Password registered in browser

How can i block the user password from being stored through the browser (such as Google smart lock). It does not seem very secure.

This is a function of your browser, not Confluence. 

There are some javascript and html tricks which attempt to ask a browser not to store it, but they are easy to ignore, *really* annoy your users, and often don't work properly, so Atlassian have not bothered to implement them.

Right. So as long as Confluence is being handled in a browser, I will never be able to set up the kind of security needed for FDA compliance regarding electronic signatures?

Nic Brough [Adaptavist] Community Leader Nov 06, 2017

FDA compliance does not need you to prevent users storing passwords.  If that were the case, then you would not be able to find a single web-based system that complies, and there are plenty that do.

I think you need to look again at what the compliance rules are.

Ok. Just figured that if you need to re-enter your password for approvals (which is required for FDA compliance) the intent was to make sure it is you who approved it and not someone happening to pass by your computer and clicking a button (with stored credentials). Maybe my interpretation is wrong.
