Brave and Vivaldi provide an option to save your password with a pop-up when you sign in to a website. It can help you log in to your account the next time, but the pop-up can get annoying if you do not wish to use this feature. So in this article, we will discuss how you can disable the save password pop-up in the Brave and Vivaldi browser.
How to Turn Off the Save Password Prompt
Brave and Vivaldi show this Save password pop-up every time you log in to any of your accounts or sign up on a website.
This feature is useful but less secure than dedicated password manager extensions. It is preferable to turn it off if you are not planning to use it. The process to disable this pop-up is slightly different on both browsers, but we will show you how to turn it off completely step by step.
Disable Save Password Pop-Up in Brave Browser
Step 1: Open Brave and click on the three lines at the top right corner.
Step 2: Go to Settings.
Step 3: Select Autofill from the left sidebar.
Step 4: Click on Passwords.
Step 5: Turn off the toggle for Offer to save passwords.
Step 6: Now turn off the Auto Sign-in toggle as well.
This will disable the Save password pop-up and stop the browser from automatically filling in your password.
Delete Saved Passwords in Brave Browser
In the same menu, you can view all your previously saved passwords. If you wish to delete them from your browser, you can easily do so by following the steps below:
Step 1: Select the password you want to delete and click on the three dots next to it.
Step 2: Select the Remove option.
The password will be instantly deleted from your browser.
Disable Save Password Pop-Up in Vivaldi Browser
Step 1: Launch the Vivaldi browser and click on the Vivaldi icon in the top left corner of the screen.
Step 2: Click on Settings.
Step 3: Go to Privacy and Security.
Step 4: Here, untick the option that says, Save Webpage Passwords.
Now Vivaldi will stop asking you to save your passwords whenever you log in to a website.
Bonus: Use a Password Manager Extension
We all use multiple accounts these days, so keeping track of the login credentials of every single one of them is not easy. One day or another, you will forget or mix up the passwords, so having a password manager can help manage all your passwords.
Here are recommendations for some of the best password manager extensions that you can try out:
- LastPass: LastPass is a feature-packed password manager that lets you store unlimited passwords and sync them across devices for free. It uses 256-bit AES encryption to secure your password and also offers an authenticator app to let you sign in to any app using your fingerprint.
- DashLane: Comes with a modern user interface where you can easily store up to 50 passwords for free, along with credit card details and addresses. It also offers a VPN and will alert you about any dark web data breaches.
- BitWarden: This is an open-source password manager that uses the same 256-bit AES end-to-end encryption as LastPass. It offers features like Vault, Bitwarden Send, and a secure password generator in the free version. Here’s how you can setup Bitwarden in Chrome.
- Roboform: One of the oldest password managers that lets you store unlimited passwords for free. It also has password sharing, auditing tools, and a password generator. The paid plan lets you sync your password across multiple devices.
The ability to save your password on the browser was quite useful back in the day. Still, using a password manager is better and more secure these days as they encrypt your login details and provide several useful features.
