Check our Twitter page to see if we're currently performing any scheduled maintenance.

    3. Make sure that you have an active Internet connection. Your Bear will need this to sync.

    If your Bear is still having issues syncing, check out the following:

    If RememBear isn’t syncing, it may be that there is a Third-Party Application on your device that is interfering (eg. Anti-virus, firewall, security applications, blocked by a corporate or public network). We recommend disabling any applications you think may interfere with RememBear and try syncing again.

    If you're still finding that RememBear is not syncing as it should, try forcing a sync. Here’s how:


    RememBear for Windows and MacOS is designed to sync automatically every 10 minutes. If you’d like to force RememBear to sync, hold your mouse over the "Up to Date" status. You should see "Sync Now" appear. Click this to force your bear to sync.


    RememBear for Android and iOS should sync each time you open the app. If it doesn’t, you can force-sync RememBear by pulling down on your list of items. This should prompt your bear to sync up!

    If you’re still having issues, or are finding that your bear is having trouble syncing, feel free to reach out to our friendly support bears here.

  • Why do I need the full desktop application?

    RememBear offers a browser extension for Chrome, Firefox and Safari web browsers.

    The extension does not function as standalone app and will still require you install the full desktop application. Currently, we provide desktop applications for macOS and Windows. We do not support Chrome OS or Linux and as a result the extension will not function on these operating systems.

    Why don't we just make a standalone extension? One of the key focuses of RememBear is security. When we created RememBear we wanted to make sure you and only you have access to the sensitive information you store in your Bear. As a result of some of these core security related decisions, it's not currently possible to create a standalone extension that adheres to these standards. You can learn more about how RememBear was designed in this blog post.

  • Why don’t my browser codes match?

    There are a few reasons why your browser codes might not match.

    It’s possible that you have the RememBear browser extension installed in more than one browser. The code you’re seeing might actually be referring to one of the other extensions. If this is the case, we recommend that you close all other browsers, open the browser you’re trying to use RememBear with, and try again.

    If you’re still not able to get your RememBear codes to match, we recommend that you remove the RememBear browser extension entirely, quit the browser and restart it and finally re-add the RememBear extension. For information on how to do so, click here.

    If you’re still having trouble getting your codes to match, get in touch with our support bears here  so that we can look into it.

  • Why isn't RememBear autofilling my passwords?

    Autofill not working on any website:

    Make sure that you have the autofill function enabled on your device.

    On iOS version 11 and below, open Safari browser > select the ‘share’ button (square with an arrow coming out the top) > Scroll to the right until you see a button called 'More', tap it > From the list locate 'RememBear' and toggle it on

    On iOS version 12 and above you can use Apple's auto-fill mechanism. To enable it open iOS settings > Locate 'Passwords & Accounts' > 'Auto-fill Passwords' > Make sure 'AutoFill Passwords' is toggled on and from the list make sure 'RememBear' is checked.


    Make sure that you have the autofill function enabled on your device. You should have set this up when you downloaded the app, but if you skipped this step during setup, simply open your RememBear app, open the Menu > Settings > RememBear Autofill > Go to Settings and follow the instructions to enable autofill.

    If you're already seeing the RememBear auto-fill bubble when trying to log in to a site, but it's only allowing you to manually copy/paste the information then it's likely you're using an unsupported browser. On Android versions 7 and lower we support Chrome browser. On Android 8 and higher we support Chrome, Firefox Focus, Opera, Brave, Microsoft Edge, and DuckDuckGo


    Autofill not working on certain sites:

    It's possible that the RememBear application might not be detecting your username or password fields correctly. If this is the case, you can report the affected site or application directly via the RememBear app.

    Windows and macOS (via the browser extension): 

    With your browser window open, navigate to the webpage where you’re having problems. Once there, select the RememBear extension icon, select the gear icon in the bottom right corner and select Report broken autofill. The URL field will already be populated, but you can also add some extra info about the problem if you think it will help us. When you’re done, select Send to send the report.

    Please note: We do not respond directly to you when you submit autofill reports. However, the RememBear team continuously reviews reports and works on fixing site specific issues. If you need to contact us, you can get in touch with one of our friendly Support Bears. In the interim, you should be able to copy and paste your passwords manually from the RememBear application into the site or app where you're currently trying to login.

  • Why are some of my items greyed out?

    Greyed out items indicate that the item was created on a different device and is not currently available on the current device. This will occur if you’re using a RememBear Free account. With RememBear Free, items are only available on the device where they were originally created. You can continue to use RememBear Free for as long as you want. However, you’ll need RememBear Premium to sync all of your items across multiple devices.

    If you’d like access to your items across all of your devices (along with a bunch of other neat features), you'll need to upgrade to RememBear Premium.

  • Can I use RememBear when I’m offline?

    Absolutely. When you’re offline you’ll still have access to your passwords and other information. You can also still create and edit existing items. Once an internet connection becomes available, RememBear will make sure your changes are synced to the rest of your devices.
