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.

Using Custom Fields

 

LastPass Form Fill formfill provides many built-in fields. However, you may find yourself wanting to fill other fields as well. You can do so using Custom Fields.

When editing a Form Fill formfillprofile by clicking on the edit icon edit, click on the Custom Fields tab:

customform

Each row corresponds to a single Custom Field. Every Custom Field must have its Text and Value boxes filled in.

Text to find contains the descriptive text next to the field you wish to fill on a website. In case there is no text on the website, it can also match the field’s name or ID. Matches are case-insensitive, and partial matches are allowed. For example, ‘MSN’ would match both ‘MSN’ and ‘msn id’.

Value to fill contains the value you wish to fill into the field. It can be multi-line, but keep in mind that multiple lines can only be filled into a multi-line text box on a website, not a single-line text box.
