This topic shows how to delete credentials from a credential store.



Step 1:

  1. Create a passwordVault object.
  2. Retrieve the credential or set of credentials you want to remove from the store. For information about how to do this, see How to enumerate and retrieve user credentials.
  3. Call the passwordVault.remove method.

Step 2: Deleting credentials from the store.

The following snippet from the Credential locker sample shows how to remove all credentials from the store.

try { 
        var creds = vault.retrieveAll(); 
        for (var i = 0; i < creds.size; i++) { 
            try { 
            catch (e) { // Remove is best effort 
    catch (e) { // No credentials to remove
