How do I change Google autofill?

Answered by Stephen Mosley

To change Google Autofill settings in Google Chrome, follow these steps:

1. Open Google Chrome on your computer.
2. Click on the Chrome menu icon, which is represented by three vertical dots located at the top right corner of the browser window.
3. From the drop-down menu that appears, click on “Settings.” This will open the Chrome settings page in a new tab.

4. Scroll down the settings page until you find the section labeled “Autofill.” It should be located towards the bottom of the page.
5. Within the Autofill section, you will see different options such as “Passwords,” “Payment methods,” “Addresses and more,” and “Other forms.” These options represent the different types of information that Chrome can automatically fill in for you.
6. To disable Autofill for a specific category, such as “Passwords,” “Payment methods,” or “Addresses and more,” click on the arrow next to the category to expand it.
7. Once the category is expanded, you will see a toggle switch next to it. If the toggle switch is blue and positioned to the right, it means Autofill is enabled for that category. To disable Autofill, simply click on the toggle switch to turn it off. The toggle switch should now be grayed out and positioned to the left.

8. Repeat step 7 for any other categories you wish to disable Autofill for.
9. After making the desired changes, Chrome will automatically save your settings.

It’s important to note that disabling Autofill for a specific category means that Chrome will no longer automatically fill in that type of information for you. You will need to manually enter the information each time.

In my personal experience, I have found it helpful to disable Autofill for certain categories, such as payment methods, when using a shared computer or when I don’t want my personal information to be automatically filled in. This gives me more control over the information I share online and helps to ensure my privacy and security.

Changing Google Autofill settings in Chrome is a simple process that allows you to customize your browsing experience and choose which types of information you want Chrome to automatically fill in for you.
