Auto-filling passwords and password learning

To fill out login forms, you have two options: use the MyGlue Chrome Extension, which was designed for this, or open the MyGlue web app, go to the Passwords list view, and copy and paste your credentials into the webform.

Using the MyGlue Chrome Extension to auto-fill passwords

The browser extension detects when you go directly to a site's sign in page and lets you choose whether to sign in using a stored credential or not.

When you first get to the sign in page, the MyGlue logo will display in the password field. If you want to sign in, click on the logo which prompts you to choose a stored credential to fill in the username and password fields.

Your username and password are inserted into the webform for you as shown in the example below.

Filling in a different field (password learning)

The password field is detected automatically. Depending on the layout of the fields, the extension may not put the username in the right field. If this happens, you can change where the username is filled:

  1. Click the logo and choose the matching credential.
  2. Click the Filled in the wrong field? message.

  3. Click Learn.

  4. Click your cursor inside the username field on the website.

That's it! When you sign in again to this site, the extension will now know where to fill in the username and password.

Bypassing the MyGlue auto-fill logo

If you go to a website that you do not want to fill from your MyGlue stored credentials, you can use the Ctrl+/ (Mac: Cmd+/) keyboard shortcut to bypass auto-fill.
