I am using Google chrome
Version 54.0.2840.71 (64-bit) on Ubuntu, when I go to settings (accessible via the url:
chrome://settings or by clicking on settings in the options menu, then click on:
this launches this window revealing the
Auto Sign-in option:
I thought might mean what it says and - "Auto-matically log me in" - so I have tried logging into a few websites, logging out and visiting the "sign in" url again, expecting that it would log me in automatically, it didn't.
Then I thought it might have something to do with pre-populating login fields with login credentials which chrome saved from previous logins, but that pre-form filling behaviour seems to occur automatically when you chose Save rather than never when chrome prompts to save your password.
What does chrome's "Auto Sign-in" option actually do?
