The autofill option is a handy tool to save some time from manually refilling the same information for different forms. If you’re a form visitor or you have created a form of your own, the autofill option is always useful. You can save predefined values on your browser for form fields such as name, email, address, country, phone and so on. However, different browsers have different settings. Follow these easy steps on how to autofill form fields from your browser:
1. Go to Settings – Autofill – Addresses and more
2. Turn on the Save and fill addressees option.
3. Hit Add and fill in the fields with the information you want to predefine.
1. Go to the menu icon and select Options
2. Open the Privacy & Security section.
3. Under the History category select Remember search and form history
4. If Clear history when Firefox closes is selected click on the Settings button displayed next to the option.
5. Deselect Form & Search History.
If the autofill does not work, check out your browser’s extensions. Antivirus and privacy programs can also clear your form history.
1. Go to the Settings – Preferences section of your Safari browser.
2. Click on the Autofill tab and select which information should be used.
1. Click the menu and select Settings – Go to Browser settings.
2. Collapse the Advanced options menu.
3. Turn on the Save and fill addressees option.
4. Hit Add and fill in the fields with the information you want to predefine.
Unfortunately, Internet Explorer hasn’t got a feature to autofill other form fields besides the username and password. You’ll find the feature in Internet Options – Content tab- Autocomplete – Settings. Enable the autocomplete option for forms and press Ok.
Important: The autofill feature will be activated once you have typed the first letter of the data you have saved on your browser (e.g. the first letter of your first name).
