My phone keeps saving what I type into chrome or the browser. I have tried erasing the history it still auto completes if I need to retype it. I understand it great to save all the info but I have typed my credit card in one of them and its saved.

How do I clear the browser's address bar auto-complete history?

If it is auto-completed by Google Chrome, please follow the following steps,

  1. Go to your Google Account Dashboard. This will list all of the information collected on you by Google.
  2. Scroll down to Web History and search for your Credit Card entry or other entries to be removed, and remove it from the history. Or you can go directly to your Web History.

  3. Further, in Dashboard you can scroll down to `Chrome Sync and click on Manage Chrome Sync.

  4. Click on the Stop and Clear button to clear all the Autofil and Omnibox History and to stop syncing the data with Google Server.

Steps 3 & 4 will merely stop Google from collecting data on Google Chrome's Omnibar (I am not 100% certain on this).


Press and hold the offending autofill suggestion. A pop up appears to "remove a Learned word".
