    Hello,

    I have to sign in every time to get access to my e mails,even though when I look in settings it says that my password is saved. I run Windows 10.

    BUT, does your email provider allow the use of saved passwords?

    Who is your email provider?
    What program are you using to save this password?

    Most companies do not want ANY passwords to be saved!
