On my rooted Galaxy Nexus 4.1.1, stock browser doesn't store any password for Hotmail, but whenever I open Hotmail, it logins automatically.

I checked data/data/, the password table has a row for Hotmail like below:

host =, username = blank, password = blank

Why does it still auto login Hotmail even though the password is not stored?
