Password Manager iOS

Learn how to set up and use the Desktop.com Password Manager to fill and save usernames and passwords in apps and web pages

In iOS 12 and higher, Apple introduced the AutoFill feature, which allows password managers to prompt users to automatically and securely enter the login details in an app or webpage. We are glad to announce, that we have integrated it with the Desktop.com Password Manager for iOS devices, so now it becomes more convenient for users to enter usernames and passwords with added security and flexibility.
This option is available if you enabled the Organize&Search feature package

What is AutoFill?

The AutoFill feature makes it easy to fill in logins and passwords in apps that you are using daily. The updated AutoFill feature provides you with a quick and easy way to log in to your favorite apps that you use with the password manager.

Once you save information, like your app’s credentials, to the Desktop.com autofill service, you can fill out forms with a single tap. Autofill service eliminates time spent on typing repetitive information and also obviates the need to remember all your passwords. Therefore, the right information will be stored once and you will be sure, that it’s filled for you correctly.

Another great aspect of autofill is if you have new passwords, which you haven’t used yet when you do so the first time, you will be prompted to save the data to the Desktop.com autofill service
