Step 1 – The first time you fill out a form, Google Chrome automatically saves the contact information that you enter, like your name, address, phone number or email address, as an Autofill entry. You can store multiple addresses as separate entries.
Step 2 – Chrome can also save your credit card information, with your permission. When you do this on a form, Chrome asks you at the top of the page whether you’d like to save the information.
Step 3 – If your Chrome Autofill information is correct, you don’t need to do anything more. If you have changed address recently, or some of the other information has changed, it can be frustrating for Chrome to keep suggesting the wrong info.
Step 4 – To manage your Autofill entries, open Chrome and click on the menu button in the top right corner (icon with the three dots in a column). Select Settings and then click Advanced at the bottom of the page. Find the Passwords and forms section and click Autofill settings.
Step 5 – If you have more than one Autofill entry, click the one you want to edit and then click the Edit button that appears to the right of it. Complete or edit the information form and then click OK to finish. You can also Add a completely new address using the button here.
Step 6 – To remove an entry, click on it in the Autofill settings and then click the X that appears to the right of the entry. If you want to disable Chrome Autofill altogether, you can do so by unchecking the box next to the option in the Chrome settings.
Step 7 – Now, when you start filling out a form, the Autofill entries that match what you’re typing appear in a menu. Select an entry to automatically complete the form with information from it. This allows you to have multiple entries in Autofill.
It’s important that you use Autofill only on websites you trust, as certain websites might try to capture your information in hidden or hard to see fields. Some websites prevent browsers from saving text that you’ve entered, so Google Chrome won’t be able to complete forms on those sites.
