Enable AutoFill to enter contact info, usernames, and passwords automatically


AutoFillMany Web sites have “Web forms” you need to fill out. For example, you may need to enter your name and address when you purchase something online, or you may have to enter a username and password to log onto a Web site. The new OS comes with an AutoFill feature that lets you use Contact info to fill out Web forms. It also lets your device “remember” usernames and passwords, and fills them in for you automatically. The AutoFill feature must be turned on before you can use it.

  1. Go to Settings >Safari >AutoFill
  2. Turn on Names & Passwords. (When this feature is on, Safari remembers names and passwords of Web sites you visit and automatically fills in the information when you revisit the site.)
  3. Turn on Use Contact Info, tap on My Info, and select an item from your Contacts list. (Usually, this will be a contact with your own, personal info.) Safari will use this information from now on to fill in fields on a Web form.
