Asking to save wrong passwords

I agree that it’s not ideal that we prompt a user to save her passwords
when it’s wrong. Unfortunately, the heuristics around that aren’t that
clean. They won’t always work, and sometimes we may fail to prompt the user
to save her password when it was entered correctly.
