Why does my browser sometimes refuse to remember my passwords?

My computer will randomly forget username information on my bank accounts. I have checked “remember my passwords” in Internet options?contents?settings, but it didn’t help. It will be fine for months, then all will disappear. Usually this affects my Facebook login in too, but not always.

    Do you ever clear your cookies, perhaps using a program like CCleaner? Clearing your cookies clears out the information that checking "Keep me signed in" boxes sets.

    I would recommend trying another browser. Or install LastPass, which works in Internet Explorer if you're sold on IE.

    LastPass manages all your passwords for you and is much more secure than having your browser remember them. I honestly can't imagine my online life without it.

    Hope this helps!
