We’re excited to announce a new RoboForm feature that streamlines logging into websites and completing online forms: Inplace AutoFill.
Currently available for Chrome browsers running on Windows and Mac computers, this feature will soon be deployed for our other supported desktop browsers.
NOTE: In order to use Inplace AutoFill, you’ll need to install the desktop version of RoboForm, if you haven’t already.
Using Inplace AutoFill to Log Into Websites
When you’re ready to log into a website, just click the RoboForm AutoFill Icon beside the Email/Username field, and select the appropriate RoboForm Login or Identity.
RoboForm will automatically fill in your site credentials and submit the login form for you.
If you’re manually logging into a new site, after you enter your site credentials, RoboForm will AutoSave the Login to your RoboForm account. If you don’t want to save the Login, just click Undo in the Login Saved confirmation dialog.
Using Inplace AutoFill to Complete Online Forms
NOTE: If you haven’t already set up a RoboForm Identity, you’ll need to do so before using Inplace AutoFill to complete online forms, such as shopping checkout or sign-up forms. To get started, refer to Creating an Identity.
To complete an online form, just click the RoboForm AutoFill Icon beside the first field, and select the appropriate RoboForm Login or Identity. RoboForm will automatically fill in all relevant information for you — name, email address, shipping information, credit cards, and more! No typing required.
Depending on the complexity of the form you’re filling in, the RoboForm AutoFill Icon may appear multiple times on the form — at the start of each section of the form that corresponds to a category of information from your RoboForm Identity: Person, Business, Passport, Address, Credit Card, Bank Account, Car, and Custom. To complete long forms, you may need to click through multiple AutoFill icons.
