Saving Passwords – as Homer says DOH!

4 Nov 2011

You may have noticed that we don’t have a Remember Me option on our login page. This is because it is not good practice to save login details for systems that contain sensitive data.

If this option were configured, people who have access to your computer could access your protected systems without any user control, they could impersonate you and potentially cause havoc in your name.

Even though we do not have this Remember Me option your internet browser does have technology built in that will prompt you to save your username and password when you enter login details. We strongly advise that you do not use this feature, should your computer fall into the wrong hands your access to OpenCRM will not be compromised!

From OpenCRM V3.02 this browser save feature is disabled by default and although not every browser implements the standards that we adhere to major browsers will no longer ask if you want to remember the username/password for this page.
