How Do I Turn Off Autocomplete On My Phone?

Saturday, March 2nd, 2013 by | Filed Under: Security Help, Smartphones

Question: I read the article on turning off autocomplete. This would work fine on my desktop, but not on my Samsung Galaxy 2 Smartphone.  So, how would you make it work on this kind of phone as more and more people are using this type of phone over a desktop?

Good question – here’s the way to do it for most Android phones. Find Settings – it is usually represented by a gear symbol on your menu. Then select Language and Keyboards.


Choose Keyboard Settings. There you can turn off everything from  autocomplete to autocorrect.



Hope that helps.

    I have a Microsoft Nokia 635 and Iwant to turnoff auto complete and autofill when im online on internet explorer. I already erased browser history and recent list. But when i type any letter a whole bunch of stuff comes up from the past. Surely there is something I can do. Thanks.
