How To Remove Saved Usernames From Chrome

If you’ve ever used Google Chrome to access one of your favorite social media sites, such as Facebook or Twitter, you may have noticed that the browser automatically saves your username. The next time you visit the same site while logged into a Google account, your username is auto-populated in the login prompt. Even if you never intended on saving your username, this feature can be annoying and intrusive. 

How To Remove Saved Usernames From Chrome

  • Open Google Chrome and click on the “hamburger” menu (three parallel lines) in the top-right corner of any Google Chrome window.
  • From there, choose “Settings” and click on “Advanced.”
  • Underneath “Privacy and security,” uncheck the box labeled “Saved passwords and website logins.” That’s all there is to it! Now, whenever you sign into a social media website with Google Chrome, it won’t remember your username for next time.
  • Alternatively, if you only want to disable auto-filling of browser logins from now on, follow these steps:
  • From within the same menu — hamburger menu (three parallel lines) > Settings > Advanced — uncheck “Autofill usernames and passwords.”
