How to Turn On or Off Remember Passwords for Sites in Firefox

information   Information
The Firefox Password Manager securely stores the usernames and passwords you use to access websites and then automatically fills them in for you the next time you visit.

When you're using a public or shared PC, you may wish to turn off to remember passwords in Firefox for better security.

This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off having Firefox to remember usernames and passwords for websites in Windows.

In the Remember Password prompt:
  • To have Firefox remember your username and password
    • When you sign in to a website for the first time, click/tap on Remember Password. The next time you visit the website, Firefox will automatically enter your username and password for you.
    • If you've stored the wrong username or password, just type the right one into the website and Firefox will prompt you to save it. To save the new username and password, click/tap Update.
  • To tell Firefox to never remember usernames and passwords for the current website
    • Click/tap the drop-down menu and select Never Remember Password for This Site. In the future, when you log in to the website you won't be prompted to save the username and password.
    • If you later change your mind and would like Firefox to ask you to save usernames and passwords for this site, you'll need to remove it from the exceptions list using the Security and passwords setting.
  • To skip saving your username and password this time,
    • Click/tap the drop-down menu and select Not Now. You'll be prompted to save your username and password the next time you visit the site.

Firefox can protect sensitive information such as saved passwords and certificates by encrypting them using a master password. After you have created a master password, it needs to be entered the first time you remember a new password or remove passwords and each time you show your saved passwords of sites, for each Firefox session.
