From your Safari menu bar top of your screen click Safari > Preferences then select the Autofill tab.
Deselect: User names and passwords.
Quit then relaunch Safari for changes to take affect.

Thanks - not very obvious I have to say. Surely you should be able to keep autofill but disable password collection.

I agree - this isn't sensible, and fairly unhelpful. I use 1Password to manage my passwords, but I still need autofill sometimes.

Sensible would be to have it as a checkbox on the Passwords section of the preferences window.

Same issue - for the most part I don't want Safari to save userId's or passwords. So the brute force will work. I would prefer the ability to specify just the VERY FEW sights I'd like saved. That is "Save ONLY these passwords"
Any chance the is a way to do thiw with Mountian Lion?

you don't need to autofill at all. It's just being lazy and it opens you up to hackers stealing your information. Only a neophite would have autofill on
