Check How to Fix ‘Chrome Autofill Not Working’ Issue

Chrome’s autocomplete is a very convenient feature that automatically fills in your payment information, passwords, and addresses as you browse online. It makes filling in the details so much easier and you don’t bother to remember so many details. However, sometimes Chrome auto-fill may stop working for all or certain websites, making it a difficult situation.

From broken Chrome updates or incorrect autocomplete settings to corrupted user profiles, there can be quite a few reasons why Chrome autocomplete may not work. While changing the browser can be a quick option, there are a few ways to fix Chrome autocomplete not working on your Windows 10 PC. Let’s see how.

Update Chrome to the latest version

To update Chrome on your desktop or laptop, open the Chrome menu, select Help, and click About Google Chrome. If the browser detects new updates, it will install them automatically.

On Android and iOS, simply search for “Chrome” in the Play Store or App Store and click “Update” to apply the latest Chrome update (if available).

Check Auto Fill Settings

Chrome will automatically fill in three types of information, including password, payment method, and address. It is always a good idea to check if autofill is configured correctly for some or all.

  • Open the Chrome menu. Then click Settings to open the Chrome Settings panel. Next, you should see the AutoComplete section, complete with all three categories.
  • Click on the Passwords section, make sure the offer to save passwords and automatic login are enabled. Otherwise, Chrome will not save your login credentials in the first place, which will prevent the browser from completing them automatically.
  • Scroll down the list of passwords to the Never Saved section; then you can remove the sites you want Chrome to start saving (and auto-fill) again.
  • Go to the Payment Methods section, make sure to turn on Save and Complete Payment Methods to begin auto-completing previously saved payment methods and saving (and auto-completing) new payment methods.
  • Go to the Address & More section, enable Save and fill in addresses to start auto-populating previously saved addresses and to save (and auto-populate) newer addresses.

Check sync settings

Click on the profile menu icon in the upper right corner of your browser, then click “Activate sync”. Click Manage what you sync option. Make sure the switches next to Passwords, Addresses, phone numbers, and more, and Payment methods and addresses that use Google Pay, are enabled.

Delete navigation data

The fastest way to get rid of cache data in Google Chrome is to press Ctrl + Shift + Delete simultaneously on the keyboard. A new window opens, switch to the Advanced tab, select All the time, and then check the boxes next to Cookies and other site data and Cached images and files. Finally, click Clear data.

Create a new Chrome profile

A corrupted user profile can also prevent Chrome from auto-filling your details. To solve the problem, you can create a new Chrome profile as follows. However, you will lose your previously set user preferences and save the password.

  • Open Chrome and click on your account icon (upper right corner).
  • In the account menu, select Add.
  • A new pop-up window will open. Enter a name for your profile and select a profile picture from the given list. You can edit both later. Click Add at the bottom.
  • You will be directed to the newly created Chrome profile. Sign in with a different Google account to sync data like bookmarks, passwords, etc. from that account.
