How do I set my browser to remember passwords?

To set your browser to remember passwords, you first need to go into the settings of your browser and look for the option that says: ‘Remember passwords’ or ‘Save passwords’. Once you have checked this box, your browser will begin storing any passwords that you enter onto websites. Most browsers also give you the option to save more than 2000 words.

If you wish to decide which passwords are stored, and which are not, most browsers also provide a feature which allows you to whitelist specific password fields. To enable this feature, you will have to look in the browser settings and check the box that says, ‘Allow sites to ask to save passwords’. Once enabled, any website that you enter a password on will ask if you want to save it. Allowing you to choose which passwords are remembered and which are not.

It is important to note that setting your browser to remember passwords does come with some risk. As it stores your password for potentially years, anyone who has access to your computer can gain access to your passwords. It is therefore recommended that you store the passwords for the most important websites separately and safely.
