Hi Cooterbrown. Let's find out why Safari is asking you for a username and password! That's not normal behavior. It's not an exclusive club! Does this happen with every web page you visit? When you open Safari, what type of internet connection are you using? Is it through your 3G/4G service, or is it via WiFi? Your phone may be connecting to a WiFi hotspot that is secure, and is asking for login credentials to grant you access to its services.
Please let us know if this issue is still popping up, as we'd like to assist with this. Thank you cooterbrown, and take care!
