    Remember Login
    Hey guys,

    You know how, on a computer, your browser offers you to save your login info so that next time you go on that specific website you will be automatically logged in?

    It is something that I couldn't do on my iPhone, how does that work with the iPad? Is there a way for the iPad to remember your login? It's kinda annoying to have to reenter the login and PW every time I wanna visit a website. Like this forum!

    Many thanks.

    Vinny.

    If you'd put the check mark in that little 'Remember Me' box next to the login you wouldn't have to do that on this forum. The only time I have to log back in here is after I do my typical monthly or so cleaning.

    Safari on the iPad offers to remember your passwords so that you don't need to type them in on your next visit. It auto fills the log in form if you elect to have it remember them. Just off hand, I believe I've only signed in once to Amazon in the last week, and I probably visit there almost every day. Only had to sign in to Netflix twice so far.

    I do have 1Password also. On the iPad you can go from the browser to 1Password to copy your password and then back to the browser to paste it in.

    1Password also has a shortcut to your logins, where you just click the site you want, it then opens Safari, takes you to the site and auto fills the log in for you. Well worth the current asking price of $7 for any one that has 1Password on their Mac already.

    Mine seems to remember most of my logins just fine, but for some reason, it keeps forgetting my Facebook login about once every day or so, and I go to the site multiple times a day.

    It's pretty annoying, but it must be a Facebook thing since my iPad hasn't lost my login to this site since the first time I logged in last Saturday.

    Typing in passwords can be hard work. I use well over 300 sites that require a log in. There is no password duplication - period - and very little username duplication. There is no way to remember all of them. Even if there were, why? I have enough garbage to remember without having to remember a bunch of random characters.

    I think Tapa is getting his revenge for another post of his

    Yes, my friend, retyping your password every time you go on Facebook, Forums, Bank websites and whatnot is a pain in the butt.

    And I was worried about that because on my iPhone, even tho I have different pages opened at the same time, when I switch back and forth it reloads the page and therefore ask me to login again...

    On my iPhone I just went to settings / safari and turned "auto fill " on and it does it for me. I believe this became a feature in 3.0 if I remember correctly.
