I have Mountain Line with Safari 6.0.2. I used to open Facebook, Youtube, Twitter etc. and everytime I select "Stay signed in" "Remember my password" etc. but it doesn't save my passwords and everytime I have to sign in again. I never sign out from these websites but when I open it next time, it requires username & password.


Does anybody know the problem & solution, plz help.

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), Core i7, 8GB RAM

    1. Set Your Passwords Preferences


    Open up your Safari Web browser and choose 'Preferences' from the Safari pull down menu


    Click on the heading 'AutoFill.'




    Click on the box next to 'User Names and Passwords.'


    Close the 'Preferences' window.


    Save Your Passwords



    Go to a Web page that requires a password and enter in your chosen password. Safari will then ask if you would like to save this password.


    Click on the button 'Yes' in order to save the password.


    Complete steps 1 and 2 for any other passwords that you want Safari to remember.


    Manage Your Passwords



    Go to the 'AutoFill' section in the Safari Preferences window.


    Click on the 'Edit' button to the right of where it says 'User Names and Passwords.' This will bring up a window displaying all of the passwords and usernames that you have authorized Safari to save.



    Click on a password listing and push the 'Remove' button in order to delete the password from Safari's memory.


    Choose 'Remove All' in order to delete all of the saved passwords.

    I have had the same problem.


    I checked all my settings and they are correct.


    Have had to reset safari and then it started saving my passwords!


    My dad had same problem with passwords not saving. He reset as well and now it all works.


    Does Safari have a bug where passwords are not saved?

    What do you mean by "reset safari"? I've tried like, double tapping the home button and clicking the minus on the safari app, but it still doesn't save my passwords. I'm on iOS 6.1.3 any suggestions?

    For the iOS users:

    You need to turn on autofill in Settings>Safari>Autofill

    You will also need to turn off "Private Browsing".
