Auto Fill

Description

 

The Auto Fill feature enters the user name and password defined in a entry into the web site login controls.  For this feature to work you need to have a browser extension installed and configured properly. The most popular Windows based browsers are supported: Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Internet Explorer.
