Most browsers have the feature to save your password and login information for each website you visit. While it is a handy feature, many of us don’t want our browsers to keep our passwords. Maybe it’s because you use a shared system, or you are worried about a security breach, you have the right to choose not to save your passwords. If you are using Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge, it is very easy to disable password saving on these browsers.
How to Disable Password Saving in Google Chrome
To disable the feature to save passwords in Google Chrome, open the Chrome browser on your system and click on the ‘three vertical dots’ at the right corner of the address bar to open the menu. Then select Settings from the available options open Chrome settings screen.
Click the Passwords option under the Autofill section from the settings screen to open password settings of the browser.
You will see an option named Offer to Save Passwords at the very top of the Password settings screen. Turn the toggle off to disable password saving. Now your browser won’t ask you to save passwords for websites.
You can also open this setting by clicking on your profile icon next to the address bar, and then click on the key icon. It will say Passwords if you hover the mouse on it.
How to Disable Password Saving in Microsoft Edge
The process to disable password saving on Microsoft Edge is quite similar to the one above since it uses the same platform as Google Chrome.
