Auto Fill Information

I'm trying to figure out if there's a way to pick and choose which names, addresses, emails, phone numbers, etc. are saved to our autofill information?

We're a non profit organization and occasionally we will order books online for people we serve and ship them to their homes. Edge keeps saving all of their contact information into the autofill, so the next time I'm filling in something online it's suggesting their contact information.

As the Administrative Assistant I do need to be able to save multiple names, etc. of staff, I just don't want the information of those we serve to be saved.

Is there a way to be selective of which ones save without having to keep going into the settings and delete their information?

    Hi @FPSSSADMIN ,

    Unfortunately, currently Microsoft Edge does not have such option to determine which info would not be saved and autofilled.

    But I do have a workaround for you since you've mentioned that you just don't want the information of those you serve to be saved. Use InPrivate Mode when you're dealing with customers and go back to normal Edge when you're dealing with your staff. In this case, customer info will not be saved and you can save & autofill your staff info.

    For more information of InPrivate Mode, please read this doc.
