The website isn’t autofilling my password
Did you click “Save my Password” and it’s now not saved? This is actually not done by the website, but by the browser you’re using- typically Safari, Chrome, mobile browsers, or password managers will save these passwords for you and autofill them for you when you return back to the website. To make sure that passwords are saved:
By default, Chrome offers to save your password. You can turn this option off or on at any time.
- On your computer, open Chrome.
- At the top right, click Profile Passwords

Now that you’ve configured Firefox to remember passwords, try logging in to the site again. When you enter the password, Firefox should ask to save it. To accept, click Save.
For Safari –
- Go to Safari > Preferences
- Select AutoFill
- Make sure “User names and passwords” is selected.
If your Mac or Apple keyboard has Touch ID, and you want to use Touch ID to fill in user names and passwords, make sure you select Password AutoFill in the Touch ID pane of System Preferences.
