How to fill forms automatically on a Mac

Filling out web forms with name, email address, billing address, credit card details and other information manually takes lots of time. If you do a lot of online shopping or often login to websites, you can save time and enhance your Internet shopping experience with Form AutoFill available in Safari.

Safari saves information you enter while filling forms and fills it automatically every time you revisit websites that require this information.

You can use the Form AutoFill feature to enter contact info, logins, passwords, credit card information and more.

While Form Autofill saves your time by filling web forms automatically, you should keep in mind that anyone who uses your Mac can autofill your information. For security reasons, you should configure your Mac to require a passcode to unlock the computer.
