    I've tried turning on autofill but when I tap My Info I get a list of email addresses I've written to. I've tried typing my name in but that doesn't work.

    Can someone tell me what I'm missing?

    Thanks

    Sam

    Have you done all the following:
    Tap Safari in the Settings app.
    Tap Passwords & AutoFill. ...
    Slide the Use Contact Info switch on, if it's not. ...
    Tap My Info to tell Safari which contact in the Contacts app is you.
    Slide the Names and Passwords switch on to have Safari remember user IDs and passwords when you log on to websites.

    Thanks for replying. I've done what you mention down to tapping My info. When I do that none of the contacts is me!

    Thanks. I've done as you say. I went to a site that needed my name and email address & started to print these in. I expected Auto fill to take over and complete the information but it didn't.
    What am I still missing?

    Doesn't Autofill appear at the top of your keyboard? I haven't used my iPad in ages, but that's where I find it on my iPhone. Just touch it to populate the fields.

    That's what should happen. I am puzzled it's not working for Sam.

    Just a thought, Sam. Are you using Safari in private browsing mode? If so, it won't allow autofill to input the data.
