Nowadays, to access anything on the internet, you need a login ID and Password. You have to sign up and remember all the passwords. Most of us prefer using the auto-fill feature to avoid the hassle of remembering the passwords. 

If you are using Mac, you might have come across Safari. Safari browser supports the AutoFill feature so that you can easily log in to any site or app without entering the credentials. 

We have become so used to the AutoFill feature that we don’t even know how to view and edit the passwords. It is quite risky to save your passwords online. 

To follow the safety practices, you need to constantly edit and change the password, or you can altogether delete it to prevent yourself from stolen passwords.

Safari:

It is a web browser like Google Chrome. If you are using any device that works on the Mac Operating System or iOS, Safari will be the default browser in that device. It is the default browser for all the Apple devices.

AutoFill Feature:

When you open the Safari app in your Mac, you will find this AutoFill feature. This feature helps you to save usernames and passwords. You can also save your credit card, debit card, and bank details. 

Next time when you use the website or app, you can directly use the Auto-fill feature to enter the credentials without actually typing it.
