December 10, 2010 (published) | December 12, 2019 (revised)

Your Web browser can save certain details entered into online forms, such as usernames and passwords for different websites. The browser can then use this information to automatically fill-in some sign-in forms when you next visit these websites. Follow these steps to turn on/off this option in your browser.

Note: These instructions are for saving your log-in details using your browser's AutoFill or AutoComplete feature, it does not automate your VIN login. If at any time you change your username, password, or other secure information, you'll need to repeat these steps to save the new details.
