    I like the autofill feature for remembering passwords on various websites in safari, but I was wondering if there was a way to edit which ones have been saved other than simply clearing all of them. If I let a friend use the iPad for a couple minutes, they usually want to check their Facebook, gmail, etc and end up choosing "never for this site" after prompted whether or not to save. This clears my password, and the only thing I can do is reset all of the passwords so I can re-enter everything and have it saved.

    Is there a way to edit the saved passwords? Or at least allow myself to enter passwords again on certain websites without clearing everything?

    Thanks

    You can edit the saved passwords by going to the site again and entering your new password. It will overwrite the old one.

    If you have previously chosen to "never save the password" for a certain site would this method also re-enable thst capability? Thanks for the reply.

    Yeah, I know there's been a time where I meant to press "yes" and accidentally hit "never". Anyone know how to fix that?

    I use 1password

    One thing it allows you to do is import all of your saved sites and from there you can edit.

    Cool app worth checking out

    That's what I'm using. It's actually the universal +version for iPad/iPhone/iPod.
    I use it on my iPhone iPad and the desktop version is on my Mac.
