Disabling the browser’s built-in password management feature

Many modern web browsers provide rudimentary password management features that may actually conflict with the richer feature set provided by 1Password. We strongly recommend disabling your browser’s password management feature.

Note: You might not want to clear the list of saved passwords in your browser until you’ve created Logins in 1Password for the corresponding sites. Once you have, though, clearing the passwords saved in your browser might plug a potential “hole” in your system’s security.
