Google Chrome has a very handy feature that allows it to remember your username and password for any website you choose.

This can not only save you time logging in, but can also save you the hassle of having to remember dozens and dozens of individual passwords.

However, there are situations where you may not want Google to remember a given password. Perhaps you made a new account for that website, and Google automatically logging you into your old account is no longer helpful.

Or maybe you just don’t feel comfortable saving any passwords online – although password managers are generally a safe way to store your passwords.

Regardless of the reason, deleting saved passwords on Chrome is as simple as clicking a few buttons. Here’s how to do it using any browser on your Mac or PC.
