Windows will store your login credentials for servers, websites, and programs if you will use this feature. When you open one of those websites or programs, Windows will try to log you on automatically.

This is very useful if you always forgot the passwords in different email accounts and websites. Just don’t forget to Backup for restoring them later when needed.
