Most browsers will save your passwords to make things easier for you. Checking your Facebook feed? No need to enter the credentials every time you log in. Your username and password will automatically be saved in your browser settings.

This is very convenient, but if someone gains access to your computer, they can get all your passwords easily. So if you’re giving your laptop for repair or if your friend is going to work on your computer for some time, it’s best to delete your saved passwords.

Here are the steps you should take to delete your passwords on all major browsers.
