    Hello. Time to time I have to type over & over again some info. I was wondering if I can have Safari auto filling data, besides names & passwords.
    Thanks for your help ☺

    Welcome to the forum! There are a lot of great people here willing to lend a hand any time!

    The iPad can automatically fill in text fields with your personal contact information, usernames, and passwords of websites that you have saved. The Safari AutoFill feature is off by default. Here's how to enable it:

    1. Settings > Safari > AutoFill > Use Contact Info = On > Select "My Info" > Locate your contact information

    2. Settings > Safari > Autofill > "Names and Passwords" = On.

    Enjoy the forum and we'll look forward to hearing from you!

    Hello richsadams

    Thanks for your answer. I already have enabled "Names and Passwords". I believe that "Use Contact Info" is used only for contacts, right? This one is disabled.
    Sorry if I didn't express myself very well before. What I meant, was if it would autofill for information such as gym card number or any other data.
    Is there any way to insert data into Settings> Safari> Databases, so Safari could automatically fill in when necessary?
    Thanks! :)

    Ah, got it. I think your only option then is to use an app that will do that. I have 1Password and it does exactly that (and has a lot of other features as well).

    1Password

    You can also use 1Password on all of your computers, smart phone, etc. if you sync it with Dropbox.

    Dropbox - Simplify your life

    Both are pretty amazing programs.

    I've heard about 1Password. I'll have a close look to it.
    I've been using Dropbox and I like it very much.

    Thanks for your tip! At least I won't keep looking as an iPad feature.

    Cheers! :)
