How to Clear Username History From Facebook

By Rob Harris

Some browsers keep your Facebook username history to make it more convenient for several users to log in quickly. When you click on the username box in Facebook, a drop-down box often appears, listing recent usernames. Users can click on their usernames to save time by not having to retype them. To clear this history, you must delete your browser's history; this information isn't stored in Facebook, but rather as part of your Web browser.
