My account merged with someone else's, and I'd like to separate them

I use sync at my work. I trained a new employee in April, and helped him create a sync account in a private window on my computer. Even though he did it in a private window, it still liked our accounts together. Now every time I try to log in to different sites, it automatically fills in his username and password because he chose to have them be remembered. I would like to separate our accounts, or at least make it so that I don't see his username and password every time I try to log in. Thanks!

Yes, you obviously use one account? If he uses another account you can delete his credentials from yours.
