When you enter login credentials on a web site, Safari prompts you to save the passwords so that next time you do not have to type it in. Next time you visit that site’s login web page, Safari automatically fills in the user name and the password fields from the saved passwords database. But this can be a security problem, as anyone can login to your accounts. If you want to clear your previously saved passwords, then follow these simple instructions :
- Run Apple Safari. On the top-right side, you would see a settings gears like icon. Click on it and select Preferences as shown
- In the Preferences window, select the AutoFill tab.
- Click on the button labeled Edit in front of checkbox labeled User names and passwords as shown,
- Select a domain name and password and then click on Remove button. If you want to remove all the passwords, then click on the Remove All button as shown,
- Click Done button. Then close the Preferences window.
Alternatively, you can press the keyboard combination Ctrl + , to open the Preferences window.
