Save the login password

This has always been a pain in the rear. Let me set the PC to remember the password for login. Especially helpful for when the game crashes often...

    Eh, mine saves. Not sure what problem you're having? I have mine set to "Trusted Machine".

    Steam takes care of all that for me. :)

    They won't save your password because your angry significant other knows how much you love all your precious collections. Imagine how many tickets zos would get about deleted toons if someone else was logging in to your account. Passwords are a good thing.

    use bat file with "|clip" command to copy your super secret password. At main menu just press CTRL+V.
    You can use such but file to run ESO + TTC + Minions + other useful whatevers with one click.

    I don't know, I had a boss whose password was a lengthy string that had to have been about two dozen characters long if not longer. I've no idea what it was, but we were all gathered in his office one morning for a meeting and watched him log in (from a vantage where we couldn't see which keys he was pressing as his fingers flew across the keyboard). It must have been one of his favorite quotes or something, for him to be able to remember it and type it in so quickly.

    At my age, I use my two ESO account passwords which are complex as a means of demonstrating to me that my brain isn't going, I rarely have to look them up to refresh my memory :wink: !

    That said, other specific games and Steam more generally do allow the option to remember the password and log in automatically so there's no real reason why it shouldn't be done with ESO, and it can actually be more secure than typing it each time depending on your circumstances.

    What I'd also like that is common in other games is to have a drop-down menu for the account name so if you have more than one account you can select which one to log in with each time.

    Yes, there are ways of getting round such issues, but there's no real reason why a modern user-friendly launcher can't address them in the first place.

    Agree. The game should just log you in. Logging in everytime is just a relic from MMO's decades old.
    At least have an option to do it.

    Or you could use notepad/any post it type thing to copy your password for ESO to, and then do copy paste when you need to. Hint; don't name it "ESO password". Best if you're the only one using that computer.

    So do you also claim that anyone who uses another launcher is lazy as well (i.e. Steam, EPIC, Blizzard, etc) ? 🤦‍♂️ Those apps all contain multiple games and multiple purchases as well and all include a password save and automatic login feature. The OPTION should be there for ESO as well. Better 2FA and maybe even an authenticator of sorts could be a better alternative to use to ensure security. I completely agree with others here that not having an option to save a password for a video game is simply a relic that should be locked away in a vault indefinitely. Until then, macro software like AutoHotkey works perfect to quickly fill in the password filled with a key press/combination, and it can even hit enter to login. I'll enjoy my "lazy" convenience over unnecessary security measures that I choose not to need. B)

    It's for our own good.

    I was helping out a friend, and logged in on their laptop and did some stuff in game.
    Couple days later I get an email notifying me of failed login on my account
    Changed the password.
    If I had not had the PW required to be manually input - (which IMHO does Not take a whole lot of effort) - bad things could have happened
    You never know the future. You might be logging in on a different system.

    That situation is nothing to do with this thread. It's up to individual players if they want to imprint their login information on someone else's machine, all people who follow normal protocols are asking for is an option to make things a bit easier in their rather more secure circumstances, in accordance with standard arrangements on modern game launchers.
