Storing your Onyen password for University sites in your Web browser’s saved password list can expose the data it protects to anyone else who uses your computer, and possibly to others on the Internet. This can be a major issue especially for HIPAA departments. In order to remove stored passwords for your web browser please follow the instructions below based on whether you are using Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox, or Google Chrome.
To remove individual passwords: when using IE and a saved password is pre-filled on your screen, simply highlight the username that displays there, and press the Delete key to remove just that one username/password combination from IE. Internet Explorer will then prompt you to confirm that you do want to delete it.
To remove all the saved passwords:
- Open the Tools menu.
- Select Internet Options.
- Click Content.
- Under AutoComplete, click Settings.
- Click Delete AutoComplete history…
To prevent AutoComplete in the future, make sure AutoComplete is deselected for User names and passwords on forms, and then click on OK.
- Open the Safari menu.
- Select Preferences.
- Switch to the Autofill tab.
- Click the Edit button for Usernames and Passwords.
- Delete the entry that corresponds with the site you want to remove.
Please click here for instructions whether you are on Mac or Windows.
