Force Safari to save sites' autofill-blocked form data
Authored by: Azark on Oct 15, '04 12:42:16PM
Why would you want your browser or computer to store your passwords anyway.
Are you joking?
I personally need my mac to remember my numerous passwords!
BTW, it's not the browser which "remember" the pw but the keychain.
And that's what it's for, no? To have one password to access all the others.
Nobody can't access it without my account pw anyway.

I access my bank account thru a local app anyway, but this trick is useful for admin console login at certain Internet hosts. When you have to manage numerous accounts this really make life easier.

Force Safari to save sites' autofill-blocked form data
Authored by: hembeck on Oct 17, '04 01:27:03PM

Maybe I don't know how keychain works, but whenever I go to a site that I have saved the login info for, Safari/Keychain just autofills the id & password. The only time it asks me what to do, is after I've rebuilt permissions, following an OS update. When this does happen, it just asks whether I want to deny this action, allow it once, or always allow it. No password is requested.

Again, maybe I don't know how Keychain is supposed to work, but I would like it to ask me for a password, but it never does.

It's quite obvious if you open up Keychain access and wander around. You are being lazy.

Two options:
- Keep the whole keychain permanently locked going to Edit > Change settings for keychain "login" (or whatever other keychain you'd like to secure. Tick "Lock after 0 sec of inactivity". You will be prompted to enter your keychain password every time any application tries to access it.

- Secure individual keys. Select a key, go to "Access control" tab, and remove Safari from the list of applications allowed to access that item.

I have not actually tried that out, so smooth any quirks yourself.
