Rember this site logins
A lot of my logins are stored by a third party password manager (StickyPassword) but several sites have a "Remember me" with one of the security questions. I've disabled all 3rd party cookies so I have to respond to the question on every login. I presume the "remember" is stored as an encrypted authentication cookie. My first question is if my understanding is correct? Second, is there a way to allow the "remember me" for websites? And third, should I? Or should I continue to make it a practice of pulling up my list of question answers each time I log in?

I personally don't have confidence in letting Windows remember my passwords. If I wanted to use a password manager, I would go with a third party program.
I would always answer NO to whether I wanted Windows to remember my password. In fact, you should be able to tell it not to ask again.
