One Step Ahead

Another tip in a series provided by the Offices of Information Systems & Computing and Audit, Compliance & Privacy.

Don’t Save Passwords in Your Web Browser

Most newer web browsers prompt you to save your usernames and passwords for websites, which may contain private information such as your email, or financial information such as your credit card number. You should never save your PennKey password or your passwords for other University systems, and it’s not a good idea to save passwords for other systems containing personal information either. Once you save a password, anyone using your computer could access your private information, or a worm or virus could steal your password.

For instructions on removing stored passwords from your web browser, please see www.upenn.edu/computing/security/footprints/#removestoredpws.
