Autofill is an option found in software programs, such as Internet browsers, that allows the user to quickly fill out a common forum, such as their address or e-mail and credit card information. For example, below is a traditional shipping form you may see when ordering a product or service online. With Autofill, you can select a field in the form, choose what you Autofill data you want to enter, and all fields will be filled out automatically.
Note: Autofill should not be confused with Autocomplete, which is also an Internet browser feature that completes a form field as you are typing. For example, Autocomplete may display your full name as you begin entering it into a form field.
