Latest FortiClient App - save password feature not working?

Hi,
 
I have been using the FortiClient iPhone app for some years, and as long as I enable the save password feature on my Fortigates the SSL-VPN Client will be allowed to store the password on the device. However after either iPhone IOS upgrade I observe this feature no longer works for my connections, and I need to input password manually every time. Of course I can try to completely remove the FortiClient on my iPhone, but I was just interested in checking if someone else is experiencing the same issue here in the forum. The app settings have always survived IOS upgrades, and also the save-password feature always have been working. Now the app always requires password, the save function never works..

    I would make sure that the portal that the user is mapped to allows saving of passwords. I've run into this a couple times.

    They have updated the app to 'not store passwords'.
    I am on the old app where storing passwords was allowed.

    Finally I have found a solution.
    1_Download Forticlient for pc .
    2_connect then save configuration in <file.Conf> where <file>is the name you choose when saving.
    3_Modify file in pc, or send it to mobile to modify it with <QuickEdit> application.
    What to modify?
    4_Open <file. Config> and search for :
    <show_remember_password>0</show_remember_password
    Replace it by :
    <show_remember_password>1</show_remember_password
    5_Save it.
    6_Go to Forticlient and delete the profile, then upload the new one.
    Now you can see the option Password appears.
    7_type down your password only once, and it's done.
    I hope this will help.
    Good luck
