Save or add a new username and password on Safari Mac

Mac passwords are one of the most used mechanisms at the security level when we access a website and we always recommend that it be as complex as possible to prevent dictionary attacks and other techniques from capturing said password. It is normal that in our day-to-day life, living in front of a computer, we must access sites where the password has already been hosted, for this reason browsers offer the option of self-saving the password to avoid manual entry of it..

 

Safari launches a message where it offers to automatically save the password information the moment you log in to a website for the first time, so if we have to access that site with another user, we have an ideal option, which is to enter the user and password manually since Safari will no longer ask for the request, with TechnoWikis we will see how to add username and password in Safari on macOS.
