I use a wifi hotspot where, after I connect, I have to fill in my username and password in a loginscreen. My username stays the same, but the password changes quite often.

Safari used to detect when I entered a different password, and offer me to update my saved password. Now not any more...

How do I enable this?

  • I tried removing the password in the hope it would ask me to save the password when I enter it. But it doesn't happen. "AutoFill" is enabled in the safari settings. – user1073075 Dec 17 '15 at 16:05
  • On "normal" websites I don't seem to have this problem, but on the WIFI login page I do have this. Maybe that page has somehow disabled the possibility to store passwords recently? – user1073075 Dec 21 '15 at 15:08
  • The only way I know how to do it is to directly modify the keychain database. – Andrew Larsson Dec 22 '15 at 7:42

Go to Settings→Safari→'Passwords and AutoFill' and enable 'Name and Passwords'.
