Manage Passwords With Safari

When logging onto a Web site that requires a user name and password, Safari will ask if you want it to save that information for future use. If you choose to save the password, Safari will save that information and automatically access it every time you want to log onto that site. Having Safari remember your passwords can be a great time saving tool and save you the hassle of having to remember your login information. This is especially true if you have different passwords for different sites. Safari also gives you the ability to manage those passwords as you see fit.
