How to make the computer forget my gmail password


Most popular browsers like Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer will offer to save your passwords saved to make your web surfing more convenient, it's just so much easier when you're logging into websites automatically. Naturally, you don't want anyone but you having access to your passwords. All you have to do is type "chrome://settings/passwords" and you're one click away from the saved passwords. You'll see a "show" prompt will then pop up next to the concealed password, click on it and that it's it, all your passwords are exposed.

Google Chrome security tech lead Justin Schuh has answered the Internet's concerns on the subject. According to Schuh, once an attacker gets past the OS login page, they could possibly find users' passwords along with other potentially sensitive data stored in your browser. Naturally, this has raised some valid concerns about the security and privacy of Google Chrome's users. If you want to turn off this feature from your computer's browser here's how you can do that.
