In the Security tab, click on “User Authentication” and then select “Prompt for user name and password” from the drop-down list.

Why does Internet Explorer keep asking for password?
Internet Explorer may ask for a password when accessing certain websites or services. This is because the website or service requires authentication to access it, which Internet Explorer prompts for in order to verify the user’s identity. Authentication can be done using passwords, security tokens, or other forms of verification depending on the website’s security protocols. It is important to keep your password secure and not share it with anyone else as this could lead to unauthorized access of your account.

Why is my browser not saving my passwords?
There are a few potential reasons why your browser might not be saving your passwords. One possibility is that you have disabled the feature in the browser settings. Depending on the type of browser you are using, you may need to enable a setting such as “Remember Passwords” or “Save Passwords” in order for it to remember them.
Another possible cause could be that your computer is set up with multiple user profiles, and each profile has its own separate settings. In this case, it could be that the password-saving feature is enabled only in one of the profiles and not in another.
It’s also possible that there may be an issue with the website itself – some websites don’t allow browsers to save passwords due to security concerns. If this is the case, then no matter what settings you adjust on your browser, it won’t save any passwords for those sites.
Finally, if you’re using an older version of a web browser then it may not support password remembering at all – so upgrading to a newer version would likely solve this problem too.
Why not store passwords in browser?
Storing passwords in a browser can be tempting, as it makes logging into websites and applications easier. However, this practice is not recommended due to security concerns. Browsers are designed with convenience in mind, which means they may not have the same level of security as a dedicated password manager or even an individual computer. Additionally, when using multiple devices and browsers on different platforms, there is no guarantee that your password will sync across all of them correctly. Furthermore, if someone gains access to your device or browser settings, they could potentially gain access to all of your passwords stored in the browser. Therefore, it’s best to use a secure password manager or store passwords on individual computers for maximum safety and peace of mind.
How do I turn off Internet Explorer restrictions?
Internet Explorer restrictions can be disabled in the Internet Options section of the browser. To do this, open Internet Explorer, click the gear icon at the top right corner of the window and select “Internet Options”. In the General tab, scroll down to Security and uncheck any boxes labeled “Enable Protected Mode” or “Restricted Sites Zone”. Once this is done, click OK to save your changes and restart Internet Explorer. After that you should no longer have any restrictions enabled.
How do I manage passwords not showing in Internet Explorer?
Managing passwords in Internet Explorer can be a tricky task. If you find that passwords are not showing up when you try to log into a website, it could be due to several potential issues.
First, make sure your browser is up-to-date and that you’re using the latest version of Internet Explorer. Outdated browsers may fail to store or display passwords properly, so updating the browser should resolve this issue if it’s due to outdated software.
You can also check your internet security settings and make sure they are not set too high for password storage. Additionally, if you have recently changed your password or added new ones, it might take some time for them to show up in Internet Explorer.
Finally, if none of these steps help resolve the issue, then there may be an underlying issue with the way Windows is managing credentials on your computer. To troubleshoot this problem further, consider running a malware scan on your system and resetting any related settings in Windows Credential Manager or other credential management tools within Windows 10 Settings.
