Chrome autofills old, outdated username

Post by jmt356 »

I have a web site that I am always logging into. The web site has saved my login name for years. In 2017, I changed the login name, but the web site has continued to autofill the old login name since 2017, even though each time I log in with the new name, I tick Save username. However, it does not save the new username that I enter each time. Rather, the old username always displays.

Is there a way to cause Chrome to definitively forget the old username that it keeps on autofilling?
Regards,

Navigate to chrome://settings/passwords
Do you see the information you seek here?
If not, navigate to https://passwords.google.com

It's not listed on either of those sites. It is not a password that is being saved; rather, it is a username. Each time I go to the web site, the old username is stored and I have to manually delete it and enter the new user name. The password is not saved by Chrome, so it is not displayed.
