It’s never a good idea to have your browser save sensitive info. For example, you might be tempted to have your browser save your password for easier access to your favorite sites. But, the dangers behind doing that are that anyone that accesses your computer, tablet, or phone can log into all those sites.
It can get even worse if you saved all that important data, and then you end up losing your device. If you’ve saved information in Firefox autofill or suspect you might have, it’s worth the time to remove all that information to stay safe.
How to Erase Personal Information on Firefox Autofill
To access Firefox’s autofill, click on the three-lined menu option and click on options. In the search option type forms and the Forms and Autofill option should appear. If you want Firefox to stop adding your address to forms, uncheck the option.
Below the addressed option, you’ll also see the option to disable Firefox from auto-filling your credit card information. Uncheck the box to stop Firefox from adding that information. To remove any credit card information you’ve already added, click on the Saved Credit Cards option; the same applies to the addressed option.
Select the addresses or credit card information you want to remove and click on the Remove option. Having Firefox fill in the information for you is indeed a lot easier, but it’s not necessarily safer. It’s best to take those extra minutes in manually entering any information you need to.
The less personal information you have on your browser, the better. By not keeping your personal information on any browser, the fewer probabilities that your information will fall into the wrong hands.
