Fill Form Basics

Using LastPass to store the data you typically have to type into web forms is both easy and secure. Your data is encrypted locally on your computer with the key that only you know before it is sent to LastPass, so you can securely store your credit card, Social Security Number, phone number, and other sensitive data you wish to easily access.

Adding a Form Fill Profile

LastPass recommends you create different profiles for each Name, Location, and Credit Card. To do this, click on the LastPass¬†Icon and choose ‘Form Fill’ and then ‘Add Profile’ or ‘Add Credit Card’:

LastPass will then launch a Form Fill edit dialog box, where you can fill in all relevant fields:

When you see a Form Fill field icon:

You can click on this icon to bring up the Form Fills Profile menu:

Selecting the profile will then autofill the fields on the page matching with what is stored in your profile.  This reduces shopping checkouts, vacation reservations, shipping, and site registrations to just a few easy clicks.

Setting Your Default Fill Form Profile

To set your default fill form profile, click on your LastPass browser Icon and select ‘Preferences‘ to launch your LastPass Control Panel. In the last section on the General tab, labeled ‘Form Fill’, you can select a default profile from the dropdown menu and select ‘OK’:

The Default Form Fill profile is useful when you are using the Form Fill hotkey for web forms.
