    This misbehavior makes it very problematic to use my third-party password manager to create and store passwords. Commented Feb 2, 2019 at 17:20

    Agreed, frequently it overwrites the generated password I just got from 1Password with its suggestion, which is infuriating.

  • For those who navigate primarily by keyboard, the escape key dismisses the jarring prompt.

The correct answer is: there is no way to disable the suggested passwords "feature" without completely disabling auto-fill.


At least as of MacOS Ventura, it is possible to selectively turn off password suggestions without completely turning off autofill:

Safari > Settings > Passwords > Autofill > [unselect "User names and passwords"]

Screen grab of unselecting "User names and passwords"


Safari->preferences->passwords, delete those you do not want.

    The question isn't about auto-filling existing passwords, it's about automatically creating new passwords.
