Google added lots of features in Android 8.0 Oreo, most of which are under the hood to make the OS faster and more easier to use. One of the improvements is the Password Autofill feature which lets the user enter the username and password in the apps which support the autofill feature.
The Password Autofill feature in Android 8.0 Oreo is similar to the autofill feature on desktop browsers. The autofill feature on Android Oreo lets you enter username and password in all the supported apps. If your phone comes with the latest Android 8.0 Oreo installed then here is an easy guide which will help you to set up the password autofill feature on your smartphone.
How to set up Password Autofill on Android 8.0 Oreo
- First, you have to choose from one of the four major password manager services – Dashlane, 1Password, Enpass, and LastPass. If you are using one of these services then it’s great because it will be easier to set up. If not, then don’t worry because there will be only one additional step.
- Now, download the service on your smartphone which you use from the four services, or download 1Password if you haven’t used any of them before.
- Launch the password manager app and log in to it using your account details, or create a new account on it.
- Open Settings > System > Language, input and gestures > Advanced > tap Autofill services and select 1Password (or the service you use).
- Now, whenever you try to login to any app, you will get a prompt to autofill the details using the fingerprint or password.
Your smartphone is now ready for the autofill feature, your smartphone will now ask you to save the password you are going to enter on any app. Once saved, you will be able to autofill those details in the particular app in future. There are some more features of the password manager services which you can get after buying a subscription.
