What’s the problem?
If you’ve ever found yourself in the frustrating position of having your browser not remember your passwords, you’re not alone. Many people have experienced this issue at one time or another, and it can be a real pain.
There are a few different things that can cause this problem, and it can be tough to figure out what’s going on. In this article, we’ll take a look at a few of the most common causes of this issue and how to fix them.
One of the most common causes of this issue is that your browser’s settings are not configured to remember passwords. If you’ve never changed these settings before, they may be set to not remember passwords by default. To fix this, you’ll just need to change your settings to allow your browser to remember passwords.
Another common cause of this issue is that you’re using a shared computer or browser and someone else has configured the browser not to remember passwords. If this is the case, you’ll need to ask the person who set up the browser to change the settings so that it will remember passwords.
Finally, another possibility is that there’s a problem with the website itself. If the website you’re trying to log in to has issues with its password management, it may not be able to save your password properly. In this case, you’ll need to contact the website’s customer support to see if they can help you fix the issue.
How to fix it in Chrome
If you’re having trouble getting Chrome to remember your passwords, there are a few things you can try:
First, make sure that you’ve enabled the “Save passwords” setting in Chrome. You can find this setting by going to Chrome’s settings menu (in the top-right corner of the browser) and selecting “Show advanced settings.” Under the “Passwords and forms” section, look for the “Offer to save your web passwords” checkbox and make sure it’s checked.
If that doesn’t do the trick, try clearing your Chrome cookies and cache. This can be done by going to Chrome’s settings menu and selecting “Clear browsing data.” Make sure to check the boxes for “Cookies and other site data” and “Cached images and files,” then click “Clear browsing data.”
If you’re still having trouble, there may be a problem with the website you’re trying to login to. Make sure that the website’s URL begins with “https://” (rather than just “http://”), as this indicates that the site is using a secure connection. If the site doesn’t use a secure connection, Chrome will not save your password for it.
How to fix it in Firefox
If you’re using Firefox and you find that your browser isn’t remembering your passwords, there are a few things you can do to try and fix the issue.
First, check to see if you have the “Remember passwords for sites” option enabled in your Firefox settings. If you don’t, then enabling this option may fix the problem.
If that doesn’t work, you can try creating a new profile in Firefox. Sometimes, passwords can become corrupted in your profile, so creating a new one may fix the issue.
If you’re still having trouble, you can try using a third-party password manager like LastPass or 1Password. These tools can help you manage your passwords and can often times be more reliable than the built-in password manager in Firefox.
How to fix it in Safari
If you’re using Safari and you find that your browser isn’t remembering your passwords, there are a few things you can do to try and fix the problem.
First, check to see if you have any extensions or plugins installed that could be interfering with Safari’s password manager. If you do have any extensions or plugins installed, try disabling them one at a time to see if that fixes the problem.
If you don’t have any extensions or plugins installed, or if disabling them doesn’t fix the problem, the next thing to try is clearing Safari’s cache and cookies. This can be done by going to Safari’s Preferences and selecting the “Privacy” tab. From there, you can click the “Remove All Website Data” button.
If neither of those solutions works, the next thing to try is resetting Safari. This can be done by going to Safari’s Preferences and selecting the “Advanced” tab. From there, you can check the “Show Develop menu in menu bar” box and then select “Reset Safari” from the Develop menu.
Hopefully one of those solutions will fix the problem and Safari will start remembering your passwords again.
How to fix it in Edge/IE
If you’re using Microsoft Edge or Internet Explorer and having trouble getting your passwords to save, there are a few things you can try.
First, make sure that you’ve selected the option to save passwords in your browser’s settings. In Edge, this option is under the Privacy & Security section; in IE, it’s under the Security tab.
If that option is already enabled and you’re still having trouble, try deleting your browser’s cookies and cache. This can sometimes help to reset things and get your browser to start saving passwords again.
If you’re still having trouble after clearing your cookies and cache, you may need to reset your browser entirely. This can be done by deleting your browser’s history and then reinstalling the browser.
Hopefully one of these solutions will help to get your passwords saving again in Microsoft Edge or Internet Explorer!
