What can I say...Two in distress make sorrow less! 😄
Btw, I tried nearly everithing during the last hours...I Installed every version of HP simple pass I found on the web
I tried to combine those versions with different versions of verisign drivers and Chrome Addons.
No risults, but I'm glad I found that topic, so i can finally stop my weird experiments! 😄
I think we just need to wait a solution from Authentec, cause the latest version of Chrome is simply not suitable for that software. 😛

It could be useful to verify the compatibility of Simple Pass with other versions, expecially recent dev and beta versions.
(i have atm Hp Simple Pass V 184.108.40.206, windows 7 64)

Cloffy's answer does work; however, it appears some of his procedures were are not shown. I did "disconnect" from the Internet to do the Chrome 28 install and the changes Cloffy recommended. Once his changes were made, I reconnected to the Internet and everything worked great. The only reason for the disconnect is to give you time to find the sections in the about:plugins for Chrome. If you don't disconnect, Chrome will immediately begin updating to the latest Chrome version and you won't be able to stop it. Below is the way I did it and it worked for me.
1st - Backup your bookmarks
2nd - Uninstall Chrome - do not check the box to remove your bookmarks
3rd - Download Chrome 28 from link in Cloffy's message
4th - Disconnect from the Internet
- Install Chrome using your downloaded installation file
- Open Chrome open a new tab
- In that new tab, type " about:plugins " (No quotes)
Scroll down and
- CHECK "Always Allow" HP SimplePass
- DISABLE "Google Update"
- Close the Chrome Browser
- Open Chrome > open a new Tab > type "about:plugins"
- Reconnect to the Internet
- Open Chrome Browser
- Check your version and make sure that it is locked on your installed version (update is disabled) use the Toolbar (Triple Bars) and check about "About Google Chrome"
- Import your bookmarks, if necessary
- Open a tab containing a SimplePass login and test

I've also had this issue a work around (until an update to simple pass is released) is to use the Old Apps website to reinstall an older version of Google chrome.
1. Download a older copy of chrome from the old apps website ( I went for 28.0.1500.95)
2. (optional step) Sign into chrome with a google account/ register for a new one, to do this click the 3 lines (settings icon) and 'click sign in', go to advance sync setting and sync everything ** when you install the older version of chrome you will be able to restore all most of your data by signing in ... woo **
3. Unistall Chrome from programs and features
4. Install older version of Chrome
5. depending on whether you completed step 2 you may have to install the extension again chrome.

I was able to get it to work by restoring to a point 2 days ago using control panel. This has happened twice for me about 10 days apart. Rather than jumping through all kinds of hoops and settings the restore process may be easier. Your mileage may vary and all other standard disclaimer stuff.

TomRoberts, your adds to my suggestions are accurate. That is what happened to me, it worked like a charm!
Btw, if you aren't signed in, remember at least to back up your bookmarks.
Another thing: i noticed I could not install a previous version of Chrome before uninstalling the current: so if the installer doesn't work, maybe you forget to uninstall the previous version!

What am I missing? I typed in 'about plugins' and all I get is this...
EDIT: So I figured out I needed to put a colon in there, I've checked always allow for simple pass but I see nothing about disabling updating
