How do I use Safari’s AutoFill feature?

Apple includes an AutoFill feature in all iOS devices that uses information from Contacts and remembers usernames and passwords. Here's how to turn it on and use it:

Turn on AutoFill:

  1. Open Settings and tap on Safari >AutoFill.

  2. Slide the Use Contact Info switch to the ON position. This tells your device to fetch data from your own entry in your Contacts list. For example, if there's a form requiring your name, AutoFill will enter your name.
  3. Slide the Names and Passwords switch to the ON position.
