How to Turn On or Off to Store your Passwords for Websites in Internet Explorer 11 (IE11)
When you visit a website that requires you to sign in to your account—like an email, banking, or shopping site—Internet Explorer will ask if you want your user name and password remembered. The next time you visit the site and start entering your user name, Internet Explorer will finish filling in your account info.
This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off having Internet Explorer 11 (IE11) to store your passwords for websites in Windows 7. Windows 8.1. and Windows 10 .
- In Windows 8.1 and Windows RT 8.1. this is applied to both the modern and desktop IE11.
- If you're using a public PC, Internet Explorer will ask if you want to save passwords and
user names. You might not want to save your personal sign–in info on public computers.
- Your account info is encrypted and stored on your PC—it isn't shared between user accounts and other apps on the PC can't read the passwords. But, if you sign in to a different PC with your Microsoft account . you'll be able to sign in to sites with your saved account info in Internet Explorer because this "Web Browser" info is synced across devices.
- When you save sign–in info for a site that shares a domain with an app you've downloaded from the Windows Store in Windows 8.1, Windows will sign in to that app automatically.
