It’s a feature that’s been in some browsers for a long time, but what sets this feature apart with LastPass is that you can have the same functionality and the same stored addresses and details across ALL of your devices and operating systems – and they’re all stored securely.
As much as we like to order and shop, bank, and generally administrate our lives online, creating accounts and typing in delivery details or policy or account details over and over again can be frustrating and time consuming – this is where the Auto Form Fill feature comes in.
You can use it to automatically store information and fill in forms on pages for items such as account, policy or membership numbers, or names and addresses. No need to store all of your addresses in a diary or address book any longer, no need to go digging into your wallet for your gym card membership number if you need to make a change to your account – you can simply store these details inside LastPass and have immediate access to all of them whenever and wherever you need them – which we think is quite useful, especially if you’re sending cards and gifts over the Christmas period!
All you need to do is simply select the information you want to enter from the dropdown list, and the selected information will be automatically filled into the form on the screen. This works on Windows, iOS (12 and above), Android, on other OSes such as Linux and in browsers using a LastPass extension or plugin.
For storing particularly sensitive details, such as banking, health insurance or other medical details, you can also set LastPass to require a password authentication before it auto fills that particular set of data, meaning that your data is protected by an extra step of security.
You can also attach files, images and notes to any particular piece of saved information, should you need to. We’ll be going into more detail about this in future posts, so stay tuned!
