Prohibit Browser from storing passwords

Hi folks,
Any idea how to prohibit users to store passwords on web browsers: chrome, fire fox, safari using Jamf?
This is critical as it's SOC request.
Thank you everyone

Hi Eskobar, I found this was discussed in Jamf Nation. See if this helps you out.

You can use Windows GPO Keys as an explanation and test it out. 

We use a configuration profile that uploads a .plist on the device with as the preference domain.

An urgent request, that phrase has always sounded funny to me. The 1st question I would ask with any new management; "Why are we doing this?" Disabling syncing the passwords with an online account I totally understand. But disabling cashing passwords locally is a different story. Depending on how well SSO is setup in your environment it may cause more problems than good. Edge syncs passwords between devices with Azure by default, I would find out if that is enabled in your Windows environment (this also effects edge on macOS with a network account signed in). 


For Safari I believe this is done with a restrictions configuration payload. Disable the password stuff under functionality. 

For Chrome you would disable the password manager.

Firefoxes documentation is not quite as good, but they provide you the json. I would assume this is in firefoxes password manager also.

Documentation for Edge. Microsoft provides a custom schema you upload in to JAMF and just select the correct drop down.

Hi all, 

Thanks for the details input

I could block PasswordManger for chrome using jamf config profile.

The config profile couldn't be applied on firefox.

I was following

Compatibility: Firefox 60, Firefox ESR 60 (current version 102.0)

Do you think that FireFox CCK2 extension can work better ? any tuto ? looks old as well
