There is a function on server login forms to enable or disable remembering passwords. Since the Lee County Library System's online catalog uses the same login page for remote users and for all the public computers in the libraries, that function has been disabled to keep public computer logins secure.
Different browsers handle that function in different ways. In some browsers, the built-in autocomplete function can override the server settings, but this is not always the case. A browser password manager add-on may be required if patrons want to save passwords in these cases.
Please be aware that enabling autocomplete where the server has disabled it has security implications if using a shared computer.
