    Wasn't there a tweak that forced Safari to always save passwords, even without a pass ode and even if the site opts out? I'm trying to find a way to get safari to always remember my login info for any site I visit.

    Yes, it's already built into Safari's settings.

    Settings>Safari>Passwords&Auto Fill>Always Allow

    Happy To Help? LOL... you didn't help, you demonstrated that you don't understand the feature. Always Allow doesn't override the Do Not Allow that many banking\protected sites have setup... therefor there needs to be a tweak to override that. Some sites simply won't save login\passwords.

    Insecure? No, that's what a user is who doesn't want their password stored. Unsecure or not secure maybe. But then again, it's not displaying your password, it's merely saving your login and password. If someone has your finger (presumably attached to your body still) in order to get passed the touch ID to get into safari, you have more to worry about then them having access to your bank account.

    And the reality of things is most major banks now use secondary identification in order to authenticate certain things (i.e. external funds transfer, changing info, etc), so a saved password really just logs you into the site... so in a worst case scenario where someone could bypass the fingerprint sensor, the thief would know how much you have in your checking account. Big deal.

    I think the question is more related to a site such as my company's extranet where we put in a user\pass to login, and the company tells web browsers not to remember the password and user name. I want a tweak to make it remember even though a website doesn't want it to remember.

    First off shenan, I wasn't talking to you. I was responding to the OP, so don't be getting up in my face for responding to him/her.

    jjk454ss was asking for a tweak that'll have Safari save the signin even if the site requests not to.

    I say the the Always Allow fits that bill. I don't use it myself, as I use 1Password.

    As for the acronym HTH, I was using it as a shortcut to 'Hope This Helps'. Which I was trying to for jjk454ss... Help.

    "First off".... which by the way is a completely unnecessary addition when writing as it conveys illiteracy.... like typing "umm" or any other sort of filler words that would be used when speaking.

    I realize you were responding to the OP, but my question was the same. "Always Allow" doesn't fit the bill, because it doesn't work in many cases. In any case, it's no longer a toggle in the current (or several past versions of iOS)... so my guess is you're on an older version of iOS.

    I've used 1Password... it's good for what it does; store passwords bake accounts, etc, but completely different tool than what this thread is about.

    Hopefully someone who is familiar with what we're trying to accomplish can pipe in with some constructive advice. There was a tweak out there (before the days of Apple's "always fill") where it forced Safari to remember passwords. Not sure how that would work now that everything is driven off the shared keychain Apple's gone to... because the tweak would have to integrate with that, and I don't think Apple's security is loose enough to allow someone into that.

    Wow! Someone is a tad full of himself.

    You know, if you're going to knock someone's communication skills, you might want to proof read your own comments. Unless of course you actually have an account for baked goods. :rolleyes: I won't hold it against you though, as my illiterate mind fails to comprehend your superior intellect.

    Oh, and thank you by the way, I didn't realize that iOS 7.0.6 was several versions back. My bad. I again bow to your greatness.

    I appreciate all the responses. I am looking for something more than the Settings>Always Allow option though.

    I also use 1Password, but until it works in Safari, it kind of sucks. Not Agiles fault, but still pretty worthless. I'd love something to integrate it into Safari, which it rounds like ios8 may finally allow.

    But for now something that would allow a Safari yo save them, and even sync between iPhone, ipad, and MBA.

    Really? So you haven't heard about 7.1 or 7.1.1? So yeah, 7.0.6 is several versions back.

    ----------

    Agree. 1Password is a completely useless application. Using a password to access stored passwords. Now that a phone has fingerprint TouchID there's no need for a password protected app. May as well use notes. Your fingerprint is far more secure than a password.

    Yes, I have heard of those 2 updates, but thank you for reminding me. However, you might wanna check your auto-correct, as it keeps changing 'couple' (as in 2) into 'several' (as in more than 2). I'm sure you already knew that, so it must be frustrating for you.

    HTH

    PS. Regarding your comparison of 1Password and Notes... I did not know Notes itself was password protected on the iOS. I'll have to check that out. Thank you for the Heads Up :rolleyes:

    Per Webster the primary definition of several is "separate or distinct from one another" and the secondary definition of several is "more than one" ... so maybe the region you're from has a different norm when it comes to usage, but if I have several iOS devices, it means I have 2 or more. You seem interested in semantics, so I gave you the formal correction.

    No, Notes clearly doesn't have password protection... but why do you need it? The entire device is protected by a fingerprint, which is far superior to a password... so by using your fingerprint, you acknowledge that a password is inferior security, but then you play cheerleader for an app (which is designed by a developer outside any well-established, reputable company without any real software security experts employed)... and you'll side with that? Okay. Suit yourself.
