    I went to reset safari, did NOT check 'remove passwords' and it still removed passwords. I've done this twice - check yourself. Maybe this is a bug

    Is there a way to backup the password database safari holds?

    Those passwords are stored in the Keychain app, so you would backup from there.

    is there any way to stop safari asking to save passwords? i checked under settings but couldnt find it..

    i use 1password so its annoying to have safari ask for passwords every time i visit a new page (and besides, i dont trust safari with my passwords). thanks.

    I believe if you uncheck this box it will stop asking.

    The bigger issue is that passwords are cleared from safari even if deselect the option
