Why can't I uncheck "remember passwords" in Security options


When I go to "Options" - "Security" the "Remember password for sites" checkbox is checked and the whole line is in a grey color and won't let me deselect the checkbox.

You aren't running in Private mode are you?

If that isn't the issue, which security suite are you running?

Question owner

I am not in Private Browsing and I'm running Norton version I recall unchecking it back when I first installed 18 (or maybe it was 17) but I think it greyed out after an automatic update???????
