    If you enable chrome://flags/#enable-password-force-saving then you can right click on the password field and instruct the browser to store it. – Daniel F Feb 24 '17 at 11:38
  • @DanielF It's now renamed to chrome://flags/#PasswordForceSaving (Chrome 65) – Dan Apr 6 '18 at 13:07
  • @Dan Thanks! I've been searching for it lately and thought they removed it. That's great news. – Daniel F Apr 6 '18 at 13:57

Chrome has the Autocomplete On extension to work around the sites that code autocomplete off.

Have you already had a look at this thread: https://productforums.google.com/forum/?hl=en#!msg/chrome/_neIKCmoHb4/7VezgIG0sBEJ

It lists reasons chrome might not offer to remember a password - I checked and the site does not specify "autocomplete=off" so you can ignore that. However, make sure to follow the instructions to check that you did not tell Chrome not to remember the password.

There are several reasons why Google Chrome won't offer to remember your password:

  1. You've previously told Chrome to never save you password for that site.

On Windows and Linux, you can resolve this by following the steps in the referenced help center article [1]

On Mac, there is currently no way to browse for and delete exceptions, so using the "Chrome Application Menu > Clear Browsing Data..." tool, selecting only the "Passwords" checkbox, selecting "Everything" for the time period, then clicking "Clear browsing data" should cause Chrome to re-prompt to save passwords for all sites. We realize this is not ideal and have an open bug to add a way to browse passwords and remove exceptions on Mac [2]

  1. The site uses specifies that the browser should not remember passwords

Some sites, often banking sites (and Mint.com, @ddddod), specify that browsers should not remember passwords by marking the field with "autocomplete=off". For these sites, Chrome will not offer to save your password. We're considering adding an indicator so that you can more easily figure out which sites cause this issue. I've also heard of extensions that work around this issue, but that method is unsupported.

  1. The site submits the login form in unusual ways

There is no one way for websites to log users into a site. Sometimes sites use unusual techniques that confuse Chrome's logic for determining that a login was submitted. We're working on making Chrome better at working around these issues, but in the meantime, please file a bug so we can track these sites.
