Question about web browsers or other programs saving passwords in Okta

One of our Depts uses a lot of shared accounts (Twiiter, Fed Ex, Amazon, etc) and we've made it simple for them with chiclets in Okta. We recently went through each app to replace their simple passwords with complex passwords. We wanted to prevent them from having the passwords since they normally write it down or have it in a speadsheet. What I noticed was when they use the chiclet after the password change, their web browser (Chrome) prompted them if they wanted to save or replace the current stored password. Another user had Dashlane and it prompted the same thing. Now, in a backdoor kind of way, they have visual access to the complex password again (which might go on a post it note or a spreadsheet) and totally negates the reason we made the changes in the first place. Are there any features on Okta that can prevent that? Thanks.

Hi Leo
SWA apps have different options under the Sign On tab. Are you able to use this setting:
"Administrator sets username and password"
?

Most of them are currently: Users share a single username and password set by administrator.
Should I change it to Admin Sets Username & Password?

That might help. It might depend on how many apps and users/app you have, because you'll have to set the password for each user.

I've changed one of the apps to Administrator sets username and password and I'm still getting a dashlane popup to save my password. Any other suggestions?

We have a lot of web apps using  "Users share a single username and password set by administrator". I'm also looking for an option to prevent users to store the passwords in their web browser. I tried different options but haven't found a good one.
Although it is possible to disable the "Remember logins for sites" in Firefox; this disables it for ALL websites. We only want to disable this for okta mananaged credentials.
