AutoComplete

What is AutoComplete?

AutoComplete is a cool feature that stores a list of everything you type inweb pages (Eg: name, e-mail address, credit card information, keywords you enter in search engines, etc).

Why you should clear AutoComplete ?

While the AutoComplete feature may be helpful for some things, it can also seriously compromise your security and privacy, as anyone who has access to your computer can see what web sites you visited and what information you entered on web pages. Also various malicious software can use AutoComplete data to steal your personal information such as your name, e-mail address, credit card information and/or retrieve web sites passwords stored as autocomplete data. So, here I provided manual steps to delete AutoComplete details in browsers,
