WebOS browser saving site passwords.

Question

How can I save username & password to specific sites I'm subscribed to in the browser app?  Logging in with the remote is cumbersome at best.  There needs to be a way to automate the process.

@Freewheelin37 The TV browsers are not really designed for  "fully functioning" web browsing and password management (none have a proper "password manager" as far as I know). They are really for casual browsing only. They have never been designed to be "PC Replacements" although many people try to use them like that, and are dissapointed when they find that they cannot download and update "apps" and browsers like a PC or phone can. Some owners even ask if they can upgrade the TV's memory!

The best way to use your Internet Web accounts, is to use your PC/Laptop, download a GOOD browser like Firefox, that has an EXCELLENT password manager built in, and will even detect password fields for new accounts setups, and suggest very secure random password strings, that you can save for every account, (and once saved you can edit any via an excellent User interface (UI )). Logging into any of thos accounts will automatically bring up the correct user name and login (even if on seperate pages for most sites).

      According to the developer site, the Web Engine powering the Apps and I assume the Web Browser on WebOS is built on version 53 of Chromium (for 2018-2019 models) or Chromium 68 (for 2020 models). Version 53 is from 2016, and 68 is from 2018. The current version is 85.
      The latest version of JavaScript used  by modern websites (ES7) is only supported in version 68 and above, and there has been some evidence that although WebOS is using version 53 of Chromium the browser is not fully compatible with the previous JavaScript version (ES6).
      The result is that by keeping the WebOS browsers locked in older Chromium bases users will find more websites become unusable on our Smart TVs as old sites are upgraded to new versions and new sites come out. This is not an issue for Android based Smart TVs where users can install current web browsers of their choice.
      LG is supposed to be a leader in technology- I have been incredibly pleased with my LG phones and other appliances but am extremely disappointed with the proprietary WebOS browser on LG Smart TVs. IN 2020 it is unacceptable thar such a fundamental function of a smart device (web browsing) is so out of date.

      Hello,
      How do I know what is my password in my LG TV. I want to reset my password, and it is showing me a four digit numbers password. I have tried all kinds of options, nothing is working.
       
      Thanks

      Hi all - just purchased a new OLED48CX6LB and looking to use the magic remote to control my sky plus box.   I’ve managed to figure out most controls with the exception of being able to set a programme to record from the planner (the equivalent of pressing R on the sky remote)
      is there any way to do this ?
      thanks in advance for any help

      Is this reported ?
      The Remote ceases to - Mute & control sound volume, following any use of "Quick access" (long press on numbers)
      Power off the TV - Power back on, returns function until "Quick access" is used again.
