How Can You Get Internet Explorer to Remember Your Email Password?

Save

Having different passwords for all of your email accounts is a good idea because if someone gets a hold of one password, he won't be able to access all of your accounts. But trying to remember all of these passwords can be difficult. Fortunately, Internet Explorer has an AutoComplete option that takes the guesswork out of remembering your information. AutoComplete saves your passwords and enters them automatically when you visit that website and enter your user name.

  • Open the Internet Explorer Web browser, and click on the "Tools" option in the top right-hand corner of the screen. Select "Internet Options" from the drop-down menu.

  • Click on the "Content" tab in the "Internet Options" dialog box.

  • Click on the "Settings" button under the "AutoComplete" section. Place a check mark inside the box that is labeled "User names and passwords on forms," as well as "Ask me before saving passwords."

  • Visit your email provider's website, and log in using your email address and password.

  • Click on "Yes" when a dialog box pops up that asks "Do you want Internet Explorer to remember this password?" The next time you go to log in to your email account and enter your email address, the password will appear automatically.

Tips & Warnings

  • Saving your passwords allows others who use that computer to access your email account.
