Hi! Every time you access a website using Windows 10, a lot happens. In fact, the system will store the credentials to access the site. Consequently, subsequent accesses will be easier. In addition, this data is stored in the credentials’ manager. Once there, the user can view or delete the saved credentials. As mentioned, these are very useful. For example, logging into websites, accessing connected applications and accessing networks. However, for security reasons it is possible to delete these credentials. This prevents other users from accessing the site using these parameters. Come with me to see how to remove Windows 10 network credentials.
