How to make your browser stop asking you if you should save your passwords

Browsers like to be useful. They know that, in a PC, they are your main means of communication with the Internet : with them you can access your favorite news pages, you can buy online, access your social networks and countless other things.

Precisely because of that desire to be useful in your day to day offer to keep your passwords, so you do not have to remember them. For that reason, every time you log on to a website and enter the password, the browser will ask you if you should remember it or not. This behavior can be annoying, so we’ll show you how to disable it.

Before continuing, it is worth commenting that if what you are looking for is a way to have your passwords saved and in an easily accessible place, then you can try with password managers, but they are not infallible either.

Google Chrome

To prevent Chrome from asking if you should save your passwords, go to the settings menu through the button on the top right of the screen and, once there, click Show advanced settings. Once there, move the screen down to the section Passwords and forms.

When you have located it, uncheck the option Ask if you want to save your web passwords.

In the mobile version of Chrome, go to the options menu and Settings . There you will see the option Save passwords. If it is on Yes, click on it to deactivate it.

Mozilla Firefox

If you use Firefox and do not want the browser to remember your passwords or ask you if you should do so, then go to the menu at the top right of the screen and select Options. A new tab will open with all Firefox settings distributed in several sections. The one that interests us is Security.

Click on it and, where it says Start of session, uncheck Remember site credentials.

In the mobile version of Firefox, go to the browser menu and select Settings. There, enter Privacy and scroll until you see the section Start of session. There deactivates Remember credentials.


If on the other hand you are a Vivaldi user, go to the bottom left of the screen and press the button to show the side panel. When it opens, click on the cogwheel to show the options. A new window will appear with all the configuration options of Vivaldi distributed in sections. In this case, we go to Privacy.

We scroll through the screen until we see the Passwords option. There we uncheck Save passwords from web pages.


To deactivate password saving in Opera, click opera://settingson the navigation bar. In the tab that you have active, the settings will open. We are interested in the Privacy and security section .

Click on it and look for the section Passwords. There we uncheck the option Ask if passwords of websites are saved. Interestingly, in the mobile version we have not found how to disable the saving of passwords, only their deletion when deleting the navigation data.

Microsoft Edge

If you use Microsoft Edge as your daily browser, go to the menu at the top right of the screen. Scroll down until you see the View advanced settings button. Press it to show the rest of the settings.
