How to clear autofill in google chrome
Internet Explorer 11’s AutoComplete function saves the text you type in the browser’s address bar and web forms for later usage. When you type something familiar, it auto-populates text fields. Specify the data components (browsing history, web forms, and other web page fields) AutoComplete uses in IE 11 by changing the AutoComplete settings.
Internet Explorer 11’s AutoComplete function makes it easy to save web addresses, form data, and login credentials including usernames and passwords. It may also pose a security threat. Anyone who has access to your device can use the saved credentials to access websites. If your machine automatically enters usernames and passwords, it defeats the intent of getting them.

This is the fourth and final part of a four-part series on preserving Internet users’ privacy. We’ve looked at privacy problems with hardware, software, and e-mail so far in this series. In this post, we’ll take a broader look at how we use the Internet. The Internet provides unrivaled access to information for all of us, but it also poses specific risks to our privacy. This article will look at some of the ways in which you can safeguard yourself.
Many people use the Internet browser without ever considering how it will expose details about them. I covered some features of your browser that you can use to secure your personal information in the previous article in this series. There are a few more, however, that are worth investigating.
If you’re using Internet Explorer 5 or higher, you should decide whether or not you want the AutoComplete function enabled. Autocomplete helps Internet Explorer to recall previous Web address, type, and password entries. When you re-enter the same details on subsequent visits, the Autocomplete function will deliver the entire text, saving you the time and effort of typing it out again. This will certainly make using Internet Explorer easier; however, someone sitting at your computer will be able to see where you’ve been on the Web and, worse, impersonate you at Web pages that need you to enter information. While some people consider the convenience to be worth the obvious risk, it’s a tradeoff that should be carefully considered.
How to turn autofill/autocomplete on or off in google
“A dialog box appears when I fill out a form on a new website, asking if I want auto complete to stop asking me to save information. Ok, I pressed the ‘Yes’ button by mistake, and now I can’t get auto full to remember anything! Please assist!”
Gator, I believe, is a software that can remember form data on websites. Unfortunately, Gator includes marketing tools (Adware / Spyware*) that I do not want installed on my computer.
Adware is software that displays advertising to you on your screen in the form of banners and pop-up windows. Spyware is software that “spies” on you by collecting information about the websites you visit or retrieving your email address and name from the Windows Registry. After the information is gathered, it is uploaded to a central computer, where it is used (or sold) for further marketing.
It would be great to have a (separate) program that included this functionality as well as the ability to backup the data to another drive letter. If you know of one, please give me your suggestions (email address below) and I’ll include them in the next newsletter!
You could have the form field names randomized by the code that generates the page, maybe by adding some session-specific string to the end of the names, in addition to setting autocomplete=off.
After the form has been submitted, you can remove the section before processing it on the server. This would prevent the web browser from looking up meaning for your field, and it would also help prevent XSRF attacks because an attacker wouldn’t be able to guess the form’s field names.
What is the reason for this? Many banks and other “high security” websites added autocomplete=off to their login pages “for security reasons,” but this simply reduces security because it encourages people to adjust the passwords on these high-security sites to be easy to remember (and therefore crack) now that autocomplete has been broken.
Unfortunately, vulnerabilities in autocomplete implementations unintentionally insert username and/or password information into inappropriate form fields, causing form validation errors or, worse, accidentally inserting usernames into fields that the user had left blank.
