Internet ExplorerInternet Explorer users

All the latest versions of Internet Explorer have an AutoComplete feature but do not have an Autofill feature. If you want to continue to use Internet Explorer, we highly recommend installing the Google Toolbar that includes an AutoFill feature and other features not available with Internet Explorer. After installing the Google Toolbar, you can test the AutoFill feature using our example test form.

Tip: If you would like to use an Autofill feature in all your browser, tablets, and phones see our third-party autofill tools.

FirefoxFirefox users

Firefox does have an AutoComplete feature that gives you suggestions as you type, but does not have an Autofill feature. There are several browser add-ons that allows you to have this feature in Firefox, one of our favorites is Autofill Forms, which allows you to complete a form with multiple profiles. If you need something more advanced, with features such as filling out hidden form fields, we suggest the Autofill add-on. After installing the either of these add-ons, you can test the AutoFill feature using our example test form.

Third-party autofill tools

Since most people today are using multiple devices and browsers, it may be more beneficial to use a third-party autofill tool capable of autofilling the data across multiple browsers and devices. Our favorite autofill utilities are Dashlane, which is available for both PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad, and Android devices and RoboForm.
