I know how to delete saved form data in Chrome, but I'd like to be able to see all of the entries stored for fields.

When I type a into a form, I get a list of a few items that I have typed before in that field which begin with a.

I would like to see a complete list, though.

  1. Go to http://sqlitebrowser.org/ and download SQLite Database Browser.

  2. Execute SQLite Database Browser and open file %userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Web Data
    (on some systems, this may be %userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Chrome Web Data)

  3. Click the Execute SQL tab and then copy the following query:

    select *
    from autofill
    where name in (
      select name
      from autofill
      where value_lower like 'one-data-entry-of-you'
    );
    
  4. Replace one-data-entry-of-you for some text you know you have entered in that field. But try to use text that is not used in many fields: the more peculiar the better, because if the text replaced is used on many fields you will see all the entries for those many fields at the same time.

  5. Click Execute Query.

    Thanks! I used the SQLite Manager Addon in Firefox and it worked great. – Gus Dec 27 '10 at 21:22

    Or you can open your file at C:\Users\YourUserHere\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Web Data. Where "Web Data" is the filename. – Junior M Feb 25 '14 at 15:57

    I also got Invalid file format while Chrome was open. Closing Chrome completely allowed it to be opened in a SQLite browser. I've now removed the unwanted entries. (I also discovered that Shift+Delete removes them from within Chrome.) – fredden Apr 22 '16 at 0:28

    @jj_ chrome must be closed. if you can't close it, make a copy of the file via terminal like cp "Web Data" "Web Data Copy" and it'll open without prompting for a password. – EGHDK Feb 22 '17 at 16:28

By design it only does the most recent few.
If you want something that'll do this you're gonna need something like Lazarus.
