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.
