Remembering and typing the passwords for all of your online accounts can get difficult if you use a lot of different passwords.
Fortunately there are services like Lastpass that can help to remember and autofill your passwords, as well as options in most browsers that can do it, too.
The default Safari browser on your iPhone is a browser with an autofill capability, and you’ve likely been asked by Safari if you would like it to save a password after you type it in.
This can be very convenient, but you might prefer to manually enter passwords for your various online accounts instead.
Our guide below will show you how to turn off the password autofill for the Safari browser on your iPhone.
How to Stop Safari from Filling in Passwords Automatically
The steps in this article were performed on an iPhone 11 in iOS 13.5.1. This will stop Safari from filling in your passwords, as well as any app that uses information from Safari. This won’t affect other browsers like Chrome or Firefox, as they have their own password autofill settings.
Step 1: Open the Settings app.
Step 2: Choose the Passwords & Accounts option.
Step 3: Tap the button to the right of Autofill Passwords to turn it off.
Note that this isn’t going to erase any of your stored passwords. If you would like to delete stored passwords, select the Website & App Passwords option at the top of the screen, tap Edit, then touch the circle next to each password you wish to delete, then select Delete at the top-left of the screen.
