by Abhishek Bhatnagar on May 3, 2010


I recently gave my Laptop to the service center for some hardware repairs. I don’t want them to know my passwords which are saved in my Internet browsers like Google chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer. In this article I will tell you how you can remove your saved passwords from these browsers and stop these browsers to save your passwords.

Lets go one by one, lets start with Firefox:

Remove Saved Passwords From Mozilla Firefox


Open Mozilla Firefox and Navigate to the Tools > Options


This will open up Options Window as seen below, click on Security and Uncheck the option which says “Remember passwords for sites” and the Click “Saved Passwords” button.



On the saved Passwords Window, click the “Remove All” button to remove all saved passwords from Mozilla Firefox



Remove Saved Passwords From Google Chrome


Open Google Chrome, click on the settings icon at the right top corner and click options


On the options Window, click on the “Personal Stuff” tab at the top and select the option “Never save passwords” and click the “Show Saved Passwords” button.



On the Passwords and Exceptions screen, click the “Remove All” button to clear all saved passwords.

At the AutoComplete Window, uncheck the options to “Usernames and Passwords on forms”, this way it will not save your passwords now on.

That helps so much! I knew how to do the passwords in Internet Explorer, but not in Chrome and Firefox.
