I'm 68 so not so good with these problems lol
windows updated, now it's not saving certain
passwords eg booking.com, guestlink and knowhow cloud log in. tried using different web browers, Firefox and mircosoift edge. with the booking.com extranet it users location so every time I log in it wants verification via phone. It seems t happen when the computer has been switch off. I've checked 'location' and it looks ok but I'm not sure as I have no idea what I'm doing. Spoke to icloud knowhow and they think it's a sofeware problem. any help would be very appreciated.

There has been some instances reported of the same issue where Credential Manager is not saving the passwords for both websites and Windows services. At this time there isn't a resolution for this.

If your issue is more for websites, I would recommend a Password Manager is LastPass or 1Password. This service will save your passwords, and even create complex passwords for security, as well as log you into your sites.

No problem :) Firefox I think has its own password manager, but that is only for FireFox where the other password managers can go across other browsers and even to an app on a smartphone.

The reported issue would affect Microsoft Edge though.
