If you are having trouble remembering the passwords, you can save them on your browsers. Almost all browsers can save the passwords and the next time when you enter the login ID, the browser automatically enters the password.

But, this feature can have some security issues if many people are using the same browser. So, here we are to explain how you can delete the saved passwords in Firefox on your PC or the smartphone app.

Alternatively, you can click on the Firefox account button on the top right and then select the Logins and passwords option. Or, you can type about:logins in the address bar.

In the Privacy and security settings, go to Login and Passwords and then untick the box beside Ask to save logins and passwords for websites. This way, Firefox will never ask you to save the password again and therefore you will never have to think about deleting them in the first place. But remember, unticking the box will not remove the passwords that you have already saved. To remove the saved passwords follow the instructions given below.

Step 1: Click on Saved Logins. (Check the screenshot below). Step 2: On the left sidebar menu, you will see the passwords that are currently saved. In the screenshot below, I have only one password saved. You might see a list of the passwords on the left sidebar. Just click on the dustbin icon on the top right side and then confirm the process by pressing Delete again. Also read: How to enable or disable Javascript in Firefox?
