Hi There,
I like the autofill feature for forms on websites.
BUT it turns out in the compnay we using a CRM app and everytime I add a new customer chrome tries to autofill each field with my info (very handy when I am registering on other places tough) but is a pain when I use this crm.

How can I prevent autofill to work on a specific URL?

Thank you!

Any chance this could be added as a feature request? I work in tech support, and there are some particular sites where I need to work within the same Chrome user/profile (for sessions across multiple sites/domains) but auto-fill is very disruptive on one particular site.

Thanks

I can't make another Chrome profile and have it work with my company's forms: any other suggestions? This has been a serious issue on reports where I need to log in to various users' content to compile, then my information is overriding theirs....

This is a headache! So many people use online databases, CRM, etc. I support hundreds of users, most of whom don't have access to create a new profile fro Chrome...nor the skill set! #it'strue.  But their name keeps populating in customer/client profiles!  If Chrome won't make exceptions by website, I need to switch to another browser and advise my users to do the same.

It's so annoying whenever I try to enter math equations and symbols into my college's website.  For some reason, it keeps autofilling in my address and blocks my form. Please include blocking autofill on certain websites in your next update.

I'll be using Firefox until this is fixed up. 

I simply can't use my companies software in Chrome as this annoying autofill makes it impossible. i even have to delete some boxes several times before the autofill goes away!!

This "feature" does not help at all! We make administrative softwares, with heavy use of forms, and while we can disable autofill on other browsers, we can't on Chrome. So I ask: why google decided to ignore "autocomplete='off'" on the forms tag?

The inflexibility of Chrome is leading us to point users of our web apps to use IE/Edge to get round the autofill issues, It breaks type-ahead/autocomplete fields and causes confusion. The automcomplete=off/false attribute needs to be reintroduced!

Having a similar issue within my company. When using Web Apps that have text fields with 'name' where they are entering data like to a company list, there is a drop down that is in the way of the web app drop down. If we were able to disable chrome auto-fill drop downs for specific sites, that would be great. Please consider this for a next feature update. Thank you

This feature would be incredible - I manage a large bookshop in the UK and we use Chrome. We need to fill in customers' addresses on our DHL account for shipping, but the Chrome autofill suggestions pop up on top of DHL's country/town/zipcode suggestions that need to be clicked to confirm. We're unable to click them, as the chrome suggestions are always on top.

Chrome auto fills empty credentials in my Jenkins configuration. Whenever I open the configuration page, Chrome automatically fills fields that have to be empty. If I forget to clear the fields, automated deployment of the software to remote servers fails. This lacking feature of Chrome costs us time and money. It must be possible to exclude certain domains. It looks like many people are suffering from this. The autofill feature is not complete without the capability of excluding certain sites.

This is a huge problem in our business and I see quite a few use cases posted here https://www.reddit.com/r/chrome/comments/anxama/disable_autofill_on_certain_sites/

Is it possible to solve this with a chrome extension?

Google and Chome are NOT going to do anything about this. Are we sure that Safari is not able to get this done? Firefox? If its all about Chrome failing to deal with this, I can simply live without Chrome since I'm in the Mac ecosystem and rely on the keychain to do it all for me. I mean that's what the issue is right? auto-populating password boxes like an idiot? So if I click save on any config in the myriad dashboards I use the random inappropriate password is then SAVED to the site and I'm in the Security Failzone...

OK. so here is Safari: 
  1. Click on Safari from the top menu and then click on Preferences from the drop-down.
  2. Click on the AutoFill tab and then click on the Edit button beside the Other forms option.
  3. From the pop-up, select the website you do not want to autofill data for and then click on the Remove button.
So apparently it's not only possible, it's easily done with Safari and a quick little search revealed that yes, you can get an extension for Firefox called "Form History Control" by Stephan Mahieu, which allows for fine-grained control of the Autofill feature there... so no excuses for Chrome/Google exist for them to just ignore this for years and years.

More searching. I'm a little ADHD. 

There's Autocomplete On! Chrome extension which appears to be what we are all looking for. It does allow blacklisting and whitelisting specific URLs so that's a win for Chrome being lazy and complacent. How capitalist.

I have a similiar problem in my office. My users use Chrome (though possibly not for much longer if I can't find a way to resolve this) with our web based ERP system. I need a way to turn off the input suggestions for that url  because they process customer orders through this ERP and it keeps suggesting quantities and item codes from previous orders...which have no bearing on the order the user is currently working on.  Off to go explore other browsers I guess.

Auto-fill need to be turned off on specific websites that I develop. This change is badly needed, as I can't even test my forms without juggling with Auto fill completely. I will try to move to Firefox till that time.  This is really pestering.

Please add this feature to chrome!  In our company we are all fed up, everytime we are entering information in the CRM and Support system, autofill comes up with our personal info. It is a convenient feature so I don't want to completely disable it. Thank you Google! You hear me talking all day for accurate advertisements, now hear me out on this!  :)

Mine doesn't autofill unless I click on it, but then it will erase anything I've put into other fields. For example when shipping to a customer, I fill out the customer's info, then autofill my info, and it completely replaces all the customer's info with my own also. Being able to disable for just this one shipping website would be extremely helpful.

We have internal software where it would never be appropriate for chrome to auto fill the the computer users information but I guess because the input name has "first name" in it chrome INSISTS on providing a prompt to enter the computer users info.  This is very annoying to our users and it appears the only way to disable this is to change the user preference on every single computer/user profile or do some terrible nasty naming convention on input fields basically obfuscating their names. 

This would be the same for crm software where it would never be appropriate to enter the current users information.  PLEASE provide some tag/flag/header something to disable this feature for specific pages/forms where this feature would never be appropriate.

This current thread is massive along with two other here.

I had this issue with the JIRA Board list drop down in their left sidebar, since the search field activates automatically and the google suggestion covers up the project at the top of the list.

I do believe developers can choose to program an auto-fill blocker for each of their form fields, manually, if a UX issue is discovered to warrant it. Most don't write that in by default, however, since auto-fill is handy in most cases. Perhaps you could write that page's web admin a note, with a screenshot showing how autofill blocks functionality, to ask them to push up a change for this.

As for self-managing it, what I found was that you can clear your individual suggestions with shift+alt+delete (true delete, not backspace) on a Mac (not sure about Windows) to get the suggestion window out of the way in a pinch. The next time you go back, though, you'll get new suggestions. To clear all possible suggestions in one go, you'd need to go to Settings > Clear Browsing Data > Advanced > Autofill form data and wipe everything under that option for all time. Anything newly input would naturally cause that to fill suggestions back up over time, though.

There are a couple of different auto-fill options you can disable in Chrome Settings (search for "auto" to see flags for all), but none allow you to disable it per-website. Best suggestion is to see if there's a chrome extension that adds this capability, a chrome beta or developer option that lets you manage this at a page level, or see if you can write a manual block into an existing extension you already use to modify your content viewing experience.
