moderated Re: Stopping Google Chrome suggestions


Hi Gezim,

The only way to temporarily remove the prediction text is by clearing your browser history completely but after some time it will appear again.

Have never been able to remove it completely. Also under Chrome Settings > You and Google > You'll find the option to toggle off the Autocomplete searches and URLs and toggle this Off.

Also if your google account is synchronized with chrome try going to and clear all your google activity and check if that works for you.

But, first, I can tell you I'm running Chrome Version 80.0.3987.149 (Official Build) (64-bit), and these settings do not make the slightest bit of difference for autocomplete in the URL/web address/omnibox (pick your favorite term).

When you open Settings, the You and Google section is first, and the Sync and Google Services settings are under it.  When expanded, you will find the Autocomplete Searches and URLs toggle.  I've got mine toggled off, but it still does it.  This could possibly be because I have not recently deleted all browsing history, but I know when I have it still eventually "comes back".

Autofill is related to web forms, and it's in the Autofill section, which comes next, and there is autofill for passwords, payment methods, and addresses and more (and in this case they don't mean web addresses).
