How to Get a Computer to Stop Remembering Incorrect Website Passwords
When you log in to a website for the first time, your browser may remember your password so you don't have to retype it each time. But if you mistype the password, or later change it to something else, the browser remembers the wrong password. In most cases, you can simply enter the correct password, and the browser offers to remember the new entry. But if you turned off the saved password feature, your browser will continue remembering the incorrect password unless you either delete the password in your browser settings or re-enable the saved password feature.
