Your iPhone is able to save passwords for websites and accounts that you visit. This makes it much easier to sign into accounts that you need, as the iPhone can automatically fill in the information if you have enabled autofill.
But you may have a password saved that is incorrect, or that you simply might not want to be able to autofill on the device.
Fortunately you can control the autofill information, and you can even delete a password that had previously been saved.
Our guide below will walk you through the steps of removing a stored password on your iPhone.
How to Delete an Autofill Password on an iPhone
The steps in this article were performed on an iPhone 11 in iOS 13.5.1. Note that this will only delete a password that has been saved through a default app like Safari. If you have saved it in a different browser, like Chrome or Firefox, then this won’t allow you to delete those saved passwords.
Step 1: Open the Settings app.
Step 2: Choose the Passwords & Accounts option.
Step 3: Touch the Website & App Passwords button. If prompted, enter your passcode.
Step 4: Tap the Edit button at the top-right.
Step 5: Touch the circle to the left of the password you want to delete.
Step 6: Tap the Delete button at the top-left.
Step 7: Touch Delete at the bottom of the screen to confirm.
You can select multiple passwords to delete. However, there isn’t a way to delete all of your stored passwords at once. You will need to select them all individually.
