Safari Does Not Remember The Username Or Passwords For Sites
Aug 1, 2010
I have two iWeb password protected websites for my Daughters, however when I try to log into them from my iPad, Safari does not remember the username or passwords for either of the sites. When I log into these sites from my iMac, I have no such problems with Safari. Anyone have any ideas how to resolve this ?.
What's the trick to getting the iPad to retain sign in information? I have it turned on in safari. Been struggling with this since last Friday. It is finally keeping my Facebook sign in. I belong to Napp...and it might be retaining that one right now, but when I click on a link to open another page on that same site, it wants me to log in again(I have it set to open a new tab). It won't retain the sign in for this site nor a few of my other regular ones. I shut it off at night. I've toggled on and off.
I just got my iPad a few days ago, and let me say it is too cool! I love it already. Anyway, one minor frustration is whenever I type in my email address (as a username for certain sites, etc.) the autofill always inserts the wrong name. My email ends in comcast.net, but when I type this in, the iPad forces it to com cast.net (it puts a space between m and c. How do I fix this?
I have a problem on my iPad in Safari. I have to use my school web page a lot and it requires a password login. When I first signed in I accidentaly pressed 'no' for saving password on this page. How can I repair this now?
I use a product called "Roboform" on my PC. It's an "add-on" that stores and auto-fills all my usernames and passwords to websites that require a logon. Roboform also generates random passwords. It also stores my name, address, phone numbers, email address, credit and debit card information (identity) that allows me to instantly and completely fill out most internet order forms. I've used this product for years and I find the features are huge time savers. I have about 50 logons and my passwords are as complex as each site will allow. This is good and bad. It's bad if I need to logon to one of these sites when I'm on my iPad.
On my iPad, in Settings, Safari, I have AutoFill turned on, Use Contact Info and Names and Passwords turned on. The functionality on my iPad doesn't approach what I am used to on my PC. I'm hoping that someone has found a robust, elegant solution to managing logon information and the other functionality I've described.
PS - Roboform does have a free iPhone app, it's not bad but it won't open webpages in Safari (naturally, due to Apple's restriction) and it doesn't have the form-filling feature that is SO convenient when establishing an account and doing business on the web.
Unless I missed something, it appears that the browser doesn't offer to save user name, passwords, etc., right?I know the individual web sites can keep you logged in or remember the user name, but unless a site has that feature, user has to type the information. Am I missing something?

When I tried to login to via Safari on my iPad 2, I accidentally selected ‘No’ while prompted to remember password. Is there any setting on iPad 2 which enables Safari to remember password automatically?
I have set safari to remember passwords but every time I open up sites such as this one, I keep having to enter my username and password every time as it's not remembering it. My username and password should auto populate but it doesn't.
Safari on our IPad3 is not remembering the username and password. Have gone into settings > safari > autofill > n&p and have it turned on. Went to a site and put in my username and password and got into the site. logged out and came back to the site and had to put in the info again. Toggled the names and passwords off and on a few times, rebooted the ipad both with the N&P on and off, deleted cookies and cleared settings a number of times. It seems like a setting is missing. What else to try?
I have the iPad 2, iOS 5.1.1 When I go to various web pages, using Safari, that require my username and password, and I enter them correctly, and hit submit or enter, the page takes me back to the sign-in page, again and again and again and... This occurs on all web pages that require usernames and passwords, which I have tried about 6 different sites. On my settings for Safari, the Remember names and passwords is on.
I recently got a new iPad and have been saving passwords for some of the websites that I visit. Recently I visited website, but instead of clicking the yes save this password for this website button, I accidentally clicked the never for this website button. How do I turn on autosaving the password for that website now that I have hippie never same for this website button?
When I use my iPad Safari will not keep me logged in to websites that require a username/password. I have to log in every time I use Facebook, Pinterest, etc. For example, I can be browsing Pinterest for a few minutes, go to the home screen or another app, then return to pinterest and it will require me to login again. I usually login via Facebook, and it forget that login info too. It's as if Safari forgets my username/password every time I stop using it, even if it's just for a few minutes. This does not happen when I use my iPhone, and it is synced to my iPad. How can I fix this?
I've been considering getting an iPad, and the new iPad looks really awesome. The one thing that I am very concerned about, however, is fitting the iPad's browser into my already-existing ecosystem. That is to say, I use Firefox on my Mac and have hundreds of website passwords saved in its password store. I don't even remember my passwords half the time for the various sites that I use. How can I sync the usernames/passwords between the two devices? I'd also like to be able to sync my bookmarks if possible. I use Firefox Sync to keep my various computers in sync, but of course this will not work with the iPad.
I was about to get on a plane. Knew there would be no network for 8 hours. Had some articles on web pages that I wanted to read. So I loaded each article into a separate window inside iPad Safari. All the text was loaded and ready to read. Then once the plane took off, I couldn't read the pages. When I switched to a page Safari tried to refresh the page, and said it couldn't because it wasn't connected to the internet.Why couldn't it remember the text that is in each of its 9 windows, so they can be read while not connected to the network? I understand why it can't navigate to new pages, but why can't it remember pages that are already loaded?
We have a few mobile sites that we want to have on the home page for thousands of iPad users. These sites are password protected and we don't want to have to disseminate the credentials to everyone for each of these sites (many are students). Is there any way we can use configurator or some other utility to create a configuration profile that will have the sites on the home page as well as the saved login credentials for each site? The sites all have generic usernames and passwords, but there are a few of them, and we don't want users to have to hassle with logging on.
I just received an IPAD. My main purpose is to be able to access my Realtor Mls Sites for business. They are only compatable with Internet Explorer not Safari. Does anyone know of an APP that may help me.
Today i removed all the website data on my ipad settings and now everytime i visit a site i have to log in each time. Is there anyway to keep me logged in again? This happens on my ipad 2 and iphone 4.
I recently acquired an iPad and basically I'm pretty happy. But for now I can't figure out how to get everything work as I wish.
Maybe you will be able to help a bit on these few questions: How to get Safari remember an http login/password (not html form one) ? How to get Safari or any other browser launch a Web application, like the "Home Screen link" on Safari, but as a unique fullscreen app ? Do you know any nice app to listen to music which is on a NAS server (Samba) ? I just found a very nice one for videos: Buzz Player, but still nothing for music.
Another annoying thing is that I don't understand how works the file system on iPad: is there only this folder called "My files" where I can put my stuff ? Why even in this folder I can't create any subfolder (I tried with FileBrowser, another great app). As I don't use iTunes and don't want to synchronize everything, is there a solution to send easily pictures from computer to the Photo app on iPad ? Or maybe is there any other nice application to open pictures?
Is there any way to get bookmarks synchronized between iPad and Firefox ? And finally, even if I doubt it, is there any solution to get accounts on iPad like on any computer. It would be intersting in order to use Mail app for instance (about this: it is surprising that restrictions in iOs options do not apply to Mail app).
Is there a way to prevent Safari from zooming in on websites to fit the screen when you load them? I could see why this was necessary on the older iPads, but now that the retina display is even better than the resolution of most laptops and desktops, I think it's a bit odd to have everything on the iPad still zoom in and try to display everything larger than it needs to be be default. Is there some type of bookmarklet or some browser out there that will display websites at exactly a 1 to 1 pixel ratio, as if it were being viewed on a desktop with a 2048x1536 display?
I have an iPad2 and for the last few days I have noticed when I go to a website in safari I keep getting redirected to random ad sites. I tried clearing cache, history, cookies and that didn't do anything. I have restarted in every way possible, I have restored the iPad with a backup and also without but this problem won't go away! This occurs on most websites with not much pattern. I have noticed though that certain websites anyways redirect to the same other websites...
Im a photographer, And I like to check mine and other photographers blogs on the iPad. Problem is, it seems like, if im on a wordpress engine blog, i only get 2 images displayed.. Ive treid a few blogs, same thing. Could anyone with an ipad check my site and tell me how many images load on the blog? www.himynameispeter.com is my blog
With the new OS I can't connect to my schools network. To connect I have to open safari and log into the network but now the page to log in won't pop up because the ipad is "not connected to the internet".
