Fixing Chrome Autofill Problems

If you use Google Chrome as your default browser, you have probably experienced issues with autofill. While this feature is meant to make browsing faster and easier, there are times when it can be more of a hassle than a help. In this article, we'll explore some common issues with Chrome's autofill and how to fix them.

Incorrect Autofill Suggestions

One of the most common issues with Chrome's autofill is that it suggests the wrong information. Whether it's an incorrect email address or the wrong credit card number, this can be frustrating when you're trying to complete a transaction quickly. One solution is to clear your autofill data and start fresh. You can do this by going to Chrome's settings and selecting "Privacy and security." From there, select "Clear browsing data" and make sure to select "Autofill form data." This will remove any saved information, and you can start over with accurate information.

Incomplete Autofill Information

Have you ever had autofill fill in just part of a form? For example, it may fill in your name and address but not your phone number. This can be annoying and time-consuming to correct. To avoid this issue, make sure that all of your autofill data is complete. Go to Chrome's settings and select "Autofill." Make sure that all of the required information is entered, including phone numbers and email addresses.

Autofill Doesn't Work at All

Another issue with Chrome's autofill is when it doesn't work at all. If this is happening to you, make sure that autofill is enabled in your browser's settings. Go to "Settings" and select "Autofill." Make sure that the "Autofill Forms" option is turned on. Additionally, check to make sure that you have saved information in Chrome's autofill data. If you haven't saved any data, there won't be anything to autofill.

Autofill Security

One concern for many people is the security of their autofill data. If you're worried about security, make sure to turn off the "Offer to save passwords" option in Chrome's settings. This will prevent Chrome from saving your passwords, and you can rely on a secure password manager instead. Additionally, be careful about what information you save in autofill data. Never save sensitive data like social security numbers or credit card security codes.


Chrome's autofill feature can be a time-saver when it works correctly. However, there are times when it can cause more problems than it solves. By following these tips, you can make sure that your autofill data is accurate, complete, and secure.
