Make Online Shopping and Surfing Easier with These Form Fill Profile Tips

As we move more and more of our daily lives to the digital realm, online shopping and registration for services is now an everyday activitiy. While shopping and registering for services online is convenient, the repetitive typing of forms to complete checkout or sign-up processes is time-consuming and redundant.

LastPass form fill profiles help reduce these processes to just a few clicks. By creating and using form fill profiles, your personal information is accessible but secure.

Setting Up A Profile


Getting started with form fill profiles is easy, and you can create as many profiles as you wish for your personal information, business information, and different credit or debit cards.

Click your LastPass browser icon, and select the "Fill Forms" menu to then choose "Add Profile" or "Add Credit Card".
In the dialog box to create the form, you'll fill out all relevant details you may want filled for you, such as your name, address, and other contact information.
If you have several credit or debit cards, we recommend setting up one profile with your billing information, and separate credit card profiles for the credit card numbers themselves, so you can mix and match profiles as needed.

Using A Profile


Once you've created a profile, LastPass will show the fill form notification menu when it recognizes you are on a site with a form. You can also click in the first field of a form to trigger the fill form notification.
When the notification appears, you can click the "fill form" button, and select the profile you want to use on that page. It's that easy!

Getting the Most Out of Form Fill


Once you've set up a few form fill profiles, here are some additional tweaks to help you get the most out of the feature:
  • Mix and match profiles by selecting the "Choose profile and credit card" option in the notification menu.
    This makes it easy to have multiple billing, shipping, and credit card profiles that can be used simultaneously.
  • Select the "default form fill profile" option in the Preferences menu of the LastPass browser icon. You can then set the hotkey for the default profile in the Hotkeys tab (such as Ctrl + Alt + T). Next time you need to autofill your default form fill profile, you can simply use the hotkey.
  • Since LastPass makes it easy to fill out forms as needed, consider removing your stored credit card information from online accounts. If you frequent sites like Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other retailers, you can login to remove your stored information and rely on LastPass to securely insert your data when you need it.
Happy Shopping!

  1. Awesome feature which I use daily! I wish there was a way to have a different billing and shipping auto-fill profile as well.

  3. Form filling does not work for me, although I have my credit cards details in my profile specified. It is not filling the fields in web page asking for card number, expiry date and so. The problem may be in language. I can set language for every card (it is one of parameters), but the number of available languages there is limited. My language (Czech) is not included there. Does anybody here have the same problem?

    1. Unfortunately form fill is only available for certain languages at this time. LastPass may still be able to recognize the form, though, if you click in one of the fields on the page does it trigger the form fill notification? If not, the team can take a closer look with you: https://lastpass.com/supportticket.php
