The Community has your back, @subcontractorsat.

 

As Rustler stated, popular browsers store passwords to save you time when logging into web-based services like QuickBooks Online. In addition to the steps he provided for Mozilla FireFox, these will help you achieve the same goal in the remaining supported browsers:

 

 Internet Explorer

  1. Click the IE Gear icon (⚙) and select Internet Options. Navigate to the Content tab.
  2. Next to AutoComplete, click Settings. Select Manage Passwords.
  3. Select Delete AutoComplete History to remove all passwords stored in IE. If you'd like to prevent them from being saved again, un-check the box next to User names and passwords on forms.
  4. Click OK.

 Google Chrome 

  1. Open the Chrome Menu by clicking the 3-dots  in the top-right corner. Select Settings.
  2. Look for your Google account under People at the top. Click Passwords.
  3. Scroll down and click the 3-dots ⋮ to remove each password you don't want stored in Chrome. You can disable the feature entirely using the slider at the top.
  4. Close the window once you're finished.

 Safari Browser (Mac) 

  1. Open the Safari menu and select Preferences.
  2. Navigate to the Autofill tab. Click the Edit button next to Usernames and Passwords
  3. Delete whichever entries you'd like to remove.
  4. Click Done.

With these steps, you'll have total control over which browsers store your passwords and which ones they keep. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me here should there be anything else you need, I want to ensure your success. Thanks for coming to the Community and have a magnificent rest of your day.
