    You may need to alter this setting based on your use of your phone, who uses it, perhaps you have other people who often use your phone and you don't want them to access some of your more private websites.
    So if the Internet Explorer always remembers your password on the Microsoft Lumia 535, then it will allow anyone to access those websites at all times, and that may be a problem for you. If you choose one of these options, so we just press the panel. Just press the panel to bring up the options.

    The options are "website passwords":
    "remember," "don't remember," or "ask each time". So you need to select one that's more relative and more suitable for you. But you have the option of then not remembering your password, so you have to enter it each time that is obviously more secure.

    Ask each time, if they want you to remember the password or just remember them universally so every time you type a password it will just automatically remember it forever.
    These are your three options. Choose the one that is more suitable for you and that should work out for you.
