Chrome’s auto-fill feature is a boon for users, who frequently register their credentials online (to subscribe for any free contents) or buy products/services via credit/debit cards. Once you save your name, address, and credit/debit card details on Chrome, you can use the same data anytime in future. The auto-fill facility saves your time as you need to enter the same information again and again.
But there is a flipside of saving your sensitive information on cloud; many users are apprehensive that their private details might be misused. Normally, Chrome saves info like name, organization, street name, city, state/province, postal code, country, phone numbers, email IDs, and credit card information.
If you wish, you can make changes in the information you saved on Chrome auto-fill page. To edit the details, you can use either the desktop or mobile version of Chrome. Note that the data is saved in your Google personal cloud, and therefore, this information can be accessed from anywhere in the world; at the same time, make sure to sign out of your Google account if you are using others’ computer.
