How to Delete Chrome History and Saved Passwords


You should be aware that you have a lot of saved passwords, autofill data, and browsing history on your computer. If you want to delete these, you have to follow specific steps. The first step is to clear your cache and cookies. Next, you need to organize your browsing activity in a logical order. Finally, you can delete all your saved passwords and autofill data.

Clear cache

Clearing your browser history can help to speed up your browser. Some of the information stored includes your download history, autofill data, and saved passwords. Depending on your browser, the data may be stored in your cache or cookies. Therefore, it’s a good idea to clear your history regularly to prevent unwanted data from being stored on your computer.

Clearing your Chrome history is a straightforward process. You can easily remove browsing history, site data, and cookies. The process is similar on Windows, macOS, and iOS.

To clear your history, you first need to open the browser. To do this, press the three dots in the window’s top right corner. Once you’re logged in, you can access the Settings menu by clicking the icon. Next, in the left sidebar, you will see the Privacy module. From there, you will find the SCAN button.

Clear cookies

Using Google Chrome, you can clear your cookies to protect your personal information online. Cookies are small files that websites save on your computer to remember information such as your username, password, and the sites you’ve visited. They’re also helpful because they help your browser open pages more quickly the next time you see them.

Clearing your cookies is crucial because it prevents hackers from tracking your activity on the internet. It would be best if you did it at least once every few months.

To clear your cookies, you’ll need to access the Privacy and security section of your Chrome browser. This is located in the Settings menu. Once you’ve reached this part of the browser, you’ll want to scroll down to the Cookies and Site Data section.

Delete saved passwords and autofill data

If you want to clear saved passwords and autofill data from Chrome history, then there are steps you can follow. These are different depending on the type of browser you are using. For example, if you are using Firefox, you can select the “Clear browsing data” option from the “Content” tab. In Chrome, you can go to the Settings page and scroll down to the Autofill section.

You can remove specific categories of autofill information from Chrome, including email addresses and phone numbers. You can also remove individual passwords and address information. This will prevent the resyncing of your account with your other devices.

You can use the Shift + Backspace keys or click on the three dots next to the entry to delete it. Then, you can re-scan the browser to confirm that the entry has been deleted.

View browsing activity in private mode

You may want to view browsing activity in private mode for several reasons. Firstly, you may want to avoid third-party tracking cookies that can give you information to phishers or stealers. Secondly, you may want to prevent people on the same device from seeing your online activities. Lastly, you may want to protect your privacy using a borrowed computer.

Incognito mode is a feature of some browsers, including Chrome. It allows users to surf the Web without storing local data such as bookmarks and cookies. This means you won’t have any browsing history when you quit the browser.

However, you will still have a small portion of your browsing history left behind. You must clear your browser’s cache and cookies to delete this information.
