How to Delete from Browser Auto-Complete History (Chrome / Brave)

Hover over the entry you'd like to delete, hold shift, and hit the delete key!

Sometimes Browser auto-complete is a little too aggressive and it starts saving stuff that you don't want it to save in the autocomplete list for form fields on various websites - things like tokens, birthday gifts, etc.

So here's what you do:

  1. Click in the field with the autocompletes (so that the list shows up)
  2. Hover over the offending list item
  3. Hit Shift + Delete

Boom! That's it.

At the very least this works in Brave (Chrome), but I suspect it's probably a common convention that works in Safari, Firefox, etc as well.

Also, if you're a developer and you don't want the browser to save inputs for a particular field:

<form autocomplete="nope">
    <input type="text" autocomplete="nope" />

Possible values you might want to use are:
