Default Google chrome auto fill

Does google chrome save like your home address and name automatically. I noticed when I was looking around in settings that a few addresses were saved there. Probably from ordering products online. But does chrome do this automatically without a prompt?

It only works if you have it set to auto fill forms for you.

I mean in chrome settings under auto fill it has addresses saved. All mailing addresses. I didn't save these there or was never asked to save them. I was curious if chrome automatically saves your addresses you enter for example when you purchase a item online.

Yes it is saved by default. Just like Safari, IE, Firefox, Opera, Dolphin, Chromium, Brave, Slim jet and others. It can be turned off and the data purged.

I don't think that's enabled by default. But there is an option that does it automatically. All passwords can be deleted and the option can be disabled easily.
