The Google Chrome browser makes filling out forms and log-in credentials easy through the auto suggestion feature. However, it can be very inaccurate.
Because of that, you may want to delete auto suggestions, especially when the feature gives the wrong suggestions frequently. And if you’re someone that wants to do the same, you’re at the right place.
Hi, my name is Andreas. I’m a Mac user that finds the Chrome auto suggestion feature highly flawed. It can be handy, but it can also be very annoying. Sometimes you don’t want Chrome to autofill a form, especially if you’re filling the form with outdated information.
So that’s why I’m going to tell you how to delete auto suggestions in Google Chrome Mac.
Stick around to find out how.
Easy Steps to Delete Auto Suggestions in Chrome Mac
To delete specific auto suggestions in Chrome Mac, you need to follow a few easy steps. Let’s get into that.
Step 1: Launch Chrome and open a website with a form or log-in field.
Step 2: Click on a field or start typing so that Chrome gives you auto suggestions.
Step 3: Using the arrow keys on your keyboard, navigate to the suggestion you want to delete.
Step 4: With the suggestion highlighted, press “Shift” + “FN” + “Delete“.
The command will automatically delete the suggestion from Google Chrome. You can repeat this process for all suggestions.
But there is another way to delete auto suggestions from Chrome. Bear in mind that this method will delete all auto suggestions.
To do that, do the following:
Step 1: Launch Google Chrome and click “History.”
Step 2: From the options on the left side, select “Clear browsing data.”
Step 3: On the pop-up window, click on “Advanced” and tick the “Autofill form data” option.
Steep 4″ Select “Clear Data.”
You delete all auto suggestions from Chrome on your Mac with this option.
So right out the bat, there are two ways to delete auto suggestions. But that might not solve your problem in the future. If you want to prevent Chrome from suggesting auto sign-ins on log-in and other forms, there is a way to do that.
How to Prevent Chrome from Auto Suggesting in the Future
Chrome makes it possible to disable the auto suggestion option. With this option disabled, it won’t suggest log-in credentials, payment methods, or addresses.
Follow these easy steps to do that.
Step 1: Launch Chrome and click on the three vertical dots on the right side.
Step 2: Select “Settings” and click on “Autofill” from the list of options presented on the left side of the screen.
Step 3: You will see three options: passwords, payment methods, and addresses.
Step 4: Open each one and disable the auto suggestion option.
These easy steps help you delete auto suggestions in Chrome Mac. The last steps are all about preventing Chrome from suggesting in the first place. Disabling the feature comes in handy when using a public computer.
Since you don’t want anyone to see your log-in credentials or Chrome to log you in automatically, it’s best to use incognito mode on Chrome Mac.
