How to remove saved passwords and Autofill data on Android

Android has a native tool to save the credentials that you use to sign in to websites. While most phones come with Google Autofill, Galaxy devices come with their own Samsung Pass service for storing your passwords for use at a later time. Web browsers available on the platform also offer to save passwords that you can sign in to a site or an app with ease the next time around.

However, if you’re like me and you care too much about your privacy, you wouldn’t want your credentials saved on every browser and autofill service there is, whether you have got a strong password that is easy to remember or not. That’s because, on an instance of a security breach, an attacker will be able to access all of your passwords by bypassing your master password.
