How to disable and edit safari’s autofill on macos and ios.

Safari's AutoFill will automatically complete information for contacts, passwords, credit cards and more.

Quick Links

Editing or disabling autofill on safari for macos, editing or disabling autofill on safari for ios.

Safari's AutoFill will automatically complete information for contacts, passwords, credit cards and more. Today we're going to discuss how to turn off or edit those AutoFill entries on macOS and iOS.

Whenever any form data is autofilled, Safari highlights them in yellow.

To turn off any or all AutoFill forms in Safari on macOS, first open Safari's preferences from the Safari menu or press Command+, on your keyboard.

In Safari's preferences, click the AutoFill tab You'll see a list of the things Safari can autofill.

Uncheck any items you don't want Safari autofilling, or click "Edit" next to any of the four items to change the actual data Safari has saved. This includes:

  • Using info from my contacts : When you start typing any personal information about you, or any other person in your Contacts, into a form (name, address, phone number, etc.), Safari will autofill the blanks.
  • User names and passwords : Clicking "Edit" will simply switch to the Passwords tab, which will let you amend any of your login information contained therein.
  • Credit cards : This will open a credit card dialog allowing you add or remove payment information. Double-click on an entry to update a credit card's information including the cardholder's name, card number, and expiration date. Before you can edit any sensitive data, you will have to enter your system password.
  • Other forms : Click the other forms "Edit" button to edit or remove any or all form data you have saved for a particular website. This is particularly useful if you frequently visit a website with forms you need to fill in time after time with the same information.

Safari on iOS can also fill in form data automatically. To access the AutoFill settings on iOS, open the Settings and tap "Safari".

Next, scroll down to the General options and tap "AutoFill".

In iOS, the options are slightly different than on macOS. You can still turn off your contact information, names and passwords, and credit cards, but there is no option for other forms.

The My Info option will let you choose another contact to use as your device's main contact, or again, you can edit your own contact information so it is up to date.

You can also view, add, remove, and edit any saved credit cards.

You may have noticed, in the previous screenshot, that there isn't any obvious way to edit saved login information. To fix any stored usernames and passwords, tap back to the Safari settings, and then tap "Passwords" right above the AutoFill settings.

Keep in mind that AutoFill will automatically populate any forms on your devices, regardless of who is using them. Thus, you should only lend your devices to people you trust, or simply turn off AutoFill if someone else is going to be using your Mac, iPhone, or iPad.

One final note: user login details and credit cards are stored in your iCloud Keychain ( unless they're not set up to sync to iCloud ), so when you add, delete, or edit either of these items on any one device connected to your iCloud account, the information will be populated to your other devices.

That's really all there is to it. Safari's AutoFill settings are simple enough to understand. Now, if you no longer want certain information to automatically populate forms, you can turn it off. Similarly, if the information is incorrect, you can fix it.

This wikiHow teaches you how to delete your name, credit cards, passwords, and contact information from Safari on your iPhone.

Clearing Your Name and Contact Information

Step 1 Open your iPhone’s Settings.

  • When Safari automatically enters your name and contact details into a form field, the information comes from your Contacts card. This method helps you prevent Safari from pulling information from Contacts so you don’t have to delete your own Contact card. [1] X Research source

Step 2 Scroll down and tap Safari.

Clearing Account Passwords

Step 1 Open your iPhone’s Settings.

  • If you aren’t asked to enter a passcode, you don’t have any AutoFill data stored.

Step 5 Tap Edit.

  • To prevent Safari from saving passwords in the future, hit the back button, tap AutoFill , then move the “Names and Passwords” switch to the Off (gray) position.

Clearing Credit Cards

Step 1 Open your iPhone’s Settings.

  • To prevent Safari from saving cards for AutoFill in the future, tap the back button, then slide the “Credit Cards” switch to the Off position (gray). [2] X Research source

Seriously into modules since 2004

From its humble beginnings in 2004 operating out of his parent’s tiny pump house, Gavin Curtis grew ModuleMaster into a leading-edge technology company specializing in the repair of automotive electronics. Today, ModuleMaster operates out of two state-of-the-art facilities in Moscow, Idaho, home of the University of Idaho.

ModuleMaster receives over 1,000 modules a month including ABS controllers, instrument clusters, climate control modules, trip computers, and the list keeps growing.

Customer Testimonials

I have used module master on 2 occasions for my 2004 Chevy Suburban. The first time for the ABS module and the second time for the instrument cluster. In both cases both were repaired and returned quickly, both worked perfectly. I recommend module master without any reservations! Mike D. / Long Beach, CA
I sent Module Masters an instrument cluster to get repaired that had an ignition off draw which was not the normal gauge problems that GM clusters have. They fixed it and rebuilt it and it is working great now. I couldn’t be happier!! They have great communication and very knowledgeable. THANKS!! Jesse K. / K-Tech Automotive
You folks have found the right blend of customer service and quality workmanship at a reasonable price. American trained craftsmen are the only way to go for us in this segment of the auto parts repair industry. ABS Automotive | San Mateo, CA
My motorcycle ABS unit quit. Bought a used one off the web, sent to Module Master, they sent it back with the note that it was in perfect working order with NO Charge. I installed it and it works! How wonderful to experience old school customer service, honesty, and integrity. I am sending the faulty one for repair today! Awesome! Wonderful! Stuart D. | Atlanta, GA
Just a short note to thank Gavin and his team at Module Masters. Just received my second front seat ECU module for my Bentley, fully restored to original operating condition. Incredibly fast service and a massive saving over new factory parts, I literally saved hundreds of dollars!! I highly recommend Module Master and will certainly use their services again for future projects. Ken W.

  • How do I change the auto-fill phone number in Safari? It always chooses the wrong one. How do I change the auto-fill phone number in Safari? It always chooses the wrong one. How do I fix that? Where are the settings? (Appreciation of good intentions not withstanding, please no suggestions about "delete the one you don't want." I have several phone numbers (as most people do) and obviously do not wish to delete any of them. Besides, I should be the one who chooses which one is the one for the auto-fill, not some mysterious algorithm of Apple's. Also, again, please, no suggestions to "try this or that and see if it works." I just want to know where the setting is. It has to be someplace, but it isn't obvious.) Much thanks! 3229 5
