En­hanced Aut­oFill

Mac Format - - MAKE MORE OF EL CAPITAN & iOS 9 -

Aut­oFill’s con­ve­nience is un­de­ni­able, but there are times when it doesn’t recog­nise that you’ve saved sign-in de­tails for a form on a site you’re view­ing. If this hap­pens in Sa­fari 9, look for a key icon at the right-hand side of the pass­word field.

Click­ing the key re­veals a menu that gives you the abil­ity to choose from known cre­den­tials – not just those you’ve saved for the site you’re us­ing, but also from your en­tire Aut­oFill keychain; so, if you use the same cre­den­tials for more than one site (a po­ten­tial se­cu­rity risk, though many of us do it), this en­ables you to easy en­ter them on a site whose sign-in form Aut­oFill works poorly with.

Sim­i­larly, Sa­fari some­times would not recog­nise the field for en­ter­ing a new pass­word on a page for en­ter­ing a new one, and so it would not of­fer a sug­gested strong one. In that case, click the key to find an op­tion to gen­er­ate one.
