What is AutoComplete?
AutoComplete is a feature that stores a list of everything you type in web pages - it could be your personal information such as name, e-mail address, credit card information, or keywords you enter in search engines. AutoComplete helps the user complete a web form by suggesting possible matches - you can simply press the down arrow key and select the text without finishing typing. So anyone who has access to your computer can see a drop down list with information you have typed.

Also various malicious programs can use AutoComplete data to steal your personal information you have entered in web forms and retrieve passwords stored as autocomplete data.
