2. Next, open Google Chrome web browser and click the GateKeeper Password Manager Chrome extension icon in the upper right corner.

3. Afterwards, click + Add Password and type in the EMR’s website URL address, username, and password.

If you’re logging into the EMR website for the first time while connected to the extension, you will see a notification on the top right asking whether you’d like to save those credentials. Click Save to save it to your GateKeeper password manager.
