Will this save the username and password to the file globally?
BananaJellyfish (205)

basically, i want to know if this will save a username and a password so, lets say i posted this, if you someone else uses the same username and password, they will be able to login. i ask this because while using spotlight pages, i can change the username and password, but when i reload, it reverts the username and password to 'l'. So please someone tell me if files save things globally.

no, no it won't. Files are not reliable databases. They can reset if you don't visit the repl every few hours or so.
