Many of us think this “Remember Me” option in IE or Firefox is very much useful but the risky part is dat they keep ur login credential at risk.

View stored passwords in Internet Explorer:

Although Internet Explorer store ur passwords in Windows Registry database, but the risk is that anyone who can operate a computer can reveal ur hidden passwords by using IE PassView.
