Google Chrome is what I use. However, I still frequently switch to Safari, especially when my iPhone or iPad’s Google browser starts to behave strangely. And that obviously implies I also have to utilize Safari’s integrated password manager to save login information for those websites I frequent.
Safari Not Saving Passwords iPhone iPad Featured Alt
However, when I recently entered a website, Safari didn’t prompt me to store my username and password. Attempts to sign out and then back in were unsuccessful.
I made the decision to browse around rather than keep inputting the same password again and over. If you are experiencing the same problem, the following advice should be helpful.
Checking whether Safari is set to automatically fill in your passwords should be your first step. You won’t be prompted to save passwords on any website you sign into if it isn’t.
Furthermore, if you’ve disabled Keychain and allowed a third-party password manager to manage your credentials in its place, Safari won’t ask you to preserve your passwords. Using the procedures below, you may examine both problems.
Step 1: Open the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad, select Passwords & Accounts, and then click. Tap Autofill Passwords after that.
Step 2: Ensure that Keychain is enabled and that the switch next to auto-fill passwords is turned on.
Since different password managers can coexist alongside one another, you don’t necessarily have to disable any third-party password managers in order to enable Keychain.
Save Password with Keyboard on Screen
Apart from password auto-filling, Safari won’t ask you to keep a password for just one more reason. And that happens if you’ve previously directed the browser specifically not to perform something (by tapping the Never for This Website option).
On a Mac, only Safari is available for removing this option.
(I go into more detail on that below.) However, if you don’t have access to a Mac or want to save the password faster, you can do it by hand.
You may save your passwords in a few different ways on your own. Let’s look at the simple method first, which involves manually asking the browser to save your login data.
Step 1: After entering your login details, select Passwords from the list of options above the on-screen keyboard. Before you log in to the website, do this.
Step 2: Tap Save This Password on the screen that appears. And that’s it; the next time you try to enter the website, Safari will automatically fill in your username and password.
Save Passwords via Settings App
The Passwords & Accounts portal on an iPhone or iPad is required to use the second way of manually saving passwords. It is the best option if there are numerous websites that won’t cause an automated password-saving prompt in Safari because it allows you to save all the login information you need at once.
- Open your iOS device’s Settings app, then select Passwords & Accounts. Tap Website & App Passwords after that.
- The second step is to tap the “+” symbol in the top-right corner of the screen. Website, username, and password are required when logging into a website. After completion, tap Done.
- Do the same for any additional websites where you want to keep your passwords.
- If you have access to a Mac, you can actually erase those preferences very quickly if there are a lot of websites that you previously neglected to save the passwords for and you can’t remember which ones they are.
Step 1: Launch Safari on your Mac. After that, select Preferences from the Safari menu under the Apple menu.
Step 2: To reveal your passwords, switch to the Passwords page and enter your macOS user password.
The sites that have never been Saved displayed beneath the Password column can now be chosen and deleted. After that, when you sign in to those websites on your iPhone or iPad in the future, Safari will prompt you to save your passwords.
Websites that specifically ask Safari (as well as other browsers) not to save your passwords may occasionally appear. You have no control over that security measure because it is implemented on the server. You can still see if you can manually store the passwords, but there is no assurance that they will function when you try to auto-fill them later.
On rare occasions, websites may specifically request that Safari not save your passwords.
Again, this is pretty unusual. But it’s something to bear in mind anytime you visit that strange website where Safari will always refuse to show the request to remember your passwords.
Hopefully, you’ve now manually saved your passwords. Or you can once more let Safari handle things automatically. Remember to keep your iOS device updated if the browser is still giving you trouble.
In the Settings app, select General > Software Update to carry out that action. Newer upgrades often contain a large number of bug fixes and should permanently repair any issues with Safari.
