How to I enable autofill/autocomplete for Safari

Do you want to know how to use the autofill feature for usernames and passwords on websites using the safari browser?

Safari can automatically fill in forms, user names, and passwords for you. But you should enable autofill feature to this work. Here I will explain how to enable autofill/autocomplete form work in safari web browser. Safari will highlight in yellow any fields that can be autofilled.

Enable autofill/autocomplete

Choose the Edit button and then click Preferences


Click the AutoFill tab and check the desired AutoFill options


Safari will find the information you entered in any of your previous forms. When it finds a possible match, it will finish entering the matching text for you. If it doesn’t fin the information, you’ll have to fill it in manually.

If you enter any information that is fillable by safari, it will ask you for the confirmation (as shown below).  You can choose to save or not to save.
