How to Remove Google Chrome Autofills

When you enter a search query in Google’s search bar, you will notice a list of suggested results saved from your previous search queries. This usually appears in the form of a drop down menu. It is a useful tool added to the search bar by Google, allowing the users to see the list of suggested results based on your previous searches. This feature also allows us to see popular search engine results depending on the first few words we type in the search bar. Although the tool was originally designed to help the users save their valuable time by making the search process more efficient and faster, sometimes it looks very boring and can be interfering.
