  • Hello, Shield team,

    Here’s a problem that’s been around for a while:

    Whenever Shield is enabled, Chrome auto-fills login data into fields where it doesn’t belong, e.g. the search filter field on the media library. Now, I can’t see any of my media.

    When I empty the field, the user name comes back after a few mouse clicks. This happens only when Shield is enabled.

    Up until a while ago, Chrome had an option to stop this autofill feature and only show user data as a dropdown when one clicks on the field. However, that option was recently nixed.

    I’d love to keep using Shield and hope you can find out what’s causing this.
