Question: re Stored Form Fill Data

Post by BobH »

Often my PC fills in name and address and some other information when I encounter a form. I first thought that it was my browser (Firefox) that was doing this, but if so I cannot find where the information is stored. This got me to thinking that it might be Win 10 that's doing it.

Does anyone know what app serves this function? And, more importantly, can one edit and delete it?

I found options in Firefox which I disabled and I deleted all the data it had stored, but somewhere in the back o fmy mind is a niggling memory about a similar function in Win 10.

:cheers: :chocciebar: :thankyou:

As far as I know this is a browser feature, not a Windows feature.

Many third-party password management apps will fill in addresses also.

Thanks, guys!!

I took them out of Firefox. We'll see if they come up again. I can control form filling with Roboform; so I don't think it was doing it.
