Does anyone know of a password manager that encrypts and stores the actual session data from web-browser?

Like... (when unlocked) automatically place the required cookies/session data in corresponding folder so the browser would never have to log-in to the websites.

I was thinking this would be a cool feature, but haven't come across any software that does it.

I want a feature called "brainwave recognition" by which the machine would automatically understand my thoughts and passwords in my memory to automatically login to websites so that i don't have to move my fingers or need to click my mouse.

I know you're being a smartass, but I'm sure Tesla will have you covered soon enough, lol.

The reason I thought of this feature, is cause the best I have found is one that 'automatically' logs in once you are at the login page, and I wondered if anything existed that I haven't noticed yet.

This would be a security problem and also doesn't work because of changing cookie data like timestamps.

What did you want archive?
Automatically logins? Every browser provide that natively.
If other people use your PC: encrypt your drive, use different Windows accounts with login data required and you're safe.

No need to reforge the wheel ;)

I thought cookies can be set not to expire? Why would it be a security issue? Everything would be encrypted until entering a password, then the software would restore the session data in the browser.

I use drive encryption, etc., just thought it could be an extra layer of security and was curious if anything like it existed, and I'm surprised nothing does.
