    Unsure where this might belong but time for a new thread anyway. I had thought something was wrong with my laptop for when I open Google Chrome and click the 3 dots at top R corner and click Settings at bottom of list it always seemed to open with Syncing instead of settings list. Until I once looked to the Left Panel and saw it as I remembered. Then I discovered since I often work with reduced window size I tried enlarging the window toward left and was amazed when I saw the missing Autofill. etc appear as always before. I guess I never realized the window opens only as large as I had it before I suppose. But having gotten my settngs menu back , I found I have 3 different logins for eBay. One is the one the "thief of FedEx was using to steal my identity and write thank you's to eBAY. What is easiest and best way to see which to use (hopefully a different one, and maybe see which one emay uses. Since my PC is set to save passwords I never have to type any or keep lists or books of them. I believe I only want or need ONE login, not multiples. But how to find out which one without losing them all.
    I just looked at saved passwords and I have 7, and not all are the same. What do I DO??? Maybe some are oder like if I changed and did not delete previous. How do I fix this EASILY?

    I am looking for a way to go about changing my 7 ebay sign-ins to only one but am unsure how to go about it. Can anyone suggest an approach? It appears I have 7 complete but different logins.

    I had thought since I have my computer save passwords so I do not have to make lists of them and type them every time. I have 7 passwords and usernames which is way too many but I do not know how to change his. I thought I would turn off the save passwords button so I would have to type them each time. Then I would go to site, choose a login and try it. If it works I could mark it on my list. Each time I test one and mark it I would log out and go to site fresh and try each login to see and verify and mark which works. I all work I could just delete all but one. Since I do not type them I have no idea which one ebay might be using. Do not know why I wound up with so many. I have not tried this yet and have found no theft or damage evidence so I might be OK for awhile anyway. I guess I thought it clever to automatically have computer remember the logins but now I see why it might not be the best idea. I have done nothing yet. I was considering emailing eBay and chat, seeing if they could help. Any tips or opinions would be helpful.

    You never know what these computers are going to do. I recommend keeping a paper list of your usernames and passwords for each of the sites you register at. You can use a word processor or spreadsheet program if you like, but print out a paper copy.

    Also, use a unique password for each site. I recommend unique passwords because if one site gets hacked and discover your password, the bad guys can't use that password on another site to get in.

    What is the best way to find out which of the 7 signins to eBay that eBay is using and how to get rid of the unwanted ones? I am not sure how to do this and need advice without compromising my privacy. Ithought I I might just turn off the auto sign in button but am now unsure. Also I am afraid to email ebay about this. Unsure of what to do.

    Maybe if I turned off Autofill and tried to log in to eBay and just choose a login and see if it works. If not make a note of t and try another. Sooner or later one should work and those that do not I could just delete.
