How to stop windows auto completing user name/pass

  Saali Chuud 00:25 28 Apr 2005

Usually when you first access a site where there is a user name and password involved, you enter the user name and password, windows offers to remember it for you and afterwards when you visit the site again, you just breeze through as your user name and password is already filled and all you do is confirm and click and so on.

Now having asked windows to remember the user name and password, you later decide it was a bad idea and you don't want windows to auto fill your user name and password, how do you stop it so it is not auto inserted but manually entered by you each time

If you're using Internet Explorer, then select Tools> Internet Options, and click Delete Cookies.

This will remove all auto-logins to all websites.

If you just want to remove an auto-login for a particular site, then select Tools> Internet Options, and click Delete Files, then click Settings and select View Files.

You'll have to track down the cookie for the particular site and delete it.

In XP open control panel > Internet Options > Advanced. Then untick 'Use4 inline autocomplete'.

That should sort things for you.

I should say that it will disable all autocomplete for all sites.

Another thing you may want to do is to go to 'Internet options / content tab / AutoComplete button'. Then deselect the "User names and passwords on forms" tick box. Not forgetting to clear the AutoComplete history to get rid of existing entries.
