Safari 8 (Yosemite): Passwords pane of Safari preferences

Passwords pane of Safari preferences

View or edit user names and passwords Safari saved for websites. To set these options, open Safari, choose Safari > Preferences, then click Passwords.

To sort the website list, click a column heading. For example, to focus on websites with saved passwords, bring them to the top of the list by clicking the Password column heading. Click again to change the sort direction.

Search field

Search website addresses, user names, and shown passwords in the list.

AutoFill user names and passwords

Let Safari securely save user names and passwords you enter on webpages, then automatically fill in the saved information when you revisit the same webpages.

If a website’s password is listed as “never saved,” Safari never autofills it. To let Safari autofill your password for a website, remove the website from this list.

Passwords list

Lists websites whose passwords you saved while logging in and whose passwords you chose never to save.

Remove

Remove websites you selected in the list. To select multiple websites, Command-click or Shift-click them.

Show passwords for selected websites

List readable passwords instead of dots for websites you selected in the list. To select multiple websites, Command-click or Shift-click them.
