How To Remove A Saved Username & Password From Your Browser
Hello

If you get this error in your ACP (Admin Control Panel)
Note the email address is sort of mixed up. This is because the data saved on your browser. The password is already filled in. This is your own password from your browser, not the members you are trying to change.

This tutorial will help you remove passwords from your browsers if you are having Problems in your ACP.

This error is down to usernames and passwords saved in your browser that conflict with our settings in the ACP.

Mozilla Firefox


Windows



  1. In the menu bar, open the Tools menu.
  2. Select Options.
  3. Switch to the Security tab.
  4. Click on Saved Passwords.

To eliminate all existing saved passwords, click  Remove all.  To eliminate specific saved passwords, click View Saved Passwords and delete just those associated with weblogin.bu.edu.  If you wish, deselect the option to Remember passwords. This will prevent passwords from being saved in the future. In older versions of Firefox, this option is in the Privacy tab instead of Security.

Mac OS X

  2. Select Preferences.
  3. Switch to the Security tab.
  4. Click on Saved Passwords.

To eliminate all existing saved passwords, click  Remove all.  To eliminate specific saved passwords, click View Saved Passwords and delete just those associated with weblogin.bu.edu.  If you wish, deselect the option to Remember passwords. This will prevent passwords from being saved in the future. In older versions of Firefox, this option is in the Privacy tab instead of Security.

Internet Explorer


To delete individual passwords:  when using IE and a saved password is pre-filled on your screen, simply highlight the username that displays there, and press the Delete key to remove just that one username/password combination from IE. Internet Explorer will then prompt you to confirm that you do want to delete it.
To delete all saved passwords:

  1. Open the Tools menu.
  2. Select Internet Options.
  3. Click Content.
  4. Under AutoComplete, click Settings.
  5. Click Delete AutoComplete history…

To prevent AutoComplete in the future, make sure AutoComplete is deselected for User names and passwords on forms, and then click on OK.

Chrome



  1. Open the Chrome menu using the button on the far right of the browser toolbar.

  2. Choose Settings from the left-hand menu.
  3. Click Show advanced settings at the bottom of the page.
  4. Click Manage saved passwords in the “Passwords and forms” section.

    • Windows, Linux, and Chrome devices: In the Passwords dialog that appears, hover over the site whose password you’d like to remove and click the X that appears.
    • Mac OS X: Remove the site passwords in the Keychain Access dialog that appears.



More information on managing website passwords in Chrome can be found in the Google Help pages.

Microsoft Edge


Applies to Windows 10  
When you visit a website that requires you to sign in, Microsoft Edge will ask if you want your username and password remembered. The next time you visit the site, Microsoft Edge will finish filling in your account info. Password saving is on by default, but here’s how to turn it on or off:

In the Microsoft Edge browser, select  More actions (...)  > Settings  > View Advanced Settings.
Turn Offer to save passwords  to Off.

Note: This does not delete previously saved passwords. To do that, go to Settings,  select Choose what to clear  under Clear browsing data,  and then choose Passwords.
