Summary0026360: Avoid storing credentials in login page

Our security department suggests avoid store credential in [login_password_page.php] in order to increase security level.

Despite of this, some clients could prefer store their credentials into browser so the possibility of storing credentials may be parametrized.

TagsNo tags attached.

Do you mean the Keep me logged in option ?

If so, that can be disabled by setting $g_allow_permanent_cookie = OFF; in your config. You can also define how "permanent" that is, by changing $g_cookie_time_length (default 1 year).

Note that this does not actually store the user's credentials, it just saves a cookie with the user's session id.

Is related with these option too, but more precise with browser behavoir.

May be forced with:

<INPUT TYPE="password" AUTOCOMPLETE="off">
