How to Delete an Email Address from the Facebook Login Screen

By Steve Gregory

Your browser's AutoFill feature automatically saves all email addresses that are entered in the Email or Phone field of the Facebook Login page. To remove your address from the website's Login field, erase your browser's saved form data through the History section of its Settings menu. To prevent automatic access to your Facebook account whenever you visit the website, clear the option to stay logged in from the Facebook Login page.

Step 2

Click in the Email or Phone field and then press the **Down** arrow key on your keyboard to display all of your saved email addresses. Hover your cursor over the email address you use to access your Facebook account and then press **Delete**. This action removes your email address from the Login field until you enter it again.

Tips & Warnings

  • To remove your Facebook password from the Facebook field on the website's Login page, open the Manage Passwords, Manage Saved Passwords or Saved Passwords section of your browser's Settings menu and delete the password.
  • If you access Facebook on a shared computer, always delete your browsing data -- including forms, passwords and history -- to prevent another user from viewing or editing your private Facebook information.
