How do I get rid of incorrect Autofill?

Answered by Robert Dupre

To get rid of incorrect autofill entries on Chrome, you can follow these steps:

1. Open Chrome: First, launch the Chrome browser on your computer.

2. Access Chrome Settings: In the top-right corner of the browser window, you will see three vertical dots. Click on these dots to open a drop-down menu. From the menu, select “Settings.”

3. Clear Browsing Data: In the Settings page, scroll down until you see the “Privacy and security” section. Here, you will find an option called “Clear browsing data.” Click on it.

4. Advanced Settings: A new window will open, presenting you with various options for clearing browsing data. Make sure you are on the “Basic” tab, and then click on the “Advanced” tab.

5. Select Time Range: In the Advanced tab, you will see a drop-down menu labeled “Time range.” Click on the arrow next to it and select “All time.” This ensures that all autofill entries, including incorrect ones, are cleared.

6. Choose Autofill Form Data: Scroll down the list of options until you find “Autofill form data.” Make sure this option is checked. This will instruct Chrome to clear all autofill entries, including incorrect ones.

7. Clear Data: Once you have selected the desired options, click on the blue “Clear data” button at the bottom of the window.

8. Confirmation: A confirmation dialog box will appear, asking if you want to proceed with clearing the browsing data. Click on the “Clear” button to confirm and initiate the clearing process.

9. Wait and Restart: Chrome will now clear the autofill data according to your selected settings. This may take a few moments, depending on the amount of data to be cleared. Once the process is complete, you can close the Settings window.

By following these steps, you should be able to get rid of incorrect autofill entries in Chrome. It’s worth noting that clearing all autofill data will remove all saved form entries, so you may need to re-enter certain information on websites. However, this ensures that any incorrect autofill suggestions are eliminated, providing you with a more accurate and personalized browsing experience.
