How to Edit or Remove Autofill Information From Google Chrome

Every year more and more people turn to online shopping instead of going to physical stores, as it saves time and energy. It's quite convenient to be able to purchase something from your smartphone in between your breaks or the comfort of your home after a tiring day of work.

If you're a frequent online shopper, fast checkout is a must as it's quick and makes the shopping experience pleasant. You don't want to be filling out your credit card details every time you want to buy something. That's when Chrome browser autofill comes in handy. The main purpose of Autofill is to fill out details you commonly use while using the browser. It can fill out your name, address, contact information, and payment details when at checkout. It helps fill out login information like username and password for your favorite websites, so you don't have to. Autofill can only fill out the information that you have allowed to use.

How to edit and remove autofill information in google chrome

To use Autofill, you don't necessarily need to go to the setting and enter the information separately. Usually, the Chrome browser will ask you if you want to save the information that you already entered in the website form for the future. The same goes for payment information. When you enter your credit card details and accept Autofill to use it later, it will automatically fill it next time. However, it will still ask you for the CVV security code due to security measures. What's great is that the payment information is linked to Google Pay, which encrypts payment info and stores it on a secure server.

Although Autofill is a great way to save time, you should use it only on a private computer unless you share the same information with multiple people, like the same company information that's also used by your coworkers. Otherwise, if you're sharing a Mac with your family members, it's better not to use Autofill unless you don't mind them having access to your social media or your credit card. It might also irritate them if your information is automatically filled before they can start filling out their own data to access the website or purchase something.

Even if you use Autofill on your private device, you're not 100% safe. Your personal data and payment information might be at risk if your Mac gets infected with malware, and another person obtains access to the system. You should know how to edit and, most importantly, delete autofill data. What is great about this function is that if you use the Chrome browser across multiple devices, the changes you make to the autofill information will change across all your devices.

See below how to edit and clear your data from Autofill on multiple devices.
