The auto fill of your password is a feature of your internet browser and not part of Gmail. Which browser are you using? Depending your your browser, you just have to go to the settings of that browser and change the setup to not remember your password and auto-fill it.

There are several ways to do this and it sometimes depends on the browser you are using. As you are concerned about security, I'd recommend that change your password.
Click on your account at the top right (if you have a photo, click on that, it should display a tooltip with your name). Next click on the word Account and then on Security. Click on change Password. When you next login you should be presented with an option for the browser to store the password--make sure it is off.
If you still have problems you may need to disable automatic login within the browser as described by: Disabling automatic sign in or, go straight to this link if you don't want to change your password.

Hi
There are several steps to this:-
1. Check your GMail account for recovery options
2. Change the setting in your browser regarding remembering passwords.
3. Going to your GMail account and changing the password
4. Checking that your new password is not remembered.
1. Login to your GMail account and click "account" in the drop down menu on the right upper corner of the page. Click the "security" heading and check that GMail has your mobile number and/or a recovery e-mail address, which must have absolutely no connection to Google. This is because when you try to change your password, for security reasons they will send you a text (hence mobile) or an e-mail (hence no connection to Google) with a special code that you will need to enter before your password can be changed.

2. In Chrome go to customise (three bar symbol on upper RHS of page) and select "settings". A new ta will open, scroll down and click on "show advanced settings" and scroll down to Passwords and Forms. Click on "Manage Passwords" and a window will open showing all the websites which have saved passwords for them. Find GMail and when the mouse hovers over the line, a cross will appear on the right hand side of the line. Click on this cross and your password is removed from the saved list (it will still work but will need entering every time)
- In Internet Explorer, when a saved password is pre-filled on your screen, simply highlight the username that displays there, and press the Delete key to remove just that one username/password combination from IE. Internet Explorer will then prompt you to confirm that you do want to delete it.
- Other browsers will have somewhat similar means of removing stored passwords.

3. Go to the GMail login page and click on "Need help?" to get to a page where you can select "I don't know my password" and continue where a new page will come up with your Google email as username. Click on "continue" and you will need to type in the characters shown and click "continue" another page will come up where you will be able to select a means by which Google will send you a code (text message or e-mail - hence the options in 1. above). Click continue again and a page will come up where you can enter your code (it does come through quickly on text) whereupon you can continue to a page to reset your password. This whole procedure can also be started from within your GMail account by going to Account > Security > Change Password.

4. Log in to GMail with your new password.

Hope this helps

It's as easy as doing a Sign Out of your gmail account when you have finished looking at your emal.

This is done by clicking on your avatar (the upper right round icon in gmail) and selecting Sign Out.

Next time you open gmail, it will ask for a user and password. This is very important to do at work's computers and cybers.

If you use internet explorer, in the upper right hand corner, click on the sprocket icon and go to:

  1. internet options
  2. content
  3. settings under autocomplete
  4. delete autocomplete history
  5. select passwords (uncheck the other options if you wish)
  6. click delete
i have IE 10. if you use a different version, the buttons might be called something else, but the steps are generally the same.

I cannot log in with my old password.


You might have just typed the password wrong . If not ,There are 2 reasons that i can think of that may have caused this :

1) Passwords are case sensitive , meaning ,it matters whether you type in uppercase or lower case letters. so , you may need to make sure the CAPS-LOCK key is turned off/on.

2) Some websites have a set amount of time you can stay offline. if you stay offline too long , your account gets deleted/deactivated.

One way to recover your account is to follow the "forgot password " procedure. you will have to enter your email address and the password gets sent to your mail. New password may be sent to you instead of your old one but you can change that once you log into your account.

hope it helps :)

Time display changes on its own 2 hours ahead of actual time


That would tend to put you in the Mountain time zone or someplace out West.

The CID from the first call after 2AM is adjusting the PBX clock. My guess is that you have Vonage or some other VoIP service for your phone lines that uses a box. The time is being corrupted because the box is not programmed properly. The best fix is to call your dial tone provider and get the procedure to log into the box and adjust the offset (my provider 8x8 gave me the login and password to my box). Once it's properly set up for your time zone, you'll have fixed the problem.

The alternative is to turn off the automatic time set in the PBX.

How to Log on Automatically to Windows 7 Without Typing Password


In this tutorial I will tell you how to configure Windows 7 OS to automatically connect without prompting you to enter your login password each time user account. Although in this example can be found on many other sites, we have decided to publish them. The problem with other similar guides is that they are not complete and not to give you all information you need to know. So I will try to guide you through all stages and share them with you all the information you need to know in order not to ruin the computer.
First, open the Run window by pressing the Windows key + R or launch the Command Prompt. Type one of the following two commands: netplwiz.exe or control userpasswords2. No matter which one you use, they have identical results and launch the same window.
Once you run the command, a User Accounts window similar to the one below will launch. There you will see the list of users registered on your PC. Select the user for which you no longer want to type the password in order to log in to Windows 7. Uncheck the option which says 'Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer' and click on OK.
http://i.fixya.net/fixya20autologwindows71_thumb.jpg
Now you will be asked to type right user password of the user twice. After done, click on OK.
http://i.fixya.net/fixya20autologonwindows72_thumb.jpg
The next time you will start Windows 7, you will be automatically logged on with the user you just selected. This user will become the default log on user to Windows 7.
IMPORTANT NOTES:
If you have multiple users on your PC, the definition of that definition could be a disadvantage. Windows 7 will still automatically connect to the user that you selected during this procedure. Sign in to join to have another user wait for Windows 7 to boot and connects you automatically to disconnect, then the other user you wish to register. If you set things on how they followed the same procedure and make sure you check the option which says 'Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer'.
If this Windows 7 PC has joined a network domain, such as a company network, this procedure will not work. In network domains, the policies regarding the log on procedure are set by the network administrator and cannot be overwritten by users. If you try this on your office computer, there is not way.

One of the cornerstones of Windows Vista is security. Vista comes with User Account Control (UAC) system, firewall protection against malware, spyware, phishing filter, automatic updates, and, of course, that the procedure for logging into your account and password. All this is a great security and gives you peace of mind knowing that your system is protected, surfing the Internet.
However, if you're the only one who ever used the Windows Vista system in your home? Have you ever wanted to do it so that you to bypass the logon Windows Vista, and get right to work? There is a way that this task with a hidden tool called the Advanced User Accounts Control Panel to run.
In this release, Windows Vista Report, I'll show you how to circumvent the access and use of additional user accounts in Control Panel, Windows Vista logon procedure and essentially configure Vista to automatically log on when you turn on the system.
Accessing the hidden tool To access the hidden Advanced User Accounts Control Panel, click the Start button, type “Control Userpasswords2′ in the Start Search box, as shown in Figure A, and press [Enter]. When you do, you’ll encounter a UAC dialog box and will need to respond accordingly.
Figure A 1_thumb.png To access the hidden Advanced User Accounts Control Panel, you’ll type Control Userpasswords2 in the Start Search box. In a moment, you’ll see the Advanced User Accounts Control Panel, as shown in Figure B. (As you can see, the dialog box is simply titled User Accounts.)
Figure B 2_thumb.png The dialog box for the Advanced User Accounts Control Panel is simply titled User Accounts. Configuring the automatic log on To configure the automatic log on, select your user name in the Users For This Computer list, if it isn’t already selected. Then clear the Users Must Enter A User Name And Password To Use This Computer check box. When you do so, your Advanced User Accounts Control Panel will look like the one in Figure C. To continue, click OK.
Figure C 3_thumb.png Once you clear the Users Must Enter A User Name And Password To Use This Computer check box, the Users For This Computer list becomes unavailable. As the last step in configuring the automatic log on, you’ll see the Automatically Log On dialog box, shown in Figure D, and will need to type your password in both the Password and Confirm Password text boxes. To complete the operation, click OK.
Figure D 4_thumb.png You’ll be prompted to type your password in the Automatically Log On dialog box. To test your Automatic log on, simply restart your computer. When you do, Windows Vista should automatically log you on.
What’s your take? Now that you know how to access the Advanced User Accounts Control Panel and enable the automatic log on feature, will you do so? Please drop by the Discussion Area and let us in on your thoughts.
Finally Solution
I usually used the cheapest and easy to use tools, especitally free trial: like Windows Password Recovery tool 3.0 to reset Windows Vista password.
