    Apple should not be 'honoring the site requests not to store passwords'. That is something that should be under the user's control. This is the whole point of the keychain. I have the password to the keychain. I put my keys on it. It is supposed to then unlock things. This all used to work. If Apple wants to 'honoring the site requests not to store passwords' then they should make that a preference so that we users can turn it on and off at our need.

     

    The result of this sort of behavior is that people will use common passwords between many sites and passwords that are insecure rather than using good quality passwords. Apple is decreasing online security with this move.

    Wow, that is some good news! And I can happily report it works with all the websites I was having probelms with. Yet I never read anything about it in the update announcement. So I was still having the problem and frustrated until this post.

     

    Thanks for finding and posting about it Bernz!!
