Autofill in Chrome

In this article: Setup, Usage, Troubleshooting.                                                                         

1. Setup

Go to app’s Settings > Autofill and select Autofill in Chrome.

Enable SafeInCloud service in the phone’s Accessibility settings.

Tip: You can also access this setting via the phone’s Settings app.

SafeInCloud will ask you then for the Appear on top permission. This permission is required to show a popup with the autofill suggestions on top of Chrome browser.

2. Usage

Open Chrome and navigate to some page that requires the authentication. You will see a small SafeInCloud logo at the top Notifications toolbar. 

Scroll down the Notifications toolbar and you will see the autofill notification. Select it and unlock SafeInCloud (if needed).

Tip: You can adjust how often to require the unlock via SafeInCloud Settings > Autofill > Authentication.

The popup with the autofill suggestions will appear on top of Chrome (if there are several).

Finally, SafeInCloud will autofill the login and password on the page.

Tip: This autofill mechanism works not only in Chrome, but also in other browsers (e.g. Opera, Brave, Edge…). Some other browsers support another autofill method, see: Autofill in apps

3. Troubleshooting

Autofill in Chrome might not work if your phone has an aggressive battery optimization. Use the search to locate the battery optimization setting in the phone’s Settings app. Make sure that the optimization is turned off for SafeInCloud.

If some card does not appear as an autofill suggestion, start editing this card. Then press the Autofill (a magic wand) icon on the toolbar.

In the Autofill dialog make sure that:
a.    the Use for Autofill checkbox is on; 
b.    the fields have correct autofill attributes: User name, Password, and Website.
