Hello,

I work for a school district and it is against or districts technology policy for our users to be able to save passwords within browsers. We are able to fix this easily on our windows device through group policy but I am having trouble figuring out how to enforce this on our MacOS device through filewave. Does anyone have any ideas or pointers?

Nice Avatar!

For Safari browsers, you could deploy a configuration profile that disables the "Allow Safari Autofill" preference. For other browsers, I'd have to do a bit more research... perhaps there is some sort of scripted solution there...

Seems that Calum Hunter wrote an excellent article about controlling Chrome preferences on macOS, including AutoFill:

There is also a great article on this written by Nick McSpadden:
