Went to Settings ---> Safari ----> AutoFill ---> My Info and confirmed that my email is listed correctly, which it is

Each time I go to an online form and try to use the AutoFill button it always enters my old email address and not my current email address.

Does anyone have any idea how to fix this problem?

Thanks,

Have you tried turning off AutoFill, Names and Passwords or Clear All?

Sorry, I should have been more explicit. Do Safari, AutoFill, Names and Passwords - try turning this off. Also, just below Names and Passwords, you can try Clear All.

Open up your contacts folder, select your name, then click edit and change it. Obtuse isnt it?

I'm having a problem when using auto fill . It fills in my Facebook email. I've tried editing my contact info by filling in my email but the screen reverts back to the Facebook address when I'm done. I've tried to click on the fb email while editing but I can't. Thanks for your help.

In Settings > Safari there are some auto-fill options. With Use Contact Info ON you select a Contact using My Info.

You can either edit that contact in Contacts, trying to make your primary information the first in each category (email, address, etc.) or you can create a contact with only the info you want, and point Safari at that contact instead.

I recommend the second approach. It's just simpler.

I used the second method awhile ago and works perfectly. I just added new on tract with the proper email and used that in safari.

I finally fixed my autofill problems which were only filling in my name and incorrect email address by turning on autofill on my iPhone as well as iPad. Now it works! Hope this helps others.
