Whenever you use common machine or handing over you machine / laptop to your friend or someone, every possibility that your passwords can be hacked for good or bad reasons. First option is when Firefox asks if you want it to remember your password, you need click ‘
Never for This Site’ option and to postpone the decision, click ‘
Not Now’, and Firefox will prompt you the next time you visit the site.
Follow the following steps given below to remove all the stored password:
From the top Tools menu, select Options… ( Preferences… in case of MAC users) from the drop menu list. (usually last option in the menu list)
This will open the Options Dialog. Now, select Security tab and click on Saved Password… button
One more window pop-ups with all the information about saved information.
If clicked on Show Password…, all the password will get displayed.
Last and important step is to click on Remove All and this will erase all the passwords in one go!. But don’t forget to remember all important password in your brain before deleting them. Bingo! Click Close and Ok on opened dialogs respectively and you are done.
