Google Chrome and Chromium, by default, offer to save login details such as username and password for websites that you tried to log in to. While the built-in password manager feature is convenient, there are times that you no longer want to save passwords for specific websites. You might also want to disable the username and password autofill feature altogether. This includes when you install third-party password managers such as LastPass, and you only want te username and password to be stored in one place.

You can delete saved usernames and passwords on Google Chrome or Chromium from the browsers' settings page. The password autofill feature can also be completely disabled from the same place.

Steps to remove saved password in Google Chrome or Chromium:

  1. Open Chrome's Setting page by going to chrome://settings from the URL bar.
  2. Scroll down to Auto-fill section or click on the sidebar menu.
  3. Click on Passwords.
  4. Click on the toggle switch for Offer to save passwords to completely disable saving passwords to Google Chrome (optional).
  5. Look for the accounts and associated websites from the Saved Passwords section that you want to delete.
  6. Click on the eye icon to reveal and read your password (optional).
  7. Click on the three dots on the right of the account and click Remove to remove the saved password.
