Any site whether for HTTP or HTTPS can use the "AUTOCOMPLETE=OFF"
attribute on an object in their HTML code to specify that the web
browser should not cache any data entered for that object, like the
<INPUT> tag for a field where you enter your login credentials. See
has been available since IE5 (support.microsoft.com/?kbid=290641).
The HTML code in a web page via the HttpCacheability enumeration can
also specify where the response data gets cached.
You might have to look at an auto-filler utility (as an add-on to IE)
that will record your logon credentials and then automatically fill them
into the login fields when that web page is revisited. I tried several
but they were adware or crippleware (to lure you into buying their full
product), and all too often they wouldn't recognize similar login pages
so you had multiple recordings for login credentials at the same site
(for example, a forum with login fields when displaying a thread would
have different page content for every separate thread which means you'd
never be able to record the login record for all those pages). I did
use the auto-logon feature in IE7Pro when I used IE7 but that add-on is
far too flaky, too many features are unusable, or it crashes (and takes
IE with it) when used with IE8 so I had to abandon using it. They no
longer moderate their forums so they've become polluted and unusable due
to getting deluged with spam posts.
