As far as I can tell certain settings must be in place for AutoFill to prompt you to save passwords.
The settings can be changed back to your preference after you saved your passwords.
To make AutoFill work use the following settings:
Go to: Settings > Safari
- turn off Private Browsing
- turn off Block Pop-ups
Go to: Settings > Safari > AutoFill
- turn on Name & Passwords
- go to whatever websites you want to remember your Name & Passwords
- type in your Name & Passwords
- hit Go on the right side of the keyboard
- a pop-up will ask you if you want to save your password
- click Yes
I have the iPhone 3, iOS 5.1. Auto Fill is enabled. When I am on certain web pages in Safari, the autofill option "bubble" pops up with what Safari thinks I want plugged in. Most of the time it is correct and yes, I would like auto fill in the information. But what do I click on to get Safari to listen to me? I see the "x" in the autofill bubble, which means I do NOT want it filled in, correct? When I click in the space I am filling out, the bubble goes away, and the auto fill is nOT completed. How do I tell Safarai to go ahead and fill in the blank?
