iPhone, Tutorials

Are you tired of seeing incorrect autofill suggestions on your iPhone? Don’t worry, changing the autofill settings is a simple process that can be done in just a few steps.

In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of changing autofill on your iPhone. So let’s get started!

Step 1: Open Settings

To change the autofill settings on your iPhone, first, open the Settings app. You can find the Settings app on your home screen or by swiping down and using the search feature.

Step 2: Scroll down and tap Safari

In the Settings menu, scroll down until you find the Safari option. Tap on it to access Safari settings.

Step 3: Tap Autofill

Inside Safari settings, look for “Autofill” and tap on it. This is where you can manage and customize your autofill preferences.

Step 4: Customize Autofill Options

Now that you are in the Autofill settings, you have several options to customize how autofill works on your iPhone:

Name and Passwords

If you want Safari to remember your name and passwords for websites, make sure the “Names and Passwords” option is enabled. This will allow Safari to automatically fill in login credentials for websites that you visit frequently.

Credit Cards

If you want to store credit card information for faster online shopping, enable the “Credit Cards” option. With this feature enabled, Safari will securely store your credit card details and offer them as an autofill suggestion when making online purchases.

Contact Info

If you frequently fill out forms with your contact information, enabling the “Contact Info” option can save you time. When this option is enabled, Safari will offer to autofill your contact information like email address, phone number, and mailing address.

Step 5: Manage Saved Autofill Information

Besides customizing the autofill options, you can also manage the saved autofill information on your iPhone. To do this:

Clear All Autofill Data

If you want to start fresh or remove all saved autofill data from your iPhone, tap on “Clear All” located at the bottom of the Autofill settings page. Confirm the action when prompted.

Edit Individual Entries

If you want to edit or remove specific autofill entries, scroll down to find the “Saved Credit Cards” or “Other Forms” sections. Tap on any entry to edit or remove it from your autofill suggestions.

Step 6: Test Your New Autofill Settings

Once you have customized and managed your autofill settings on your iPhone, it’s a good idea to test them out. Open Safari and visit a website or form where you usually use autofill. If everything is set up correctly, Safari should offer relevant suggestions based on your preferences.

Congratulations! You have successfully changed the autofill settings on your iPhone. Now you can enjoy a more personalized and efficient browsing experience with accurate autofill suggestions.

Remember that these settings are specific to Safari on your iPhone and may not affect other browsers or devices that you use. Make sure to adjust the settings accordingly if needed.
