Autofill and Form Filling Overview for Windows

Sticky Password brings autofill and form filling on your Windows computer right to where you need it – the input fields on the web page. Filling forms has never been this easy.

  1. Sticky Password icons in your input fields

    When Sticky Password is running on your Windows computer and you're browsing the internet, you'll see small Sticky Password icons in the input fields. This means that the autofill engine is ready and waiting to help you with the given input.

  2. First-time login to a web account – data capture

    Sticky Password detects when you login to a web account for the first time and prompts you to add a new account. As a result, your data will be securely stored in Sticky Password’s encrypted database and ready for use by the autofill engine the next time you visit the site.

  3. Clicking anywhere in the input field

    From now on, when you click anywhere in the input field in a login form, the list of your existing logins for that web account will appear.

    (Note: The list of logins appears only if none of your logins have been set up as a default Automatic Login, in which case you’ll be automatically logged in using the default login and password.)

  4. Clicking the Sticky Password icon in the input field

    When you click the Sticky Password icon in the input field, a context‑sensitive menu will appear. Now the autofill engine will prompt you with all the options available for that type of field. It’s the faster and better way to autofill forms.
