Default Web sites login / password >>How do I save this info.

Please Login to Remove!

I have a 7290 running 4.0 OS. When I go to various web sites that require a login, how do i save this information so that I don't have to type it in each time I visit the same web site?

Thanks for your help.

I tried that. It's just a vault to keep your passwords secure. It doesn't automatically place the passwords into a web site upon login.

I thought the ability to "remember" passwords was a basic function of a web browser.

The browser will remember passwords (for example totalfark) but Only for the life of that browser. Since the app is kept in memory so is the password - kill the app - re-enter password.

I thought there is a memory cache were these could be stored for future use?

Use FireFox or Opera; both have password storage.

More than that, they're good for you (secure and safe)!!

Default Why then does the WAP browswer stay logged in

My ATT/Cingular WAP browswer stays logged in but my BB browser does not. Anyone know why. 7100g with 4.0.
