Android Oreo is out and it seems users cannot get enough of it. There are so many features to explore and each one is special in its own way. One of the features is Autofill which is quite handy when you are login into various apps or websites. Here, we are going to share a quick guide on how to use Autofill in Android 8.0 Oreo.
Users have been looking forward to Autofill. With so many websites and apps, it gets difficult to remember your login username and password or phone numbers etc. The feature comes in handy as you don’t need to remember the account details. You can use Autofill with either Google Chrome or a password manager. Whenever you login with your details in an account Google prompts you whether you would like to store this information. If you want, you simply need to tap Yes.
Besides just saving all your data when permitted, Autofill also works flawlessly on third-party password managing apps.

Passwords are meant to safeguard your personal details from social site accounts to bank details. Every account needs to be secured with an appropriate password which hackers won’t be able to crack. However, we usually don’t use strong passwords as we tend to forget them easily. But if you use Autofill in Android 8.0 Oreo on your device you can easily save all passwords without having to remember every single one.
