User and Passwords gone

Recommended Posts

When I run cleaner, I always lose my saved User Name and Passwords that I saved on websites that I frequent.  What should I click to avoid this removal.  Where are user names stored (Temporary Internet Files??)

Are you using Easy Clean or Custom Clean?

Easy Clean should leave your username/passwords alone.

Custom Clean will remove them if it's set to do so; to stop it removing them do the following -

For each browser where you want the details saving uncheck "Saved Passwords", and you may also need to uncheck "Saved Form Information".

That's because some websites save your login information as a form rather than just a name/password.

This shows them unticked for the Firefox browser:

Also bear in mind that some websites, especially those dealing with money, paying bill, etc. may not allow the password to be auto-entered by your browser.
As a security measure on those sites you have to type your details in each time.
