Question from Jennifer: I have a question about pop-ups asking if I want to save the password when I log in to a website.
I never say Yes and want to disable those pop-ups. How do I disable them?
I use both Firefox and Chrome.
Rick’s answer: I don’t blame you for turning down your browsers’ offers to save your passwords, Jennifer.
I never use password managers of any kind because they are quite dangerous.
Luckily, you can easily disable those pop-ups offering to save your passwords. Just follow the instructions below for each browser.
1 – Click on your Google profile picture icon in the top-right corner of the Chrome window.
2 – Click the Passwords icon (it looks like a key).
3 – Toggle the “Offer to save passwords” setting to Off.
1 – Click the Application Menu icon in the top-right corner of the Firefox window (it looks like three horizontal lines).
2 – Click Settings.
3 – In the left-hand column, click Privacy & Security.
4 – Scroll down to the “Logins and Passwords” section and uncheck the box beside “Ask to save logins and passwords for websites”.
That’s all there is to it. Your browsers should no longer ask to store the passwords for the websites you visit.
I hope this helps, Jennifer. Good luck!
