When I submit a form and the page refreshes the password and password confirmation values are being displayed in the address bar. Why is this? Can anyone explain this and give me an idea how to suppress this behavior? Please see attached screenshot. Thank you in advance! ![pass12.jpg](/attachments/large/0/f9784f8c4ab7d06aef077fb0ecdc4988.jpg "align-center")

How many passwords do you have to remember? The common answer is either too many and I sometimes forget them, or alternatively just the one as I use it for everything. Both options are bad in terms of security. Which is where password management systems come in, and these can …
