How to Disable Autofill in Chrome, Firefox, Safari

Disable Autofill in Chrome is a little tricky. In this post, I will share the method to disable autofill in almost all browsers, especially in Google Chrome. If you want to turn off this feature, it’s easy to turn off.

When you fill a form Google Chrome (also other browsers) gives you the drop-down to autofill the form to save the time of their users.

Ok, let’s begin.

Why not use the Autofill feature?

There are few bugs or downsides in this feature such as:

  • Autofill will freeze the input (Not really but somehow).
  • If you save passwords it is also saved in Google server.
  • Anyone can access all my saved passwords by only the local device’s password.

I disabled it because of my security concern. (3rd reason)
