    I do not like having web sites remember my password. On this forum, the "remember password" box is always checked when I start to log in. I have to uncheck it, every time.

    Is there a way to have it remember the unchecked setting? I have looked all through the User CP and tried to search this forum, but I didn't find anythig.

    Thanks,
    Tim

    At quick glance, I don't think that is an available option. However, the other thing you could do is use a cookie manager to not save the cookie permanantly, which is what that checked option depends upon to work.

    With Internet Explorer opened:

    Go to Tools | Internet Options

    Click the "Content" Tab

    Click the "AutoComplete" Button

    Click the "Clear Forms" and "Clear Passwords" Buttons

    Then, uncheck the "User names and passwords on forms" check-box at the top.

    Let us know if that helps :D

    Actually, I think they were talking about the vBulletin "Remember Me" check box, which is checked by default. (see image) :doubt:

    Well,
    If he is talking about all websites, then by following the steps I posted above, it will clear any boxes that have been checked on any website :D

    LowWaterMark is correct. This is the only website I have to do this on. So, I was hoping I could change the site preferences, not my browser preferences. Also, I almost always use Firefox.

    Thanks,

    Oh Ok,
    Well, sorry I couldn't be of more help. LowWaterMark knows what he's talking about :)

    Hope you get the solution you've been seeking.

    Tim,

    I feel the same way. There is no way to turn this option off as far as I know. I just log out each time, this clears the board cookies. Next visit I have to log in again.
