How to Make Chrome Stop Offering to Save Credit Card Data

The first thing you want to do is fire up Chrome, click the menu icon, and then click on “Settings.” Alternatively, you can typechrome://settings/ into the Omnibox to go directly there.

Click the menu button, then click Settings

Scroll down until you see the Autofill heading and click on “Payment Methods.”

Click Payment Methods under the Autofill heading

Untoggle the switch next to “Save and fill payment methods.”

Untoggle the Save and fill payment methods option

Advanced Autofill Restrictions

For this next part, we’re going to head into a part of Chrome you may not have known existed: Chrome flags. These are often experimental features that let you test out things that are currently in development for Chrome.

Before you start clicking and tweaking your little heart out, remember that most of these features are not finished. They’re mostly there, but not completely. As a result, these flags can cause your browser or computer to become unstable—and the more flags you tweak, the higher the chances of this happening. We’re not trying to scare you away from trying things out, of course, but you should keep your expectations in check.

Also, Google might remove any of these flags at any time, so if a feature suddenly disappears, it could potentially have been discontinued. It doesn’t happen very often, but it does happen sometimes.

If you’re still interested in this experimental feature, open a new tab and type the following into the Omnibox:


Once the address opens up, type “Credit Card” into the search box.

Type Credit Card into the search box

Scroll down until you see “Credit card autofill ablation experiment.” Click the drop-down box, then select “Enabled.”

Select Enabled from the drop-down menu for the Credit card autofill ablation experiment flag

When enabled, credit card autofill suggestions no longer display when accessing payment fields and forms.

Next, to make sure no more windows pop up and offer to save your information, let’s look at a couple of other flags to disable.

From the search box above, type in “Google Payments” and select “Disable” from the drop-down menu for these two flags:

  • “Google Payments card saving checkbox”
  • “Enable offering upload of Autofilled credit cards”

Select Disabled from the drop-down menu for both the Google Payments card saving checkbox and Enable offering upload of Autofilled credit cards flags

These changes will take effect the next time you relaunch  Chrome.
