This brief tutorial shows students and new users how to disable autofill for credit cards in Microsoft Edge Browser when using Windows 10.
By default, Microsoft Edge offers to save credit card details and automatically fill out payment details the next time you want to checkout online. The AutoFill feature lets users auto-complete credit card information using previously stored information in web forms.
This can be convenient but can also lead to payment information being compromised.
When using Windows 10, you can turn off or disable this feature for all users on the system so that credit card details are never automatically saved and are not used to auto-complete web forms.
To get started with disabling saving credit cards in Edge, follow the steps below:
Disable Saving Credit Cards
By default, Microsoft Edge offers to save and auto-complete credit card information in web forms using previously stored information. You can keep this default setting or disable it.
To disable saving credit card information and auto-completing in web forms, open the new Microsoft Edge, go to Settings and more > Settings.
When the Settings page opens, go to Profiles. Under Payment info, move the block to disable Save and fill in payment info.
Or you can simply type the URL below in Edge browser to go directly to the PDF documents settings.
Disable Saving Credit Cards via the registry
You can also disable saving credit card info in Edge from the Windows registry.
If you’re logged in as an administrator, you can also disable this feature via the Windows registry. To do that, use the steps below:

From there, right-click on the Edge key and select the New > DWORD (32-bit) Value option to create a REG_DWORD value if you don’t see the existing AutofillCreditCardEnabled value already created.
