The stock browser forgets the username and password when logging into mobile versions of Google sites such as Google Search and Google Tasks. Setting Menu -> Settings -> Privacy Settings -> Remember form data and Menu -> Settings -> Security settings -> Remember passwords in the browser has no effect. Checking the "Remember me" checkbox at the sites' login forms has no effect either. How can I get this to work?

I use a Nexus S running Android 2.3.6.

Webpages can opt out of autofill; intended to be added security for banks and other sites requiring higher than normal security. There are ways to circumvent this in firefox, chrome and IE but I haven't figured out how to do it for android. Whats the origin of the android browser code base? That might be another place to look.


It could possibly be due to blocking cookies. If you don't accept the cookie it will never remeber who you are.

Check the setting for:

Menu->Settings->Accept cookies

Use an app called LoginBox. It's a browser that specialize in remembering the complete login process.

    This answer might be useful if you edit it to add a link to the app you're recommending. Also, please confirm your relationship (if any) with this app: recommending your own app is OK on this site, as long as you're honest.
