iOS Autofill & Submit

Penelope PitstopPenelope Pitstop Junior Member


I’ve not been very active here or paying close attention to new features for a while, so please accept my apologies if this is an FAQ.

Why does Safari on iOS sometimes show a big autocomplete banner that will fill and submit the login for a site and other times a smaller banner that only fills when I tap?

So this:

instead of this:

Both of these example sites only have a single login item in my vaults and I don’t have AutoFill enabled for iCloud Keychain.

    @Penelope Pitstop,

    We actually don't know why Safari does this. We don't have any say or control in what iOS decides to do there as it relates to being presented as the big blue button, nor the automatic submission behavior.

    Thanks for your reply @rudy.

    How peculiar! One would have thought that functionality would be very well documented in the APIs you are required to work with to integrate into the iOS feature.

    Ah well, maybe it will become clearer over time.

    Thanks again.

    @Penelope Pitstop,

    nope, it just seems to be a thing that Safari has chosen to do.
