Remove country code from autofill

Autofill currently saves phone numbers with +(country code) at the beginning of the number, and the browser will not allow you to delete the country code from your autofill form. Most online forms don’t accept country codes, so when you use the autofill feature your phone number pastes incorrectly. So for example if your phone number is +1 (234) 567-8910 it will paste into the online form as (123) 456-7891 instead of (234) 567-8910. Having to manually re-enter your phone number every time makes the autofill function pointless, and if you forget to change it manually or simply don’t notice that it autofilled incorrectly it can lead to consequences such as lost deliveries, missed appointments, and even trouble with certain agencies (bill collectors /etc) when they are unable to reach you at the phone number listed on the form. Please allow us to delete the country code from our phone numbers on the autofill form, or at least put in some way for the browser to detect whether a country code is being requested on a form.
