I have password saving turned off, but Brave still suggests usernames on web sites with
<input name="username"> (even if it’s not an appropriate username for the site, e.g. an email address for sites that don’t use email as username).
Of course, at one point I accidentally hit tab while typing a password and have half of a password saved as a username. I’d like to delete that one (and generally prevent username saving completely), but I can’t find anything in options related to saving usernames, just passwords and addresses.
How can I remove a saved username from that list and/or prevent saving & suggesting usernames?

You can disable Autofill for addresses here: chrome://settings/addresses
For all other fields, you can do this:
On every exit, your Autofill data should get cleared now.
Thanks for the reply, but i tried this and it doesn’t work.
I’ve got no data saved here and I can still see usernames getting auto-filled.
Can you check
Menu --> Settings --> Additional Settings --> Autofill --> Addresses & More and see if there’s anything listed there? Can you give some examples sites in which this is confirmed to occur?
@Mattches we’re close!
If I toggle off
Save and fill addresses in that menu, then Brave no longer autofills those usernames. However, the list of addresses under
Saved addresses will appear here is empty.
If I toggle
Save and fill addresses back on, then it fills in usernames again, and the saved data I want to remove is back — it appears I might not be able to delete these saved usernames via the interface.
Addresses & more menu, if you toggle this feature
On and the list populates, can you not remove them using the “3 dots” menu to the right of the form data?
