iPhone 4S, iOS 5.0.1
AutoFill Names & Passwords and Use Contact Info are both turned on. It does nothing and hasn’t since I got the iPhone.
I want the username and password remembered for my email server (http not https). The text field keyboard has an active AufoFill button. Clicking it does nothing. I have never gotten a prompt asking if I want to save my username and password. Auto-filling of fields is not prohibited on this site.
Needed data is entered into the Notes field of my contact info. and Safari does not remember any data from one session to another. What do I need to do to get this to work?
I found the following in another Apple Discussion forum:
To Get Safari to Remember AutoFill:
Settings > Safari > Autofill > Names & Passwords > ON (mine was already on)
Settings > Safari > Accept Cookies > From Visited (mine was already set)
Settings > Safari > Private Browsing > OFF (I believe that this was the problem, as I had it turned on.)
Settings > Safari > Clear Cookies and Data (may not be necessary)
Good luck! ;-)
In fact I've now turned Private Browsing back on (and also cleared History and Cookies and Data), and Safari still remembers the website login details I told it to save. So the solution seems to be to turn off Private Browsing, tell Autofill to save your login info, then turn Private Browsing on again.
