Re: Chrome thinks every field is a password field and offers to create or save the password

Chrome has started thinking every field in Airtable is a password field and pops up the 'Do you want to save this password?' after I finish typing in any field. It is very annoying!

It is also preventing me from choosing a date in a date field because it pops up the 'create a strong password' right on top of the calendar and I can't click on anything!

I've tried Googling for instructions for how to block the password autofill/offer to save on just one site, but can't find instructions exactly. 

Is anyone else having this issue? As far as I know, I didn't change anything about Chrome, this just started happening.

Thanks Lucas! I just disabled that on my Chrome and crossing fingers. I utilize the password saving feature in Chrome quite a bit. Doesn't look like it gets disabled overall with this experiment being off. 

I also tried this and I didn't work for me 😞 

Terrible timing as I'm trying to learn how to make my first Kanban

So you don't have to kill it completely, just turn off 'offer to save passwords'. if you are not creating new/updating passwords on the regular, this is not a terrible solution.  other solution above on the experiment flag disable may be better. 

That worked! Thank you so much.

Same here.

chrome://flags/ > "password generation experiment" did not work for me either.

Disabling password manager or auto saving passwords is not an option.  Use it too much.

Appears to be a bug that AirTable introduced some field (probably hidden) or perhaps attribute to other fields that looks like a password field to Chrome.  AirTable, please fix asap!  


AirTable, please at least acknowledge that you've seen and reproduced this issue.

I am using Firefox for my airtable work. The bug is not present on Firefox. I feel like I have a desktop software for 'airtable'. 🤓 For me it is the best workaround while this problem is fixed.

Yes, also here with Chrome. Disabling auto-save passwords in chrome is not an option for me; I use that too often.

Same! Hoping for a fix soon.

Thanks a lot! It helps to hide suggestion in dates, but still stays in search bar, that is not so ennoying.

Same here. It's beyond annoying.
