Disable Your Browser's Built-in Password Manager

Most web browsers include built-in password management that prompts you to save passwords for sites that you visit. Pitt Password Manager (LastPass) is a much more secure method of storing passwords. After you install Pitt Password Manager, disable your browser's built-in password management feature to avoid confusion and enhance security.
