Something is adding and changing passwords automatically. I use LastPass and chrome. I try to log onto a site and an old, no longer using, insists on filling in that autofield.

 

It happens with Chrome and with Microsoft Edge. I have cleared and disabled password managers in Chrome and Edge, so the only thing that should be adding passwords is something else. I should not have another password manager. 

 

Even when I type in the proper password when I hit enter, it gets changed to something else, or just erased. Or the password is changed to a password I have not been using in years!

 

Did clear browsers. Cleared caches.

 

Latest updates everywhere. No help and it seems getting worse!

In Chrome, click on the three dots in the top right hand corner, cllick settings, scroll down and click advanced settings, then select manage passwords.  You can see what has been filled in, and change if necessary.

I have done this and cleared all the Chrome passwords. All are gone. Used ctrl+shift+delete and clear them out. Problem still there

Welcome to Bleeping Computer.

 

Has your old password manager been uninstalled?

 

I know LastPass is able to import passwords.

I think. Perhaps you mean the password manager in chrome? It is cleared out and disabled.

I wonder if one of my other programs, like some utility, antivirus has a password manager that is throwing a frog into my system?
