LastPass form fill profiles help reduce these processes to just a few clicks. By creating and using form fill profiles, your personal information is accessible but secure.
Setting Up A Profile
Getting started with form fill profiles is easy, and you can create as many profiles as you wish for your personal information, business information, and different credit or debit cards.
Click your LastPass browser icon, and select the "Fill Forms" menu to then choose "Add Profile" or "Add Credit Card".
Using A Profile
Once you've created a profile, LastPass will show the fill form notification menu when it recognizes you are on a site with a form. You can also click in the first field of a form to trigger the fill form notification.
Getting the Most Out of Form Fill
Once you've set up a few form fill profiles, here are some additional tweaks to help you get the most out of the feature:
- Mix and match profiles by selecting the "Choose profile and credit card" option in the notification menu.
- Select the "default form fill profile" option in the Preferences menu of the LastPass browser icon. You can then set the hotkey for the default profile in the Hotkeys tab (such as Ctrl + Alt + T). Next time you need to autofill your default form fill profile, you can simply use the hotkey.
- Since LastPass makes it easy to fill out forms as needed, consider removing your stored credit card information from online accounts. If you frequent sites like Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other retailers, you can login to remove your stored information and rely on LastPass to securely insert your data when you need it.
