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.

- Hover over the offending list item
- 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.

<form autocomplete="nope"> <input type="text" autocomplete="nope" /> </form>
Possible values you might want to use are:
