Manage saved passwords - Computer - Chromebook Help: "Stop Chrome from asking to save passwordsI prefer to use a password manager like LastPass to manage my passwords.
By default, Chrome offers to save your password. You can turn this option off or on at any time.
On your computer, open Chrome.
At the top right, click More Settings.
At the bottom, click Advanced.
Under "Password and forms," click Manage passwords.
Turn the setting off."

I would prefer not to have my web browser, like Chrome, offer to save passwords. Normally I disable this.
However, my employer has many sites that use password systems that LastPass in Chrome cannot recognize and manage. Like HTTP Basic Authentication - although I hope that IT does not do THAT. Not just myemployer.com and www.myemployer.com, but many, many, subdomains.
So, unfortunately, I have to use browser based password management for many sites in *.myemployer.com (plus a few others that are outsourced).
It is annoying that browser based password management is either ON for all sites, or OFF. At least in Chrome. Not just annoying, but fragile. If a password is saved in both my briwser and LastPass, it can become inconsistent, and can get lost. I wish that I could provide a few regexps to indicate which sites the browser should and should not try to save passwords.
I wonder if FireFox supports that.
