I want the browser to not retain username and password. How do I do?

You're gonna have to be a little more specific in your description than that – Mathias R. Jessen Jan 28 '12 at 16:40

If you mean "Basic" auth, then there's nothing that you can do.

HTML forms can dictate that a browser should not retain a password, but there's no mechanism to do this for Basic auth.
