How to Turn Off the Credit Card Autofill Option in Safari on an iPhone

The Safari Web browser on your iPhone has an AutoFill feature that can save information that is tedious to repeatedly type on your phone, but which you often need to enter when filling out forms on websites.

The type of information that AutoFill can save includes your contact information, usernames and passwords, and credit card information. This is meant to make it easier for you to perform actions on websites where you need this information.

However, you may not feel confident storing your credit card information in your browser, and decide that you no longer want Safari to ask to save that information.

Our guide below will walk you through the steps required to turn off the Credit Card option of the Safari AutoFill feature.
