Chapter 8. Exploring the Internet > Filling Out Forms on the Web

Filling Out Forms on the Web

Safari can use information in your Address Book or data you previously entered in an online form to automatically complete online forms you need to fill out in the future. AutoFill () is a service that helps you complete online forms and log in to Web sites with a user name and password. You use the AutoFill pane of the Safari preferences to select, modify, or delete which information AutoFill uses to complete a form or log in. When you use AutoFill to automatically fill in information, Safari highlights the data in yellow so you can see the changes. If you no longer need the AutoFill service, you can keep Safari from automatically completing forms and log ins.

Set AutoFill Preferences

Click the Safari menu, and then click Preferences.

Click AutoFill.

Select or clear the Using Info From My Address Book Card check box to enable or disable AutoFill from information in your Address Book.

Select or clear the User Names And Passwords check box to enable or disable AutoFill from Web site log in information you've entered.

Select or clear the Other Forms check box to enable or disable AutoFill based on data from other online forms.

For any of the selected check boxes, click Edit to view or remove information stored by AutoFill.

Click the Close button.
