The autofill functionality in any browser is helpful if you are the only person using the computer. But when the option is enabled, a lot of sensitive personal information gets saved, including passwords, addresses, and credit card information.
If you are sensitive about the security of your data, it is good practice to disable the Autofill functionality. This is especially important if there is a chance you will share your laptop with another person, even for a short time.
