How to get autofill to work for apps not browser

Views: 405 Replies: 4
Not while I am using Safari browser, but while on phone and going to an app, any app, like Netflix when I have to put in my email as part of the login i have to type it out in full no matter how many apps i go to, my Samsung would offer to autofill it in when i would start to type it. Again, this is NOT about while in the web browser on the internet, but on the phone using any and all apps. ? Thanks

Not all apps will allow for an autofill, but I have found that I can use a Text Replacement shortcut to enter my email in a few apps. It is going to depend on the app itself. I have gone to Settings>General>Keyboards>Text Replacement, and then entered my email address and then a 3 letter code. When in certain apps I can enter the 3 letter code and it will replace that with my email address.

Awesome, that works! Took me several tries to figure out how to get the phrase to then load into the box, had to hit next as anything else made it disappear, but that worked, thanks so much!

Usually just hitting the spacebar after typing the shortcut combination will work. Glad it is doing what you are looking for.
