Have you created multiple accounts on different websites? This might create confusion while remembering the password of each account. Well, the Firefox web browser by default offers its users to remember passwords of their accounts.
You must have experienced that whenever you log in to any of your accounts on Firefox, a pop-up window appears which offers you that if you want, Firefox will remember your login credential for that particular website.
If you are not a single user of your system then you can also create a master password which will protect the information related to the password. You have to enter this master password only once when you start the session.
Let us start with the steps to remember password in Firefox. We will discuss two ways to do the same.
Step to Remember Password in Firefox:

Step 1: Open your Firefox web browser and click on the menu button at the top right corner of the browser window. From the displayed option click on Options.
Step 2: A new options tab will be opened and here in the index section click on Privacy and Security.
