Clear or Delete Browser Stored Passwords PDF Email
Web browsers store passwords that you type in web sites forms using an "auto complete" feature that shows you what you have typed in the past so that you don't have to remember them. While the AutoComplete feature can be helpful, it can also compromise your security and privacy, because anyone who gains access to your computer can use stored passwords to log in to web sites or use special software to retrieve web site passwords stored as autocomplete data. You can remove password stored in your browser.
