iphone autofill password

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

for a while now, the mobile version of Epicski has not remembered my password to auto login to the site from my iphone.  However, what seems to have been the alternate behavior on my iphone has been that when I click on the login field to login, an "autofill password" link is displayed below, and clicking on it automatically fills in my login and password.  this is using safari on iphone6. 

 

Starting yesterday, that autofill password link no longer shows up.  So every time I come to the epicski site from iphone I have to relogin in again by manually entering my name and password.

 

Not sure if you guys changed something in the mobile site within the past few days, or if the latest iphone OS update did.  Any idea?

 

Its kind of a pain to use the iphone now for epicski due to this

We've not done any updates, so it would have to be an iOS or Safari update that did it.

I actually figured out a solution for this in case anyone has the same issue. In IOS Safari click the icon on the bottom right to bring up all the open pages. In the bottom right there is a word "Private". If it's highlighted it means the phone is in private browsing mode and I guess ignores cookies or something. Click it to turn it off and problem goes away, Epicski logs in as it should

You beat me to it. I had the exact same problem a few months ago and realized I had inadvertently turned on private browsing.

 

In a nutshell (For IE but exact same concept)

 

InPrivate Browsing enables you to surf the web without leaving a trail in Internet Explorer. This helps prevent anyone else who might be using your computer from seeing what sites you visited and what you looked at on the web. You can start InPrivate Browsing from the New Tab page or the Safety button.

When you start InPrivate Browsing, Internet Explorer opens a new browser window. The protection that InPrivate Browsing provides is in effect only during the time that you use that window. You can open as many tabs as you want in that window, and they will all be protected by InPrivate Browsing. However, if you open another browser window, that window will not be protected by InPrivate Browsing. To end your InPrivate Browsing session, close the browser window.

While you are surfing the web using InPrivate Browsing, Internet Explorer stores some information—such as cookies and temporary Internet files—so the webpages you visit will work correctly. However, at the end of your InPrivate Browsing session, this information is discarded. The following table describes which information InPrivate Browsing discards when you close the browser and how it is affected during your browsing session:
